Is there more to the story here? If she's in the same competition as the dude who won hundreds of thousands (as this post seems to imply, anyway), she should receive the same amount, yeah? I feel like something is missing here.

Yeah she would, however she isn't on the main tour so she can't qualify for most of the big money tournaments. She arguably is good enough to be on the main tour, but she lost to the mens world no. 8 the other day in her first televised match, so she didn't exactly make a good case for herself.

As always they have bent the context to suit their agenda. Saying she is the best in the world at Snooker is simply objectively wrong.

At an exhibition match. She wouldn't be able to perform consistently even that well in a tournament.

Am I correct to assume that she didn't play against any of the men?

[–]achuchable11 points12 points  (2 children) | Copy

She had her first televised game against a man, Shaun Murphy, very recently and lost.

"Reanne Evans says she is "gutted" but "proud" after being a frame away from becoming the first woman to beat a man in snooker's top 16."

Fuck me. It's the same bullshit every time. If you want to get paid the same, be as good.

This sleight of hand is so idiotic. For her pay they compare her to men. For her skill they compare her to other women.

How disingenuous can journalists be?

a frame away

So, lost. Against someone not even in the bracket.

This will be like the bogus footballer claim. Players are remunerated as a fraction of the total money raised in television rights and tickets. The more money raised, the higher the remuneration. After the top women’s footballer team aired their grievances about being paid less than men, it turned out they receive a higher proportion of earnings than men. Shortly after, the women’s No#1 team were beaten by a team of 15 yo high school boys. Turns out no one wants to pay to watch mediocre sport - who knew?

Except everyone watches ronnie and noone watches her. And ronnie would clap her cheeks.

Female players don't play as well as men. They've challenged men, and embarrassed themselves.

It is not about gender, it is about market.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
