How can female football/soccer players demand equal earnings?

Reddit View
July 7, 2019
  1. Female soccer tournements have less sponsors (who also pay less)

  2. 3,2 BILLION viewers vs 900 million

  3. Lower quality - they straight up don’t have the same powerful bodies that men have

  4. This is actually crazy: -50% of men has been watching the 2019 world cup, while only 30% of females have! How can you demand your gender to earn more, while not even supporting it yourself?

The root of the problem is that women, with some exceptions, are pretty stupid and pretentious. The want to be treated equally without actually having equal ability. Nothing unique to soccer. Same thing happens when it comes to hiring: they want paid maternity leave and are then shocked when men end up being more desired employees. Try going to a feminist reddit (even one explicitly labeled as designed for DEBATE) and you'll be banned instantly for disagreeing with them and injecting some common sense into the discussion.

i mean i dont know much about football but it's fifa that primerly aswell as sky football. here in the uk anyway. Sky pays so they can have their games on their networks. they get the money back, obviously but thats how alot of premier league teams get their money and why alot of players can be paid ridiculously high amounts of money. if they pay well and have a neutral/good track record and not a nob when playing, then they will be paid well with good publicity...

thats my take on it anyway

Skills and what not are irrrelevant, it all comes down to demand and the all mighty dollar. Bring in more money and get money.

The issue people don't want to discuss is that most females are not interested in sports, and a good portion that do don't want to watch womans sports.

I like to use Rhonda Rousey as an example when it comes to $ in sports.

Despite most of her fights being less than 1minute, she was earning record money, more than the men, due to the algorithm that she bought in most money from televised subscriptions. Having said that, she earned a fraction in prize money as thats based on sponsorship and gate receipts.

Fuckin 'ell. Footy players are ridiculously overpaid anyway. I mean how can you in your entire lifetime ever spend £250,000 a week but at least they're pulling in sold out stadiums every week the women are playing in training grounds with empty stands. Maybe in 10yrs time when they've built up a head of steam they can start crying about pay.

It's because a fucking LOT of people follow soccer IN Europe, Africa and South America. I don't like it personally, but some people become just crazy over it

And the us womens team got beat by an u15 team if I’m not mistaken. If I am please correct me and point me to the facts please.

[–]OG_Builds0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

True, a u14 team beat the norwegian national team (who reached the quarter-final in the world cup)

There's a stereotype that women aren't logical, but the truth is much worse. They are biologically completely incapable of logical thought. This means they don't comprehend money and how it works, or any other concept based in reality, as reality is logical. This is how a 400 lb. woman can truly believe she's beautiful and that she eats no more than a 100 lb. woman, for example.

So in this case, they don't understand that viewers = money, some of which is paid to the players. And that since fewer people view womens sports, and fewer women view sports at all, it means less pay for female athletes. This is logical reality, a concept beyond their comprehension.

Here's the situation - for my country, the USA, or women's team has a world spotlight on them. We are proud of our team and they preform amazingly well. No one is here to say women are physically stronger then men, no one is going to tell you that they bring more revnue worldwide. However, in cases like the United States men's team earning more than women's while not bringing in the same revenue. Our men's team is simply subpar to the rest of the world while our women's is set to perhaps even win once more. Not to mention, whixh demographic watches the games dosen't matter. What matters is the women's team isn't getting the cut of their earnings that they deserve. I would love if someone could respond to this with a critical analysis of the situation rather than "hurr durr feminist is dumb".

Dude, the fact that men are stronger has literally no effect on the games if its the same sex

[–]OG_Builds0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yes, people watch sports to watch the best. You don’t sit down and watch 10 y/o kids play on the TV right?

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