Sanity prevails as federal judge slaps down Megan Rapinoe’s fake ‘equal pay’ lawsuit
by Brad Polumbo | May 02, 2020

(Washington Examiner) - On Friday, sanity prevailed in federal court after a judge finally slapped down soccer star Megan Rapinoe and the U.S. Women’s National Team’s sham "equal pay" lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation. The decision has sparked widespread backlash, but when you set all the identity politics and outrage-mongering aside, it’s clearly correct based on the facts.

Federal Judge R. Gary Klausner considered the USWNT’s “equal pay” claim alleging that the women's team faces sex-based pay discrimination compared to the U.S. men’s soccer team. He found it so baseless that he dismissed it without allowing it to proceed to trial. He did allow a few claims related to travel conditions to proceed, but the equal pay claim was the heart of the lawsuit, and it was rejected out of hand.

“The statements offered by Plaintiff [USWNT] are insufficient to establish a genuine dispute that [female players] are paid at a rate less than the rate paid to [male players],” the judge wrote in his decision. “Defendant [U.S. Soccer] has presented evidence that the [USWNT] was paid more on both a cumulative and an average per-game basis than the [men’s team].”

Cue the hysterical outrage...

Judge rules US Women's National Soccer Team has insufficient evidence for unequal pay case
BY TAL AXELROD | 05/01/20

(The Hill) - A federal judge ruled Friday that the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team does not have enough evidence to bring to trial its claims that its players are receiving unequal pay, dealing a significant setback to the team’s lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation.

U.S. District Court Judge Gary Klausner granted the federation’s motion for summary judgement to dismiss the payment component of the team’s lawsuit, only allowing their claims to discrimination based on travel conditions and medical and training support to move forward.

"In sum, [US Soccer] has offered evidence in support of its Motion for Summary Judgment that the [women's national team] has been paid more on both a cumulative and an average per-game basis than the [men's national team] over the class period," Klausner ruled, adding that the evidence presented is "insufficient to create a genuine issue of material fact for trial."

Joe Biden threatens to cut US Soccer's World Cup funding unless women get equal pay
By Alisha Ebrahimji | May 2, 2020

(CNN) - Former Vice President Joe Biden pledged to cut funding to the US Soccer Federation if women don't get equal pay to their male counterparts.

The team's fight for equal pay was rejected on Friday when a federal judge dismissed the players' claims that they were paid less than the men's national team.
In a tweet Saturday afternoon, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee encouraged the women's national team to not give up their fight.
"This is not over yet. To @USSoccer: equal pay, now. Or else when I'm president, you can go elsewhere for World Cup funding," he wrote on Twitter...

The men should file the same suit, with sexes switched.

None of the women are good enough to play on the "men's" team, which is probably actually an "open" team that women could join if they qualified.

Whereas the men are better than the women and are only denied they greater money the women often make, because of sex discrimination.

If the women played naked, they would fill the stadiums which would increase revenue which would increase pay.

Should the XFL get the same salary as NFL?
