I had no clue where to post this but in the end all this is political but wow i laughed so hard, especially in the first 10 seconds, wow. Also pay close attention to the old woman being interviewed for commentary around 2:30. She has no clue and has so obviously been fed a few lines if you ask me but hey maybe, maaybe im wrong about that but it sure looks like it. But hey. have a look for yourselves



EDIT: Notice how the news channel tries to lie to you in those first 10 seconds "Fans are lined up!". I guess i f i was stevie wonder that i could have fallen for that one ?

Was anyone confused as to why WNBA players get paid less?

Not so much confused as outraged.
Same for women's soccer.

I'm still waiting for the first NBA scrub to go trans gender and become the #1 stat leader in every category of the WNBA. It's bound to happen.

The woman's soccer teams were offered the same pay deal as the men for the world Cup, but they turned it down.

Men typically get paid per play with a bonus for winning. Women usually opt for a fixed salary and more benefits.

This was their choice.

If it was their choice then why do they complain about it? I didn't know it was a choice they made. Then again, I don't know much about sports in general.

I can help with some mansplainin'.

Men's sports are all macho stuff like football and that other one where they punch each other in the head. Women's sports consist of sandwich making, dusting and looking cute with pom-poms.

Men suffer brain damage from sports, hence why they get the big, big money which, ironically enough, they end up spending on chicks so you kinda get paid regardless.

Maybe if they'd help sweep up after the parade they'd get some bonus pay, or made some sammiches or sumthin...

Well to be fair this was probably the cleanest parade in recorded history.
Eight spectators don't make a very big mess.

I just want to know if they threw out candy.

Excellent point.

Still, one tray of sammiches wouldn't have been off-side.

Yes.

With all the crying shouting and raging over this everywhere i dont see how this could have been missed by anyone. Its also not as if they never knew as to why but more that the facts about this get pushed aside so that they CAN complain about it in the MSM everywhere so they can default to "Muh imaginary wage gap". Nothing new or unkown about that.

Someone needs to tell these ladies that while we feel the competitive drive every bit as much as the men, we just can't show the same physicality, and people who think they watch sports for the competitive factor are mostly watching for the physicality. So no one is going to pay to watch women do what in sports what they can see men do. It doesn't diminish the hard work or effort or drive we put into it. It just is what it is.
