Why do you keep bringing up FIFA? We're not talking about the German or French soccer pay gap. We're talking about the US. The men collected to $0 and the women collected $4 million. It's...

NBA/WNBA, or PGA/LPGA, etc. aren't great comparisons, they're totally separate leagues with their own finances. There are big sports that do pay equally. The grand slam payouts for tennis are equal...

I don't think anyone other than you sees this as appropriate.
