I’m very curious about how you all (especially you non-yanks) feel about the recent actions of our World Cup winners. Here are my thoughts. · I understand that score differential in a factor in determining who advances in the tournament, so I have no problem with the team scoring 13 goals against Thailand. -- I DO have a major problem with the excessive celebrations for the goals scored after the game became out of reach. · I was embarrassed by Alex Morgan’s pretending to take a sip from a teacup after scoring a goal against England. · Many on the team, many in the media, and even some politicians are demanding equal pay for the men’s and women’s national teams. I find their ignorance of basic economics shameful. – The last men’s World Cup brought in $6 billion while this year’s women’s Cup is estimated to bring in around $131 million. If anything, the men are underpaid as they get a smaller percentage of total revenue. The men were paid less then 7% of total revenue while the women received around 20%. · Megan Rapinoe is a jackass. It’s our National Team, dammit. How dare you, in the past, refuse to stand for our Anthem (until forced to by the Soccer Federation) or now sing when you’re on your country’s team! · Megan Rapinoe is also an idiot. She believes that Trump is dividing rather than uniting the Country. So, what does she do to highlight her concerns? She decides to do something that is guaranteed to tick off a large percentage of Americans!
