Now that a second payer has come out and states she has no respect for the office of the Presidency of the country that pays her and allows her to play, I went from very high interest to none at all. And I'm not a republican, I am an American.

I've just had it with spoiled brat athletes who have no respect at all for anything but themselves.

Won't even check the scores.

I simply can’t watch most women’s sports and women’s soccer is right up there with basketball in how grossly obvious how terrible they are compared to the men. Plus the fact that the women’s national team is constantly bitching about something and they just flat out annoy me. Fuck em.

Okay. But the country doesn’t pay them. USSF gets no money from the government or from taxes.

I'm watching. I don't give a rat's ass who protests what, honestly. That goes for all sports...

Specifically to Women's soccer, it is what it is... You can either appreciate it or not. Serena Williams is an awesome female tennis player, but would likely get slaughtered by the 100th ranked male... The game is a bit slower. Doesn't bother me... And to be fair, I have a daughter in travel soccer, so that probably helps shape my opinion...

To me, basketball is the sport where the Women's game is unwatchable, but to me that is due to the way basketball has been marketed here as more of a "Highlight Reel" sport and women simply cannot physically do what the men can....

Women's soccer IS like watching the WNBA. A strong high school guy's team would crush either. And I agree 100%, the USWNT is always got something on deck to be complaining about. It makes it challenging to root for them

I'd much rather watch our U-20s underachieve than the USWNT.

When they started crying about being paid less than the men and not understanding how economics work I lost all interest in them. I enjoy the U20’s though.

To be fair, I didnt give a shit about soccer before, especially if it's women. At least now I have a reason to feel good about that

Yes and no... Honestly, I think for the National Team, the pay should at least be closer and there is little reason why it can't be more equitable toward the players...

HOWEVER, women's players do have to understand that US Soccer essentially entirely props up the NWSL in the United States. Women would have no professional league if not for this fact, so it is important for them to realize this before they get TOO militant about pay equity.

All things being equal, would you rather watch a bunch of sweaty men, or sweaty women playing soccer?

Think of THAT...

Your call bro... ;)

Annnnnnnnnnd you came into the "Soccer" forum specifically to let everyone know you hate soccer?

Do you like, sit in porta-potties all day long because you hate the smell of sh!t too?

But you actually had to enter the soccer forum to find a thread about not liking a particular segment of soccer....

....Not as "special" as others, apparently.

(Eg. I don't like, nor watch golf, so I would never even click on the Golf Forum... Much less, go in qnd find a thread about not liking Tiger Woods and commenting within hypothetical thread about how I hate golf....)

just think how much better women's soccer is going to be when they start allowing transgenders to cross over

Meh. I'll watch a bit of it, don't really care about all the protests.

They ran a piece on that Norwegian player, Ada Hegerberg, ...she's sitting out the World Cup for some protest-y reasons but it didn't seem like anybody was really clear on exactly what she wants changed. Equal pay was mentioned, but as several have pointed out, the endorsements for women's soccer just aren't what they are for the men's game.

Still, I'd rather watch women play soccer than men, because I'm not ghey
