I don't really care what athletes make, but the issue has been getting a lot of traction on social media.

Women's soccer earned $73 million globally while men's soccer's revenues were $6 billion. What to be paid more, revenues must go up.

I think the best way to achieve parity is to reduce the overpaid men's earnings to that of the females.

Sportsmen and women are vastly over remunerated for their physical skills.

I like that idea. And the extra revenue will be used to reduce the price of sporting events tickets.

You are living in a fantasy world. We pay those athletes voluntarily when we buy tickets or watch games online. You say salaries are too high, don't watch games and don't buy trademarked sports franchise items.

I also watch documentaries. Should the people who appear in them be paid vast sums?

How about local sports that are telecast? Should these players receive vast amounts of money for kicking or hitting a ball?

I do not voluntarily pay money for the massive salaries. I am compelled to pay that money in order to enjoy my favourite sports.

Sportsmen and women are not only overpaid, many are paid by a contract that sees them rewarded regardless of their contribution to the sport.

And many are paid subversively through sponsorships that are funded by you buying a shirt, or shoes or a watch that you find meets your needs without even knowing that up to 10% of the cost goes into marketing.

Well then they should be paid almost as much as males.

Sorry, just stirring the pot a bit

And I agree men and women should be paid the same...by reducing men's payments.

If the games are raking in vast sums of cash, the players will be compensated accordingly. You and I can stop this and I do. I will occasionally go down to Regina and watch the Roughriders play. But, hey, CFL players get paid blue collar wages because earning are not even close to NFL levels. I won't watch a hockey game in person anymore, but I will at the local sports bar. But, Canada has bigger problems than the salaries of hockey players.

The market can do that. Or it can pay them a lot more. We decide their salaries.

Once again the progtards managed to politicize something that should not be politicized , i.e. soccer, because that's what totalitarian control freaks do.

Women soccer players demanding they get paid what men soccer players do, is like minor league baseball players or minor league hockey players demanding they get paid what NHL and MLB players get paid, even though minor leagues generate a fraction of the revenue. Ridiculous.

Once again its the identity politics left throwing gender and race cards at everything, without ever stopping for a millisecond to examine the reasons behind why things are the way they are.
