Posted in: U.S. soccer stars tell story of fight for equal pay in new film 'LFG' See in context

This is very simple. Football (Soccer for others) players get paid not only for what they can do on the field, but outside of it. In other words, what sponsors to the player has, how many merchandising can he/she sell, etc.

Women they just cannot deliver outside the field, as simple as that. Is that fair? Ask the consumers. The problem is not of FIFA or the clubs or sponsor, the problem is that regular people like most of us, just do not care about women matches and their merchandise. How many people buy t-shirts from a mid-tier English team like Wolverhampton for example, compare to a top tier club in women football? The fact that people don't even know who are the top tier clubs in women football vs everyone know who is Real Madrid or Manchester United, tells you all.
