Quote of the Day

U.S. Soccer's monetary figures are equally unsettling.  In 2017, the women's team is expected to generate $17 million in revenue compared to $9 million by the men, and yet the men's salaries still dwarf the women's across the board.  For wins, the women's team earns thirty-seven cents to every dollar earned by men.  Players in the National Women's Soccer League earn between $6,842 and $37,800, while members of Major League Soccer earn an average salary exceeding $200,000.
