So why are these women soccer players filing suit? It seems to me that in the sporting world each player negotiates their own contract. So the Federation is not involved. I see this as an attention grab on the tag line "Women are treated as less valuable". Any sport that has professional players pays based upon the money taken in at the gate. If you want higher pay you have to stoke fans into attending your sports games and be willing to pay more to see you princesses play your sport. The problem is that does not happen because usually men perform better and at a higher level in most sports except gymnastics and figure skating. Get real girls.
