Snoop Dogg Wants U.S. Women's Soccer Team to be Paid Same as 'Sorry-Ass Men's' Team

By

On Sunday, the U.S. women’s national soccer team beat the Netherlands to win the Women's World Cup, the fourth time they've taken home the trophy. For those keeping count, that's four more times than the U.S. men's national soccer ream have won the World Cup. But despite their success, and the fact that women's soccer games now generate more revenue than the men's team, the players on the women's team still earn about 38 cents to the dollar compared to their male counterparts. 

An ongoing lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation by 28 members of the U.S. women’s national soccer team states that  if the men’s and women’s teams won each of the 20 non-tournament games they are contractually required to play women could earn a maximum of $99,000 ($4,950 per game), while men’s team players would earn $263,320 ($13,166 per game).
