I'm all for equal pay under the same or similar circumstances for women or for any other group. Recently I've seen more posts about gender lawsuits in women's basketball and women's soccer. What little I've read of the underlying data doesn't suggest gender discrimination. The WNBA is owned by the NBA and my understanding is that the WNBA is operating at a loss and that the NBA continues to support the WNBA to try to give it time to grow, become mainstream and to become profitable if it's going to happen. In the case of the WNBA it looks like it's not going to happen. U.S. Woman's Soccer is very successful within the woman's soccer league but the money it draws in is much less than men's soccer. The percentage that goes to actual woman's soccer players is actually higher than the percentage that goes to men's soccer players but the men players make a lot more. This doesn't sound like a gender discrimination issue to me. It's a cultural preference and a physical limitations issue. Lebron James makes a whole lot more than the average NBA player. He is a lot more athletic. Men, in general are more athletic than women (you can redefine athletic but you get my point). The WNBA used to be on TV more and the ratings weren't good. That's why they aren't on TV so much these days and why they aren't profitable. When people don't want to watch any TV program it gets pulled. I don't understand the basis for a gender discrimination lawsuit in the WNBA and in U.S. Women's Soccer on the grounds of unequal pay. What am I missing? It's not like they are making a lot of money but the percentage going to women is a lot worse than that going to men so what are the grounds?
