    Not a good match because the raw speed and power of the men is too great.

    By the way, the soccer position is that a good high school sprinter should be paid more than SAFP, etc. I do not think that they thought through what they are saying and how it is likely to be taken legally and in the court of public opinion, especially since the men have not won squat while the women are Olympic and World Champions many times over.

    Would love to see the teams play each other.

    Coke, a sponsor of the US Soccer Federation has told them this is a big mistake. I wonder if all the sponsors get together and give them an ultimatum to drop the suit and apologize or lose their funding.

    US Soccer's Astonishing Stupidity

    Individuals may have different opinions about equal pay for men and women on their respective national teams, and it is well known that the men get way more $$$ in subsidies from FIFA. But FIFA doesn't have to deal with American public opinion. I can't think of a legal position more out of tune with the times than the filings in the women's national team lawsuit for equal pay which assert that:
    The job performed by players on the women's team requires less skill, effort and responsibility than the one performed by players on the men's team... A reasonable juror could conclude that the job MNT player requires materially different skill and more responsibility than Plaintiff's job does, while also taking place under materially different working conditions.
