DENIED: Federal Judge Rejects Equal Pay Lawsuit From U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team
A federal judge has rejected the claim made by the U.S. Women’s National soccer team demanding equal pay to what their male counterparts receive.
U.S. District Judge R Gary Klausner threw out their demand for equal pay because they had previously “rejected an offer to be paid under the same pay-to-play structure” as their male counterparts. The butch footballers were demanding $66 million, using the Equal Pay Act and Civil Rights Act of 1964 to justify their attempted cash grab.
“The WNT was willing to forgo higher bonuses for benefits, such as greater base compensation and the guarantee of a higher number of contracted players,” Judge Klausner wrote in a 32-page decision on the case.
“Accordingly, plaintiffs cannot now retroactively deem their CBA (collective bargaining agreement) worse than the MNT (men’s national team) CBA by reference to what they would have made had they been paid under the MNT’s pay-to-play terms structure when they themselves rejected such a structure,” he added.
While this lawsuit may have been tossed out, they have additional lawsuits that are active in the courts. The lesbianic brutes are contending that U.S. Soccer Federation discriminated against them in money spent on airfare, hotels, medical support, and training services. In short, these entitled ladies are high off of their unearned media stardom and looking for handouts.
“U.S. Soccer has long been the world leader for the women’s game on and off the field, and we are committed to continuing that work to ensure our Women’s National Team remains the best in the world and sets the standard for women’s soccer,” the team told CBS News.
We will never stop fighting for EQUALITY.

The U.S. Soccer Federation has contended in court documents that “the overall soccer-playing ability required to compete at the senior men’s national team level is materially influenced by the level of certain physical attributes, such as speed and strength, required for the job.” This language underscores the point that the men are vastly superior athletes to the women by an astounding magnitude.
This is particularly obvious when factoring in that the Women’s National Team was humiliated by a high school team of 15-year-old boys in 2017:
In preparation for two upcoming friendlies against Russia, the U.S. women’s national team played the FC Dallas U-15 boys academy team on Sunday and fell 5-2, according to FC Dallas’ official website.
This friendly came as the U.S. looked to tune up before taking on Russia on Thursday night in a friendly.
Just last month the U.S. lost the SheBelieves Cup, winning the first game over Germany 1-0 before losing to England (1-0) and France (3-0)…
The game will, however, serve as a great anecdote for the kids on the FC Dallas squad to tell their grandchildren about one day. It also speaks highly of the level of academy development MLS teams are doing these days.
The last thing the Women’s National Team would ever want is true equality, which would destroy the facade that they are elite athletes.
