    Interesting tidbit (from what I understand): Turns out under the previous contract/CBA, the women made more than the men, by way of a GUARANTEED contract.

    The men's contract was more high risk / high reward ....in that if they advance further in the World Cup they would make much larger bonuses.
    The women were offered the men's contract terms back in the day, but opted for the "guaranteed contract".

    When the women later saw that the men's bonus structure was very high/lucrative compared to theirs they wanted to move to an "equal pay" CBA / contract.

    The women wanted the higher bonuses (nothing wrong with that...especially since they have won multiple championships)....now they go them with the new CBA.....however they have given up a guaranteed contract in return.


    So basically, the ladies need to be world beaters to get the big coin.

    It's a bit of "equality" mixed with moving from one agreed contract structure to another.
    Perhaps more of a move from a guaranteed contract, to a high risk / high reward structured contract.

    Either way the men and women are now on the same terms.

    USMNT looking good in 3-0 decision over Morocco.
    They seem to be playing as a cohesive unit.

    Keeping moving forward toward the WC.

    Of course I didn't watch so they looked good and won. Pulisic calling out the lack of US fans there was nice.

    Keep on movin on.

    I'm not sure why he called out the US fans. I don't think Morrocco is that much of a draw for fans to spend their money on to attend. Needless to say, to expect a decent crowd when you play Morrocco, you are reaching. I think with what is happening (inflation), fans will have to carefully pick and choose what events they would like to attend.

    Agreed. Good on him to call out the lack of support.

    All being said, sure, it was a friendly, of no consequence, many months away from the World Cup, but certainly in Cincinnati of all places, they could have done better than 2/3 full capacity.
    Morocco fans showed up.

    It's not like your national team plays every week on your soil, let alone even every month. The chance to see THIS team and their world class ability....it should have been full.
    Cincinnati is a clown show and so is FC Cinci......

    I know, I know, club over country....sure...but it's a World Cup year....they qualified.....they are the most promising group of young talent the US has ever seen.
    Show up for them! No excuse.

    The interweb said, most people who can afford to go to these games had to go to work on a Wednesday, sooo...it was a fair point.

    Did not see the Uruguay game so not much comment, other than hearing it was maybe 1 or 2 guys from the Uruguay squad that swept aside Mexico. Still though, I guess no loss is no loss?

    ^^ add to that Mexico scored no goals once again yesterday.
    Let's hope Tata keeps being stubborn, and Chicha does not get the call up.

    Club over country!!!

    G's up!

    So I've been avoiding the interweb today because I haven't watched the final episode of "Saul" but a click bait article said there was a leak of the USMNT uni.

    My favorite comment: "Bring back the Waldo "(with this image).

    AND I'M HERE FOR IT! (is that alexi lalas covering his face?)
