"U.S. Soccer had substantiated its argument that the women's team had actually earned more "on both a cumulative and an average per-game basis" than the men's team during the years at issue in the lawsuit"

Lol. Math.

Math kills the equal pay argument every time you peel away the layers. Like literally every time.

Has me a little curious. Since the judge confirmed the woman were actually paid more than the men will there be a lawsuit now filed by the men for equal pay?

Menís pay is bonus heavy, they donít get the same benefits and their overall tournament play generated more money, though they earned a lower percentage of the overall pot.

Lawsuit was tossed because the womenís team was offered similar structure to the menís collective bargaining agreement but opted against it. They preferred better base pay, benefits and lower bonus pay. Effectively they argued they should have been paid more like the menís team was, even though they had previously turned down a CBA structured in that manner. Judge argued you canít sue to get the benefits of something youíve previously rejected during the CBA process.

Are WNBA players paid less because they're not as good or becuause there arent any real ratings and sponsors? In the same vein or male strippers paid less because they aren't as good as female strippers or because there is just less demand for the product?

Supply and demand doesn't discriminate.
Contract negotiation is give and take (unless your a government union) so don't try to be a weasel agree to one terms and sue to get the part you gave away.

That appears to be the moral of this story.
