I haven't followed everything, but both sides had some merit ...

following the facts.

I believe the women / USSF have a CBA in place. That said, the women draw bigger gate receipts than the men and want to be paid accordingly. Unfortunately, the women signed a CBA where I think the USSF subsidizes their WUSA salaries. Basically, the women opted for a fixed income rather than taking a percentage of the gate receipts.

In essence, the women took guaranteed money. I believe the best argument for the women is regarding merchandise sales. They should revise that part of the contract. The women deserve a bigger percentage. Be fair.

As for a bigger Wolrd Cup share, that's on FIFA ... not the USSF. FIFA is corrupt as hell but the USSF doesn't control the World Cup bonus pool. However, the USSF could definitely do a better job supporting the women.

I believe Cordeiro went into biological difference between men and women for some reason ... as well as the idea that men faced more hostile crowds than women. It was utter nonsense. I understand why the women were so angry.

Arbitration usually gets ugly. However, Cordeiro took nonsensical positions that were somewhat offensive. His resignation was justified.
