Here's what I heard. The USSF is more than happy to offer ...


the same deal the men received. The USWNT opted for the guarantees instead of the upside dependent on performance. The USSF agreed to pay part of their WUSA salaries as well.

The women now wants the USSF to pay the discrepancy of the winners share of the World Cup between the men and women. The discrepancy is $34mn.

Here's the issue: the USSF does not run the World Cup. It is run by FIFA. Why USWNT is suing USSF is mind boggling. They have no case.

What the USWNT should have done: ask Nike, sponsors, and media partner to push their product further ... perhaps even ask Nike / USSF for a better merchandising deal. The women sell more merchandise than the men. Furthermore, they should have asked the USSF to back them as they sue FIFA for better pay. I have no idea if their deal is unequal to the men. The USWNT's real issue is with FIFA.

The USWNT's lawsuit against the USSF had little merit ... to be kind. Maybe they'll get a small victory in better travel accommodations.
