Women's National Team Wears Shirts Inside Out, Hiding US Soccer Crest In Protest (Watch)

Disrespecting America has become a common trend in sports in the Trump era. Far too many athletes just don’t understand the dangers of policies preached by the far-left.

Here’s yet another ridiculous stunt courtesy of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer team, via Daily Wire:

While the national anthem was being played before the SheBelieves Women’s Soccer tournament final between the U.S. women’s soccer team and Japan, the women on the U.S. team protested against U.S. Soccer by turning their warm-up tops inside out, hiding the U.S. Soccer crest, as a show of “solidarity.”

Fox News noted that a court filing from the U.S. Soccer Federation described female players as less skilled than men, arguing that the claim was “indisputable science” rather than “a sexist stereotype.”

NBC News has more:

Women’s national team players are paid differently because they specifically asked for and negotiated a completely different contract than the men’s national team, despite being offered, and rejecting, a similar pay-to-play agreement during the past negotiations. Their preference was a contract that provides significant additional benefits that the men’s national team does not have, including guaranteed annual salaries, medical and dental insurance, paid child-care assistance, paid pregnancy and parental leave, severance benefits, salary continuation during periods of injury, access to a retirement plan, multiple bonuses and more.

The U.S. men’s national soccer team earns more than the women’s team for a number of reasons. They attract more people to games, therefore generating higher revenue via sponsorships.

It has nothing to do with winning.
