“Sorry-ass f*cking men from the US soccer team ain’t ever won sh*t, ain’t gonna ever win sh*t, can’t even get out of the f*cking first round.
“Pay them ladies man, pay them girls what they’re worth. The women should be getting $500,000 per athlete, Snoop Dogg says so. Them girls won four World Cups, and $90,000? Man, please.”
“Pay them $500K per player – Snoop Dogg says so,”

Megan Rapinoe and her great work
The captain of the USA Women soccer team Megan Rapinoe is a lesbian. It was her incredible performance which took the team to a tremendous win. Megan had earlier called for the conversations for equal pay for the USA Women soccer team members to move further to the next stage. She had said:
“I think everyone is ready for this conversation to move to the next step. I think we’re done with, ‘Are we worth it, should we have equal pay, is the market the same?’ Yada yada.
“Everyone’s done with that; fans are done with that, players are done with that. In a lot of ways, I think sponsors are done with that.
“Let’s get to the next point. What’s next? How do we support women’s federations and women’s programs around the world? What can Fifa do to do that? What can we do to support the leagues around the world?”
Megan is a great player and performer and a frank and open person.
