Following their repeat World Cup win in Lyon, France, the team was celebrating on the field and posing for photos when Long dropped the flag she was holding. She and Rapinoe then stepped forward, leaving the flag underfoot. They continued to pose for the cameras as one of their teammates rushed forward to grab the flag.
But these two athletes can’t be a clear example of what our country has because a number of American athletes have gone above and beyond to show respect for the national anthem and the country’s flag they represent.
But it is what it is people seem to give damn about what Meghan Rapinoe has to say!
They demanded equal pay with the men’s national team and it seems that they are the one that

Now U.S. Soccer Federation president Carlos Cordeiro hit back hard at the women’s national team, he is claiming they actually lose money.
Cordeiro issued a statement challenging the narrative that players on the women’s team are
“Over the past decade, U.S. Soccer has paid our Women’s National Team more than our Men’s National Team,” a USSF fact sheet read. “From 2010 through 2018, U.S. Soccer paid our women $34.1 million in salaries and game bonuses and we paid our men $26.4 million—not counting the significant additional value of various benefits that our women’s players receive but which our men do not.”
It seems that they operate with loss every year:
From 2009 through 2019—a timeframe that includes two Women’s World Cup championships—the Women’s National Team has earned gross revenue of $101.3 million over 238 games, for an average of $425,446 per game and the Men’s National Team has earned gross revenue of $185.7 million over 191 games, for an average of $972,147 per game. More specifically, WNT games have generated a net profit (ticket revenues minus event expenses) in only two years (2016 and 2017). Across the entire 11-year period, WNT games generated a net loss of $27.5 million.”
If the women’s national team has actually lost money since 2009, then I don’t even know why we’re having this debate. Sports leagues and teams aren’t paid simply by how much they win. It’s called basic economics you have to generate more revenue in order to get more money.
