Listen: Soccer, Meghan Regino, Kristen discussed on Sports? with Katie Nolan
"U._s._f. Including its board of directors and president carlos cordeiro fully intend to continue to compensate women players less than men they will not succeed we want all all of our fans sponsors peers around the world and women everywhere to know we are undaunted and we'll eagerly look forward to a jury trial which you know. I don't think anybody eagerly more into the court but i get what she's saying. It's that we're not backing down and we're going to look at the facts together because this is a debate that has been going on without a lot of facts because you can't reveal your sides position addition right because that's not good tactics u._s._f. Also put out a statement which i'll read some of here <hes> quote we have said numerous times at our goals to find a resolution enduring mediation when we had hoped we would be able to address the issues and respectful manner and reach an agreement unfortunately instead of allowing mediation to proceed in a considerate manner plaintiff's counsel took an aggressive and ultimately unproductive approach that follows months presenting misleading information to the public in an effort to perpetuate confusion end quote <hes>. I'll just say on a personal level. Oh i don't appreciate the use of respectful and considerate in that statement kind of makes it sound like the women asking for what they want are being rude and doing so. I don't think that's entirely necessary assery and also saying that they're presenting misleading information to the public in an effort to perpetuate confusion could be something that you said about u._s. Soccer given that a month or so ago ago they put out a earning statement or whatever it was the fact sheet basically alleged thanks to the headline they gave it that they pay women more than they pay men and which once it was broken down by everyone in the media and also the men's soccer team who put out their own statement <hes> is not true and was lacking a ton of facts facts and numbers so i think what we've found with this whole situation as sick as we are talking about it. We're also it's our job and and it's a fight that's ongoing than what we've learned learned is that what's lacking in the public. Conversation is like the info the actual info right not the info in a sense. That's like here's how i'm going to use these. He's numbers to benefit my argument and here's how i'm going to change those numbers or omit those other numbers to make my point like i i think the good of the jury trial will be that we will get all the information on both sides and then <hes> suppose like an impartial group will be able to take that information and decide what to do because this is complicated. No one wants to get in the weeds of reading the two different. C._b._a.'s because as a reminder the men's team and women's team have two different collective bargaining agreements with you as soccer and the women are paid a a base salary whereas the men are paid per game and the women have maternity leave and the don't so like there's things that are different and it's comparing apples to oranges and it always brings out of the woodwork those people who are just like nobody watches the women. Let's just always those same. It's the same argument with every women's sport when women ask for more money they get told hold. They don't deserve what the men make 'cause. They don't bring in as much stuff like that's. I think we need to find out what is were arguing. What it is is being fought so that we can you can win because right now. It's just a a bunch of people who don't have information yelling at each other which is a blast and having some fun. It's been such a fun story to follow also like colin coward show so what you're saying is you are eagerly awaiting. This jury trial like like i saw kristen present meghan pino did the today show today. I watched it. Even all the headlines like meghan regino on the today. I show excuse me that one's named kristen press her name. <hes> you know as a person who is i would say if i'm picking a side on the side light of the women i i watched that and i'm like i'm not learning any new information.."
