"Two significant wins that Cindy parler can have. Now, whether that's enough to make anybody change their vote, I think that still remains to be seen, but Sydney parler cones all about looking forward and talking about, hey, you know, what a good job she did during a pandemic and trying to basically manage the federation's finance and carrying a very difficult period. Calls Cordero saying, hey, this World Cup in May 26th, this opportunity being squandered so that's what we're running a game. I'll tell you one of the differences. Cindy parlor cone will do interviews. Carlos Cordero won't. He did a Q&A with Jeff. He never responded to our request to come on football America as you saw from one of our colleagues grant wall also tried to reach out to him, couldn't get him on the record, same for our good friends, total soccer show. There's a lot of people that Carlos Cordero is turning down the talk. I don't know if you can want to be president of something when you want to hide in the shadows. All right, let's get down to brass tacks. You and I were in Orlando. Jeff, for the last one of these. And I think we did a podcast just before and you might have gotten it right. I definitely got wrong who I thought was going to win. Who do you think is going to win this time around? Oh, I mean, everybody I've talked to, you know, that I've said, hey, how do you handicap this election? All anyone will say is that it's going to be close. You know, I think Cordero's got like a built in 36, 40% of the vote constituency there. And so I think a lot of it's going to depend on the athletes council. I think Cindy Paulo cone will probably just shade it, but I mean, this is one of those proverbial elections that can go either way. And I mean, it's going to be fascinating to see how people line up and what candidate they line up behind. But again, we'll know more on Saturday. And it's going to be, especially of Cordero wins. I mean, if he comes back into office, it's going to be interesting to see how sponsors react. It's going to be interesting to see how the women's national team reacts. I mean, they have this settlement, but certainly at least in their public comments, they don't have too many good things to say about Carlos Cordero. All eyes then on Atlanta this weekend as we get to find out who will be the next president of U.S. soccer. There he is, Jeff Carlisle, check out his work.

"Agreement that they thought they had. The men's union had agreed with will Wilson on a particular deal. And then when it was presented to the board of directors, the board of directors said no. We're not going to agree to this deal, and that's created a little bit of ill will on the men's side. So ultimately, I don't think the sticking point is going to be sharing the World Cup revenue, but it's going to be, you know, can the men agree to these terms that they thought they had last summer. So that's a little bit of a tricky dynamic, I think. And again, we'll see what gets agreed to, but the women's deal, as well as the men's deal. Jeff, what's taken so long, you said that last June they agreed and they thought they had something in hand. What's taking so long? Well, I mean, the deal got pulled off the table. And that left a lot of bitterness and a lot of unhappiness on the part of the men's union. Again, the union leadership agree to deal or thought they had agreed to deal with will Wilson. They thought that he was going to be the decision to make her that was going to agree to this particular deal. But then when it got presented to the board of directors, they said no. So I think there's a little bit of confusion and a lack of trust I would say on the men's side, just in terms of, well, if we agree to a deal again, who's to say that the board isn't going to turn their backs on that deal as well. So I think there's been a real breakdown in trust. There was talk of them going on strike. Obviously that didn't happen, but that was a real setback in terms of the men's CBA. And obviously, that's had a little bit of a cascade effect in terms of the women's CBA and trying to come to some kind of agreement on these World Cup bonuses. Jeff, let's get into this presidential election. We got the incumbent Cindy parlow cone and the person that she replaced. Carlos Cordero going head head as you mentioned at this coming Saturday at the AGM for U.S. soccer down in Atlanta. Let's start with a very basic question about this election because I don't feel like a lot of people know this. Who actually votes and where is the power kind of the deciding power and all this concentrate? Because we keep hearing a lot about the athletes council. Yeah, there's four main constituencies. There's the youth state associations. There's the adult amateur state associations. There's what's called the pro council, which includes NWSL, USL, MLS, and then there's the athletes council. And there was some legislation passed the congressional level last year that required the athletes to have one third of the vote in any kind of National Council or on the board of directors. And so some changes have been made in terms of the voting structure and the makeup of the board of directors in the USSF to make sure they abide by that particular legislation. That particular law that's now been passed. So right now, the bulk of the power lies with the athletes council. Again, that's 33 and a third percent of the weighted vote that they're going to be able to wield. In the past, the athletes council has tended to vote as a block where they decide this is the candidate we're going to get behind, you know, this is the person that we're going to throw our lot in with in four years ago, that was Carlos Cordero. But a year ago in the vice presidential election, that was the first sign that maybe the athletes council wasn't going to vote as a block going forward. They didn't on that hearing is that. It's not going to be entirely as a block this time. There have been some public statements from Danielle slate from Lori Lindsay, saying they're backing Cindy parlo cone, but whether the rest of the athletes council is going to fall in line with that or agree with that. That still remains to be seen. I'm told that there's some meetings taking place later this week to try to hash that out and see if they are going to vote as a block or if they're going to allow people to kind of go their separate ways. Jeff, you're one of the few reporters who has actually been able to make contact with both candidates. What are the few of the key differences between both? I'm sorry I didn't catch that. I said, you're one of the few reporters who's actually been able to make contact with both candidates. What are the few key differences between the both between both candidates, excuse me? Well, if you talk to Carl's Cordero, you know, he's basically saying, hey, the grassroots people at the state associations for both the adult.

"This is something that correct me quite wrong. I think you've been a proponent of in the past. So what's your reaction to this news? Well, U.S. soccer is making it very clear in Cindy parlor co and the president put out a letter saying such that look, this is our path forward is we are going with equal contracts and that includes FIFA World Cup prize money. They do not want to do a negotiation or CBA that doesn't include that. And they've made that very clear for months now. She also put in there a little jab at the men's team of, hey, and we need you all, as you said, you want this. You're all for equal pay. Then get to the table and make it happen. Meaning she wants players to be part of that process. And from my understanding, there hasn't been a ton of engagement on the men's side in terms of player involvement. And I think that's going to be the sticking point, obviously, is that chunk of FIFA money? I have made the argument that yes, of course, for the men's teams, because FIFA argues that, yes, the men's world cups and events bring in more money. They're going to give more to the men. The women argue, listen, because a systemic discrimination, it's not our fault that you haven't been promoting the women's side of the game for decades and decades had you been we'd be making more money. You could also argue that the U.S. women's team brings in more on the sponsorship side because of their popularity and their success at the international level. So I think if you put it all into the pot split it evenly. And you can get both. That's the challenge. Both teams at the table. And that's what they're saying. They want to get there. I think that's going to be the path forward. And the U.S. soccer is saying that will only be the past four. They do not want to sign a contract that's not equal. Well, they say equal, but cynical and also said, equal pay doesn't mean equal. So there's a big difference there that could be a percentage of which from my understanding the women do not want. And also, by the way, the men haven't had an active CVA since 2018. They've been practicing plane working without a CBA since 2018. So there are a lot of there are a lot of different things going on right now at the helm of these discussions. But the most important thing is, U.S. soccer is taking everything out of their own hands and putting in to the player's hands. You and the men, the women and the men figure it out, type of deal, which is almost a tricky place to be on if you're on either side of the table. I think you're right. It is a tricky place to be at. But I think that there is a solution forward. And I just think that finally they need to go to a place where everyone's supporting the other team. If the men does well, do well, the women do well. If the women do well, the men share in that. And we can go as we've talked about for so long one nation one team, which really hasn't been. There's been a lot of infighting in that. Then this is the solution forward. And I hope the players can help them get there. Julie, one more thing on the federation docket. We've got the presidential elections coming up. We've been talking about it a lot on this show. I have to get your opinion here because you were on the air with me in the she believes cup at the beginning of 2020 when I had to read that statement from Carlos Cordero and what 24 48 hours later he resigned as president of U.S. soccer. I wonder what you make of Cordero now entering the race for this year's presidency. Yeah, sevi, I was shocked, honestly. I mean, he resigned on embarrassing terms in terms of he says, look, I didn't know that U.S. soccer was going to use that language in the lawsuit in apologize for it. Had I seen it? And look, this is argument that had been made for months in deposition. So I think I said it that night on air. I don't buy that. Because they were well aware that that was going to be the argument that men are better physically as players and stronger and faster. Therefore, it's not equal. And so for him to have almost see his arrogance to come back and say, I'm going to be the one that fixes this. And then in his letter to say, because they haven't resolved all these millions of lawsuits. Well, those millions in lawsuits were under his watch and often started under his watch. So Cindy actually, parlo cone has done, I think a very good job of wrapping up the lawsuit. They had with U.S. soccer foundation. They got rid of that. She brought in a new CEO. She's changed as we've seen a lot of the culture within the federation. I think they should honor that and let her finish this as a player and as a woman's player who knows how best to get to equal pay. And understands it. And I think she's on the right track to get there. So I shake my head at this. I hope that the athletes council and other members that are voting are going to see that the way forward in all of this right now, I think is Sunday, but I just think it's a surprising move by Carlos Cordero, for sure. And I just was, I was blown away when I saw it, honestly. Yeah, it should be a very interesting buildup to the annual governance meeting for U.S. soccer in March in Atlanta. All right, Julie patty, thanks so much for the time. Great to have you with us here on football. Thanks guys. Thanks, Julie. One more thing before we get out of here. History or even Peralta who just turned 38 yesterday.
