Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

It is so shaky I will bet on it, will you?  :)
Why did I think you would only address the second part of my comment? :)
But yes, I'd bet that the proof is a bad proof, who makes more revenue I have no idea. It's possible the women.

The second part of your comment deals with FIFA. I told you the beef is with USSF. Don't try and pull a Trump.
I simple Google search will tell you generates more revenue. You think you are going to see any Nike adds for the USMNT?  :P
You want to discuss tennis or volleyball?  :)

Cross-posting this article. The revenue question is not so simple. And the fact that they want to re-negotiate when it's convenient for them...what if they started making less money, and the USSF wanted to renegotiate their contract in the other direction?

ETA: I hate to bring in facts with discussions with you but: U.S. womenís soccer games have generated more revenue than U.S. menís games over the past three years. Thatís according to audited financial statements from the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) obtained by The Wall Street Journal. In 2016, womenís games generated $1.9 million more in revenue than menís games. From 2016 to 2018, womenís games generated approximately $50.8 million in revenue, compared with $49.9 million for menís games.
According to this the men made $1 million more than the ladies from 2017-2018

Except that the money to pay the USMNT and USWNT comes from the World Cup where the men's side makes more.

USWNT generates more revenue than the USMNT. Women's soccer does not generate anywhere near the revenue men's soccer generates.

To be fair, how many people who really love football watch women's leagues or world cup compared to the men's teams? The skills and level are not in the same league. I am not discriminating against women, I love to watch women tennis for e.g, but when it comes to football it is nowhere close to watching MU or Barcelona etc
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.
Pele Good,Maradona Better, George Best.

You do realize that the men missed the last WC, and therefore brought in no money WC money, right?

One thing that's clear from that article (at least to me), even if the WSJ decided to be diplomatic about it: sponsorships are the largest source of revenue, and it's the women's side driving all of the growth there.
