Women's Soccer Equal Pay Claims Are Not a Slam Dunk

Last week some leading women's soccer players made claims against the U.S. Soccer Federation for pay equal to that received by the male soccer players. Although the women have distinguished themselves in recent competition and have outperformed the men financially in the past year, there is precedent that is troublesome for the women. Also a longer-term view of the finances is quite different from what has happened in the past year. Manatt sports law practice group chair Ron Katz comments on the situation in Forbes.com:
