They demand parity when the reality is they've a fraction of the fan base of the men.

Title IX is a demand made by the federal government as a condition of funding, not a demand made by college women athletes.
Most college athletes have little to do with fan base. The fact that colleges have strayed from their mission to provide educational opportunity (yes sports is an educational opportunity) and turned football and basketball into big business is no reason to kill women's sports.
The mind hungers for that on which it feeds.

A few good news stories from the Olympics:

-the purple haired pu**y eater's team loses to Canada in soccer and will not earn either a gold or silver medal. I am rooting for them to not win the bronze medal.

US edges past Australia 4-3 to win the bronze medal in women’s soccer at the Tokyo Olympics


I enjoy when fleaswatter’s wishes aren’t fulfilled.

Go USA!

Fascinating
When Trumpers follow sports, its all about politics
I'm a huge sports fan. Any political affiliation of any athlete is meaningless to me
There are probably communists and socialists competing. Could care less.
To Trumpers, politics is everything in sports
They need politics in sports to know who to root against. Kind of akin to wrestling

The Olympics is probably the the biggest political event in the world outside of war. Do you really think that countries spend billions just to entertain you?

It’s just funny to see conservatives root against their own country.

We’ve known they hate America for while now...

YES
I'm hugely entertained every 2 years
I'm entertained by the incredible sports competitions
So far most memorable moment
Lydia Jacoby winning gold as her fans in Seward go absolutely nuts.
Its great fun and memorable
Looking forward to tonight as US takes women's pole vault gold after barely qualifying for the final.
I would estimate that 99% of US Olympians could care less about politics

I wish 99% of all people would care less about politics.
