Here's an example of what the women allege: The top players on the women's team are paid about $72,000 a year by U.S. Soccer, along with bonuses, to play in a minimum of 20 exhibitions per year -- a salary far less than the men, players have a potential to earn $99,000 if they win all 20 exhibitions, while their male counterparts would earn $263,320 for the same feat and U.S. women won the World Cup last year in Canada with a 5-2 victory in the final against Japan. The team earned $2 million for winning the tournament, according to documents. The U.S. men's team conversely earned $9 million the year before at the World Cup in Brazil after going 1-2-1 and losing in the round of 16.

So what do you think? Is it discrimination?
