Pretty good experienced/newer player mix here. Media call with Vlatko Andonovski today around noon ET, so more on his perspective on #USWNT January training camp soon.
Re: injuries: Vlatko says Sauerbrunn had "a little setback that did not allow her to properly get ready and prepare physically for this camp" so he and medical staff decided not to call her in this time. Alyssa Naeher has recovered well and "she's ready to step in." #USWNT
Q from @thegoalkeeper about filling a 9 role: Vlatko rattles off Sophia Smith, Cat Macario, and Ashley Hatch as candidates if they play a formation with a 9. #USWNT

A few days ago #LFGthemovie was released. This movie shows us the process of the #EqualPay lawsuit that the @USWNT encounter against @ussoccer
It explains how much it takes to do something like this.
Here s a #Thread to explain what happened
In March 2019 During the #USWNT camps the captains did do a secret meeting with the team and they proposed to make a lawsuit against their federation for Equalpay. That's how it started and on the 8th of March 2019 they released a statement.
They are asking for #EqualPay and also
Equal opportunities with better marketing,more training resources etc.
And the facts are surreal:
So the #USWNT get paid 0$ for advancing in the #WorldCup even if they make it to the Semi finals
They don't take any charters and the hostels are nothing compared to the men.

Indeed...and this goes to my big problem with the #USWNT lawsuit from the start; it was a dishonest money grab, hiding behind “wokeness”

As I am someone who is generally FOR employees getting more money (it’s kinda my job), allow me to explain...
I represent a lot of police and fire unions, including ones in the same municipality. In many cases, there is a “parity” clause in the CBA-if one public safety gets an increase in wages and benefits, it automatically goes to the other
(Note: before you get worked up, employers in association bargaining situations have something similar: a “most favored nations” clause)

The initial intent behind parity clauses was to keep the employer fair and honest, and insulate one group from political favoritism etc.

11:41 p.m. ET, and away we go.

First up, #USWNT players opposition to U.S. Soccer's motion for summary judgement.
First section has six points of rebuttal — including ones against the equal work concept, and also FIFA prize money determining #equalpay. #USWNT
It's a lot of the same arguments we've already seen before — especially in the February filings asking for summary judgments, just tweaked as a response, which makes sense.

Pushing back here against the concept that the #USWNT and #USMNT are "operationally distinct."

This is important: I hope more male footballers join @EkdalAlbin to make the sport less homophobic and more supportive of male players to come out. #LGBTQ #Pride 🏳️‍🌈 h/t @Kibalcic
t bears remembering that the women’s game has a history of openly gay players that the men’s game has yet to catch up with, as I mention here… #LGBTQ 🏳️‍🌈
And here’s a thread I posted after the women’s World Cup that looks into the stark difference in the # of openly gay/bi players in the women’s game vs the men’s #LGBTQ

I just rode my bike by City Hall where the clean up is underway, but glory is in thr air. What a great day for women athletes, for young girls who want to play with all their hearts. #USWNT simply the best. Better than all the rest.…
Just want to say I’ve not seen so many girls with their moms, aunts, cousins walking around lower Manhattan with wide grins. #USWNTParade has brought immense crowds and lifted innumerable spirits!
This was the #July4th parade America really needed, down Broadway’s Canyon of Heroes and Heroines with a million people along the way, cheering, screaming, feeling the power of women who play to win.…

In the past couple hours Donald Trump has posted three tweets congratulating himself for various things, yet he still hasn’t congratulated the #USWNT for winning the championship. We all know it’s because the team’s stars don’t like him. He’s the definition of a sore loser.
Five minutes after I posted this, Trump suddenly tweeted out congratulations to the team. Funny how that works.
Donald Trump just totally botched the Team USA women’s soccer victory…

Live tweeting this game in the spirit of my analysis of the Grammys and Oscars (generally I focus on minor issues/gossip that cater to a small subset of followers but show an overall appreciation for the entire enterprise). Also I have a favorite team this time. #USWNT 1/
The Dutch are also a good looking people. 2/
They also seem really tall. 3/

Totally winning the best-dressed award at the #FIFAWWC2019 final here in #Lyon: Justin and Sarah McCarty and 7 yo daughter Ella of Chicago, with sister/sister-in-law Becca Perry. #USANED #USWNT Image
The streak is broken: #USWNT had scored in the first 12 minutes in all 6 of its previous #FIFAWWC2019 games. But it’s halftime in the final match: still no score. #USA 0 - #NED 0. #USANED Image
Game time temperature: stifling. #USANED #FIFAWWC Image

Twitter sent me a notice this morning about a post that had offended some users.

In response, Twitter told me they were marking the offending tweet “sensitive” so no one would come upon it without warning and be shocked by my message.

My content was THAT upsetting.

The tweet in question...

The one Twitter marked as “sensitive”...

The one people were upset about and Twitter censored...

It was this one. For real. This one. About Megan Rapinoe.

Hey Twitter, your algorithm sucks. Your moderation sucks. Your censorship sucks.

You know who doesn’t suck?

Megan Rapinoe. AKA @mPinoe.

She’s a purple-haired lesbian goddess of American soccer.

Don’t censor genius. Celebrate it.

This is the best headline you will see today, I guarantee it.
Women athletes don't have to do anything but be athletes
And objects of adoration.

On #MeganRapinoe: "An essential rebel: a defiant woman refusing to play by the antiquated be-cute-and-courteous rules that make many men feel better about female athletes."…

I'm sitting at the USA-Curacao soccer match next to a severely inebriated gentleman from Bethlehem, PA. I think, I am going to live tweet his ramblings. Any objections?
He has made at least a dozen attempts to pronounce my name.
"Is it OK if I call you Slav?"
"I mean, you are almost there, man. Just one more sound."
He tries, fails, then settles on the entirely different approach and attempts to call me Slavan.
2 minutes later, he's forgotten it
He has just welcomed me to America. I have told him I've lived here for 28 years. Which is only 5 years less than he.
"So, wait, you came here during the Gulf War Era?"
I didn't know it was an era.

I really don’t enjoy matches that are just goal galore against an underdog. There is no joy or beauty or anything to be gained #USATHA #FIFAWWC
That was a horrible display - absolutely no reason for players of such stature in #USWNT to be acting like that over 9th, 10th, 11th goal. And I say that as a feminist who says YES YOU DESERVE ATTENTION YES BE BOLD AND HAVE EGO. Come on. That was awful. #USATHA #FIFAWWC
And thing is the #USWNT is fighting for equal pay & resources with their country’s men’s team. And for inequalities at play there, same & more exist with #THA vs #USA. If US women’s team are denied equal pay & resources, imagine the obstacles that Thai women’s team fave #FIFAWWC

We all get older. It’s an unavoidable fact. Sports fans are no exception. We grow up and we grow old. Unfortunately, so do our heroes. The life of a sports fan, measured by their heroes, has a few major milestones that mark our cycle. #mlb #nba #nfl #nhl #wnba #usmnt #uswnt 1/17
#1 - Establishing a Hero
Think back: Once you were the starry-eyed child. You watched on the television or, hopefully, someone took you to a game. There you were amazed by what that one guy or girl did. How can he run so fast? Did you see that pass? 2/17
Someone did something that made you take notice. You were amazed, in awe. Maybe it was Sandy Koufax's control, Mike Schmidt's power, Walter Payton's finesse, or Sue Bird's control of the court. Something made you become a sports fan and you wouldn't want that to change. 3/17
