    Not sure where conversations about the whole "equal pay for women in sports" thing belongs, but I think we have talked about it in here because Megan Rapinoe is at the forefront of the discussion. Either way, this article caught my eye:

    I don't really understand what the complaint is, with regards to the NBA vs. the WNBA. The NBA brings in a shitload more money, so NBA players get paid a shitload more money. What's there to debate?

    I see Rapinoe talking about investment and media coverage. Does she truly believe that's the difference between the NBA and the WNBA? That if we devoted the same amount of money and media coverage to both, the WNBA would be just as popular as the NBA? That stance is absolutely baffling to me.

    Megan Rapinoe might be smart but she doesn’t play it on tv. No offense to her.

    Perhaps a shotgun is also only a yellow card?
