Five members of the U.S. women's national soccer team -- including Hope Solo, Carli Lloyd and Alex Morgan -- have filed on behalf of the entire team a wage-discrimination action against the U.S. Soccer Federation with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

    The filing, citing figures from the USSF's 2015 financial report, says that despite the women's team generating nearly $20 million more revenue last year than the U.S. men's team, the women are paid almost four times less.

It appears they have a case. I haven't investigated the $20 million claim, but there are several factors at play: one, the women's team is much, much more successful than the men's team; two, I am nearly positive the men's team still generates way more eyes-on-TVs. What exactly that means for "revenue" -- no idea.

I forgot how to spell the girlski tag.
