I'm outraged that the DCCC would consider this as a marketing ploy. The pay of professional athletes is ENTIRELY marketing-related. The Yankees pay based on the draw an athlete creates. Period. The women's soccer team was extraordinary ... so were the performances of our Olympic athletes. Meanwhile, world soccer is very much like baseball in the US. Players get paid for their ability to draw an audience, the corporation to receive the benefit and to write a paycheck. Nothing to do with equal pay for equal effort.
