Draymond Green and Megan Rapinoe are apparently on the same side.
The two have been seemingly trading shots ever since Green said female athletes need to stop complaining about money and actually do something. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
“I’m really tired of seeing them complain about the lack of pay, b/c they’re doing themselves a disservice by just complaining.”
Today Draymond talked about his Tweets about women’s sports that received criticism from athletes like @mPinoe & @Layshiac @kron4news #DubNation pic.twitter.com/7iUQ982jx9

Of course, he was 100% correct with his comments, but Rapinoe said he showed his “whole ass.” Well, the Golden State Warriors star is now clarifying and wants people to know him and the face of women’s soccer are on the same side.

Green told the media the following Thursday in response to Rapinoe, according to TMZ:
The thing about Green’s initial comments is that you could tell he wasn’t against women making more money. He just wanted to hear actual plans instead of just nonstop talking.
I don’t disagree with him at all. How far as talking gotten female athletes when it comes to getting paid?
US Soccer’s Megan Rapinoe at the White House:
“I’ve been disrespected and dismissed because I am a woman. I’ve been told that I don’t deserve any more than less because I am a woman. Despite all the wins, I’m still paid less than men who do the same job that I do.” pic.twitter.com/QC7N2g4OJp

Of course, there’s also economic realities we have to face, which Green also originally stated. Sports are and should be funded by the revenue they bring in.
The men’s national soccer team from 2015 through 2019 generated nearly $11 million more than the women, according to the Washington Post. If the money isn’t there, then people don’t get paid!
Unfortunately, I’m sure this topic isn’t going away anytime soon. Get used to hearing it because there’s a lot more talk coming!
