Megan Rapinoe and Christen Press say the onus is on their employers after mediation talks between the US women’s national team and US Soccer broke down on Wednesday night

Dream on. The talks are sure to fail because the female players aren't living in reality. Men's soccer is boring enough already to American audiences because we want a time crunch or a clear winner, and women's soccer is even less active. Worse, soccer allows ties and has no time limit on ball possession, so a team can take all the time it wants to set up a perfect run on goal or run out the clock passing amongst itself. In stark contrast, basketball has a shot clock, football a play clock, hockey is lightning fast and has 2 min penalties, MMA is a match of 15 to 25 min. Basketball, football, and hockey have OT, MMA has a 3 judge decision if no TKO.
