Women Still Being Left Out Of FIFA Games, This Bullshizz Needs To Stop!

Filed under: Tech TalkSad SadSoccer

fifa womens soccer no girls again 2014 sad awful

It's insane to us that in 2013 that anybody still need to be fighting for rights — be it little or small! It's BULLSHIZZ!

Not only are lady gamers constantly fighting sexism, but badass women (or women at all) are severely under-represented in the games themselves. If they ARE there, then they have massive boobs and outfits that don't make any kind of sense!

Luckily, things are changing… but slowly.

U.S. Women's Soccer Player Punched In The Face!

Filed under: InjurySoccerOlympics

That's awful!

U.S. women's soccer player Abby Wambach got punched right in the face!

When the U.S. was playing Columbia, Columbian player Lady Andrade apparently "sucker-punched" Wambach right in the face.

Wambach said the punch caught her in her right eye.

The U.S. asked FIFA to investigate and even though no formal complaint was made, Andrade was suspended for the next two games.

Hopefully Wambach feels better and her vision isn't affected!

We need that gold!

USA! USA! USA!

Fox And Telemundo Break Out The Check Book For World Cup Rights

Filed under: TV NewsSoccer

Fox Telemundo Soccer

Quick, how much do you think Fox and Telemundo paid to have the rights and Spanish language rights for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup?

If you said anything other than a BILLION dollars, you're wrong.

Fox shelled out $425 million, Telemundo paid $600 million.

But not only does Fox get the World Cup, it gets everything including, "all FIFA events from 2015-2022. That includes the women’s World Cup, as well as the under-20 and under-17 national team competitions."

Our question is — is it worth it?

For Fox and Telemundo it had better be — can't be going around blowing that kind of cash!

FOX Nabs Rights To 2018, 2022 World Cup Telecast

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness BlitzSoccer

world cup

FOX Sports has beat out ESPN for the rights to televise the 2018 and 2022 FIFA soccer World Cup!

Despite losing the rights to broadcast all English-language FIFA events from 2015 through 2022, including the rights to the women's World Cup in 2015 and 2019, the Disney-owned sports network is still committed to soccer, saying:

"ESPN remains committed to presenting the sport of soccer at the highest level across our platforms with coverage of the UEFA European Football Championship, English Premier League, La Liga, MLS and other top leagues and tournaments, including the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.”

ESPN shouldn't feel to bad for losing the bidding war though. The network can still look forward to insane ratings and money from the 2014 World Cup!

If FOX Sports is anything like their "fair and balanced" counterpart, FOX News, we're sure they will find a way to make sure America looks like a winner in 2018 — regardless of the final score.
