You are pretty much just saying that women are weak and have no place with the big boys.
You know nothing about soccer.

I am convinced this is a wind up. You are not this stupid.

I am actually for intergender sports. It will put a stop to the silly idea that women can compete with men athletically. Nobody can complain either because it's completely egalitarian.

I wonder which sport it would matter least in. Golf? Tennis? Baseball?

Yeah, I was gonna say that too. I honestly feel that way about Canada because our men are ****e and women are top 10 in the world. US, not so much.

There are plenty of small and successful male athletes in any given sport especially basketball so size doesn't really matter in b ball as long as you have the skill/talent to match. Adding women to male dominated sports won't take away from all the women players in their league. Especially when as you say they don't have the skill level to compete with men because of their size. There are some women that are larger and can match men point for point.

Yes I don't follow football as much as you do but I do know a few things. Women's US team gets paid far less and has had more victories and championships under their belt. While the Men's team gets paid more while sucking ass. Every world cup they are in they end up getting eliminated quickly. Same goes for Olympics but they do have an awesome ass goalie. Too bad he doesn't have a strong team to back him up.

You just want it so that it can fail like you think it will. If they have the same level or skill/talent. Why can't there be a female version of Lebron.

Physical size would matter less in most team sports and all of the ones tha you listed.
The only sport where physical size would truly matter would be something like Olympic Wrestling. Any sport/competition where there is a one on one test of strength possibly but on the other hand there are female body builders that would be able to toss some wrestlers

Do you even follow the US Olympic teams at all? I don't think you do.

You're missing the point by like, a huge margin. The competition on the men's side isn't even comparable to the women's.

That might be the current case but we both don't know how well an all female team would do against an all male team.

Besides that point to your other post.
US women's team is ranked number 1 in the world while Canada is at 5 and you think Canada's women can do better than their men's team but the US women cant? GTFO

Deej they have had success in women's competitions. If you want to make a point about success you need to have the women's team play in the same competition.

Also don't move the goalposts. I don't care about wages and that's not your argument.
