Men's Sports vs. Women's Sports
Miaya and Aaron

Women's and Men's Sports make equal amounts of money.
Rebuttal: Women's and Men's sports do not make the same amount of money because men's sports attract more fans and money compared women's sports.
Evidence that supports our claim.
According to an ESPN titled, "Title IX puts schools in conundrum" NCAA revenue for Men's sports amounted to a median of $22.2 million and the median for women's sports was just $865,000.
Women's and Men's professional salaries are equal.
Rebuttal: Women do not make the same amount as men professionally because Men's sports draw in more revenue.

Evidence that supports our claim.
According to the United States Sports Academy and their article,"The pay gap between Men's and Women's sports lives on 40 years after Title IX." For Division I basketball, the median salary for coaches of a men’s team in 2010 was $329,300, nearly twice that of coaches for women’s teams, who had a median of $171,600.
Women's sport and Men's sports are equally televised.
Rebuttal: Both sports are not equally televised. Men's sports are a lot more televised than women's sports and there is evidence to support this. Coverage of women's sports has dropped significantly.
Evidence that supports our claim.
According to an article written by Michael Messner and published by the Huffington Post, " From a high of 9% of airtime devoted to the feats of women athletes in 1999, the coverage plummeted to a measly 1.6% in 2009." His article supports are claim that women's sports are unequally televised compared to men's sports.
What we think.
We believe that women and men sports are unequally represented in many aspects. Salaries, fans, and exposure between both genders are completely different. Although it is unfair the relationship will most likely be hard to reverse.
