And when 90 thousand turn up for a women's game at the G, they have something to complain about, but until then.....

Or my favourite response to that point is to ask - What's Australia's leading male netballer get paid?

The girls are getting shafted. Look at our soccer team, just beat Brazil in a final 6-1 and they get peanuts for it. Why can't the girls start @ 100K, it will get more interested.

The best thing the girls can do to increase their pay-packets is to win things. This will attract sponsors and TV ratings and thereby, commensurately, increase their bargaining power.

The Australian men's football (soccer) team is a perfect case study in why this is the case. Before they qualified for the World Cup, in 2006, the Aussie men also got paid an absolute pittance for each game they played for Australia. When they qualified the public interest in the World Cup went through the roof and as did Socceroos' TV ratings, over the next 11 years they have progressively been paid more and more because their bargaining power has increased.

The girls will get there, but if they force it too hard they will make their competitions too expensive to run and become dependent on the men's game to fund them, then if the men's game interest slumps the whole thing will collapse.

They are already dependent on the men's game - just like the WNBA.
