'Washington Spirit majority owner Steve Baldwin has learned in his first eight months on the job that professional women’s soccer players in the United States should not be paid the same as men. He thinks they should be paid more.

“They are better than the men as athletes,” the 58-year-old D.C.-area tech executive said this week. “This is the best league in the world. We have to change how we sell it, promote and market it. I believe the opportunity is there to where unequal pay is achieved and the women make more.”'
