Sports Minute: American women hide US Soccer logo during anthem in protest
FRISCO, Texas (AP) - The increasingly bitter dispute between American women's national soccer team and the U.S. Soccer Federation spilled onto the field when players wore their warm-up jerseys inside out in a protest before their 3-1 victory over Japan. Players filed a gender discrimination suit against the USSF, a case scheduled for trial starting May 5 in federal court in Los Angeles. The USSF submitted legal papers this week claiming that the women are less skilled and have less-demanding roles than the men on its national team. By wearing jerseys inside out, players hid the USSF crest on the jerseys.
