Oregon forward Sedona Prince recently got a lot of attention from the media after posting a video in which she shows the difference between the weight rooms at the men's and women's NCAA tournament. Prince said there was more than enough room for NCAA to add more equipment and the notion was that they simply didn't care, so everyone started ripping on NCAA and their mistake.

I got something to show y'all. So, for the NCAA March Madness, the biggest tournament in college basketball for women … This is our weight room. Lemme show y'all the men's weight room," she said while the video cuts to the gym at the men's tournament in Indiana.

Prince received a lot of media interest and support from fellow athletes from different sports, and even Stephen Curry, who said the NCAA should've done a better job at providing women the same type of support as men. The general understanding is that the NCAA didn't do a good job at supporting female athletes in the same manner they did the male athletes on this specific occasion.

After numerous positive and uplifting comments by others, Nick Young, a.k.a. Swaggy P happened. Former NBA player, said the NCAA did it because the women athletes are not bringing the same amount of revenue, and they are automatically considered a J.V.team. According to Natalie Weiner from Bleacher Report, Young said women athletes should dress sexier to draw more audience and, therefore, more revenue.

The unbalance between female and male athletes' earnings has been discussed on social media for a while now. More and more people are pushing for the agenda of getting female athletes similar or even the same type of pay as men even though from an economic standpoint, that doesn't make sense, at least not at this stage. Comments like the one Nick Young made are simply a by-product of him being absolutely unapologetic and unaware of an issue that needs addressing with a more careful perspective.
