USWNT members' bid for equal pay reached an impasse during mediation with the U.S. Soccer Federation on Wednesday, but the team's star insists she's still hopeful that the two sides will eventually reach a suitable agreement. "They're the only employer that we could have playing for the national team, we're the only employees that they could have, so for better or for worse we're tethered together," Rapinoe said on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Thursday. "I think that if and when and ever they are willing to have a conversation about equal pay that starts there and goes forward, we're always open to that.
