should female athletes get the same privilege as males to receive the same amount of pay is unfair to everyone else, girls spend just as much time and effort in their sport and training as males do so they should not be underestimated on their skill so it shouldn't"t affect their prize money?

So I think the main resolution is 'Girls should make the same as guys in sports". Good luck Pro. Pro's main argument is effort. When it comes to money and value, effort is not always a factor. The main reason though that women are not paid as much is because of popularity. Think of it from a business perspective. If women get paid more and the same amount of people are coming to games and buying merchandise, the owners will be taking a hit financially. Maybe if they made more money they would pay them more. It is really the same reason why Little league people don't get paid as much as people in the MLB. They might put twice as many effort but that really isn't important when it comes to money. Think about buying something from a restaurant and they mess up your order. Should they still be paid for the effort? The answer is no, you do not pay someone for their effort you pay them for their result and the women do not bring as much results and popularity to their team.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's entire argument was essentially begging the question. I felt con was able to provide a decent refutation, a decent argument, and defend it right to the end of the debate. Pro's lack of a clear argument and lack of rebuttal were probably the biggest factors in the decision, but I'll award conduct for the tons of forfeits.
