The WNBA - pondering their existence for 13+ years




Who wants to see a group of homely women running around shooting lay-ups and jump shots? Am I supposed to be amazed that a woman who's 7'1" can dunk a ball with two hands? I don't know a single person who watches or follows the WNBA, the arenas are always less than half full, so how, especially in a recession, can it still be on the air?




I'd rather watch Donkeyball.

Thanks for the insight, Krass, I had no idea the WNBA is funded with NBA profits, but that makes perfect sense. I never see people wearing WNBA jerseys or rushing out to buy a feminine hygiene product because Lisa Lobo says "it's strong enough for a man, but made for a woman." I, too, enjoy watching most women's sports-the aforementioned tennis, most Olympic sports (my right arm is still sore from watching curling), even the occasional round of golf, but when a behind-the-back pass in front of a crowd of 2600 makes Sportscenter's Top Ten, it makes me question the entertainment value of this "professional" sport.

The WNBA was an experiment created by the NBA commissioner David Stern, which was to be funded by the NBA profits until it could stand on it's own two over sized women feet. It never will stand on its own, for all of the reasons you mentioned, and this big bunion: Stern's ego is wrapped up in the WNBA too much for him to fold the organization.

I do not have a problem with women sports and female athletes. In fact, I love to watch women's tennis, not because there are some some hot women on the WTA Tour. Women tend to use more strategy than power, making it more of a chess match which I enjoy watching. As an aside, I would volunteer to be Maria Sharapova's personal toilet, but that's only part of the reason why I watch.

I have more to say, but now I need to go find some pictures of Maria right now.

i'm not a fan of the WNBA, but watching donkey balls doesn't sound any more appealing...

I thought they had done away with that a long time ago? Any idea what kind of salaries these lady giants are pulling in?
