WNBA: The NBA's Ugly Little Sister

Why is the WNBA everywhere the NBA happens to be?

Too often do I go to NBA.com or official team pages and see things referring to the WNBA, why is this? We know the league exists, ok? Is constantly advertising the WNBA during the NBA playoffs going to get people to watch? No, it's not. Cut it out...NBA fans aren't going to think "Wow, more basketball to watch.", they're thinking "Women's professional basketball, I'll pass."

I don't have a problem with the league itself or the players (I'm sure I'll be labeled a sexist woman-hater), I have a problem with it "tagging along" with the NBA wherever it goes...for example: I subscribe to the NBA Playoffs Video Podcast and as soon as the WNBA season started and there were less NBA games to recap, I started seeing WNBA recaps and discussion...whoa! What part of "NBA" + "playoffs" means WNBA regular season? Maybe if it was called the "Professional Basketball Podcast" or "Funded By NBA Teams Podcast"...I was expecting more time dedicated to each game, not something else entirely.

I don't go to Mark Cuban's blog and tell people to come to my site because if people like his blog then they should go to mine too...cause iyts liek a blog too1!111!!

The WNBA fan base is as big as it's going to get, it doesn't really interest anyone besides female athletes and some casual females and lesbians...maybe people with serious gambling problems watch too, I don't know. For something that is supposed to be appealing for women to watch, no female I know is interested in it, they'd rather watch the NBA.

Congratulations on your 10th season, and a "hello" to whoever your fans are.

The NBA has Jack Nicholson, Billy Crystal and Jay-Z & the WNBA has Rosie O'Donnell

i think the biggest waste of time is women's golf. i mean, my god, what right to they have to play on the links? they don't make the kind of money the men make, they don't hit the ball as far, and every attempt (wie, sorenstam) to compete against men has been a failure.

gotta go, i'm going to call for a tee-time at augusta national...
