This is not true. How much money has been spent on the MLS for it to be 5th or 6th or 7th in men's professional sports. If more women watched, more money would be pumped into the leagues. You think there's a bachelor, bachelorette, bachelor in paradise series because money was just pumped in from the start? No, women had an interest in it, the audience grew, and more money was made from the viewership. Then they started pumping money into it once they realized they had a hit. It's simple, women are not supporting it.
That’s why I feel like they should refocus their efforts instead of stomping their feet and putting the pressure on “gender bias” the “sports industry” they should be putting the pressure on women to watch more.. something that’s actually feasible and could make a difference. They have the platform but the energy is directed the wrong way.

WNBA has been in the red since 95, only reason they are still here is because the NBA funds it. If that was any other business, it would have folded in 98 if that. It’s really not a man vs woman argument, more on the lines of a good product vs a bad product. Numbers don’t lie.

Yup you are still far away from the point...it all comes down to the revenue they bring in from FIFA, from Global Media/Sponsors, from National/local Media/Sponsors.

It's a delicate strategy here....does the chicken or egg come first.

Some argue if women watch more, more money would be pumped into it....another argues, if you pump money, promote and market the game properly, more women and men would watch...you get it.

From a business standpoint, they need to invest money into the game, market/promote the game and the star players, and target the right audience to get the game going....you can't just wait for women to watch the game because obviously that hasn't worked. You need the investment and right promotion/marketing to get people across the board to watch the game....

In 1996, I was a big fan of the inauguration WNBA..Cynthia Cooper was my female MJ and I watched WNBA crazily the first five years. But they marketed the game well then but somewhere down the line they stopped growing the game the way they ought to....

I get that...

the fact remains that they win at the highest level and still get paid pennies on the dollar, that's fu*ked up

and I said in a previous post, I don't think it should be a 1:1 ratio, but they def. should be getting more than they're getting

Again, the MLS has been pumped with money, why does it still rate lower than most sports. If more men watched soccer they would pay more in the MLS. More players would stay in America.

did you not read what she said?

she said if there was more money behind it people would be more interested...

you can't get interest without money being pumped into the leagues...that goes for any sport
I kept reading it but she didn't have a point or any solutions on how they can make more money.
Also who in their right mind, I'm talking about business people would throw more money at a business that's already losing money.

also they make a lot more money in Russia because the quality of basketball is better and plus they don't have many professional sports to compete with.
Imo the solution is simple, they need to find more viewers so they can generate more revenue so they can get more money.

the only way they could get more viewers is if women take an interest in watching the WNBA.

but women would rather watch real housewives of hip Hop or whatever the f*** it is then to watch terrible basketball.

Women’s team chose a salary as compensation; men chose a different sliding scale. The women screwed themselves with that, but it did provide more security. But their ability to earn is stunted unlike the men’s pay options.

Your a dumb bafoon... how much have you spent on the wnba? Let’s see the jerseys and merch. fu*king moron

If they created revenue, their salaries would increase. Most teams are at a net loss.. and you want more expenses? Dumb bafoon

They win games against Thailand and other teams where the level of interest and organization in women's is in its infancy.

If women watched the sh*t the money would flow, just like it does for all those reality TV shows that keep being made for no good reason, besides money flowing...

Woman should be upset at other woman for not walking the talk. The anger and frustration is misdirected, they are basically upset with males because females aren't supporting them outside of a few hashtags.

You don't see g-league or arena football players mad at nba or nfl players for not going to bat for them.

BX sucker simp feminists, tell me how you market a bunch of studs marrying other women and chopping off their t*ts to traditional families and heteros*xual women?

Add on top of that, the low-quality basketball and futbol played.

But they deserve equal and more pay.

I can't speak for other women sports outside of soccer, but the USWNT has been far more successful than the men, and are way more popular and well known here. I agree they deserve to be paid the same as the men, if not more.

Why shouldn't it?

Obviously, the demand in Russia is bigger than the demand in America. It's two completely different markets. The WNBA players in general have chosen to not make their game more watchable, they've chose to wine and cry about it.

Cause if I want more money at my job, I have to either development skills to higher level that could command that salary or do things that makes myself unique and more valuable. That's with any job. The WNBA players in general have done neither.

They think them showing up is the job. Tennis for example, many of the top female players earn more than the male players. Not because they are better, but because they are unique and interesting enough to command that. And notice no male tennis players complain, cause they understand basic economics. Serena, Osaka, etc., they all have something about them that makes them unique to where they can command what they receive. Is a guy like Gael Monfils better than them by miles? Of course. But they have a uniqueness about them that make them household names and Monfils isn't.

Just because you want, wish or would like something to be true, doesn't make it true. At the end of the day, it will come down to the money. People will vote with their a*sets. Cause even women, trans, gay, bi, etc. all vote with their dollars and chose everything, but the WNBA.

You are worth what you are able to negotiate. If you can't negotiate it, then you ain't worth it.

True, but trust and believe that they're gonna make that an issue as well. End of the day they want to get paid and that's fine, issue is that they want close to the same pay as the NBA and that is where the issue lies.

She's the WRONG person to speak on WNBA economics. Her valid points are that right now, women's national team soccer players should get paid more than men because they generate more than men. Anything outside of that, she's just incorrect.
