When the Battlehawks were still alive, I'd hate watch to root against McTattoo.

I don’t know how it stays alive. 

I saw a pic from a bham playoff game and the stands were completely empty.  Literally no one there.

I think it’s a decent product. It’s my opinion that the world has football fatigue once the Super Bowl is over.  We need a mental break.  College and NFL ignites such passion and intensity it’s difficult to transition to an off-season option. 

I intended to watch the game yesterday.  Instead I forgot about it and watched my cousin Vinny instead.

Bueckers also made comments similar, and she's not even in the league yet.

I think there is more pettiness with them being women, though.  Shit, I saw it with my daughter and her high school team, with her own teammates.  Girls who think they deserve more, and will do spiteful things, and don't care if they lose because they don't want the better players to shine.

One of the white players last week, forget her name (Oh hell, I never knew it) was saying all the white players in the WNBA are privileged.  WTH???

You speak of Cameron Brink. 6 feet, 4 inches. From Princeton, NJ. Played college ball at Stanford. Now playing in Los Angeles. Her politics should shock no one. She is one of the straight ones and is on the prettier side though.

The Birmingham Stallions won their third Spring Football championship in a row yesterday in front of (allegedly) 25,000+ in St. Louis, MO. (Subsequently, that's about the same number of crimes committed yesterday in St. Louis.)

On one hand, that's impressive in any league. On the other, how do these things stay afloat?

Good on Skip Holtz, though. He was cast asunder and seems to have found his thing with replacements and never were's.

Now, imagine it's a bunch of hyper competitive women, over half of whom have bought the message that they are oppressed and victims.



There's a lot to this as well.  I've heard more complaints about race, preferential treatment etc. in a couple of months than I have in years.  One of the white players last week, forget her name (Oh hell, I never knew it) was saying all the white players in the WNBA are privileged.  WTH???

I wish no ill will towards the WNBA, and hope it takes off, they get mega TV deals and everybody signs multi-year $25 million contracts. But, it's still going to take some time, and there's going to HAVE to be more superstars like Clark come into the league.  Otherwise, the novelty of CC and Angel Reese will wear off, and people will go back to realizing, it's just not that good of a product.

Don't know if I agree with you.  I'm ok with the hard fouls, but the cheap shots or the non-basketball plays, are crossing the line.  And had you checked Isiah Thomas like some of those fouls Clark has received, I have no doubt that Bill Laimbeer or John Salley would have knocked you on your ass.

Part of this is the aforementioned "welcome to the league, rook" and the other part is a little bit (to a lot bit) of jealousy, which is understandable on some level.

You work hard for a few years at your company. You bust you back to grow it, you even do extra work and no one seems to care. Then, the company hires some fresh, right out of college, rock star employees with a ton of upside who bring the attention to the company, but you only see partial benefit from it. Factor in one of those new people is the antithesis of what the "narrative" wants in new employees, and resentment grows as sure as moss on a stone.

Now, imagine it's a bunch of hyper competitive women, over half of whom have bought the message that they are oppressed and victims.

It's a recipe for harsh treatment.

Finally, this latest thing is nothing more than a hard foul blown out of proportion. Watch the tape. Reese is swinging for the ball, she misses, Clark's midwestern melon is there. Stuff happens. Clark ain't complaining and Reese, like the rest of us, are sick of talking about it.

This is all made up, distraction nonsense.

Every pro sports league has a level of hazing for the rookies. No one noticed the WNBA's before because even the "stars" they've had weren't a part of mainstream. Now they have a couple and the narrative is set in stone that they MUST hate each other. Truth is, neither thinks that much about the other except when they meet on the court. And they play hard. Basketball is a physical sports. Media acting like these women are out there in cotillion dresses on the promenade.

I'm wondering if it's just women in sports in general.  Seems like most of teammates don't give two shits about winning, nor protecting their teammate.
