Houston Coments to cease operations
 
Hey look, a WNBA thread!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20081202...usawomencomets

There'll be a draft before the next season to send their players to other teams.

WTF!

I was about to make this thread!

Pacers fans think alike. :cheers:



But seriously, these guys won the first 4 WNBA championships.

Just further goes to show what a joke of a league it is.

What does it say about the rest of the league when one of the original and flagship franchises goes out of business? We already known that the league itself is on shaky ground, and the NBA brother teams have already bailed out on their sister teams, leaving a lot of the franchises to non-NBA ownership.

The Rockets sold off the Comets sometime last year, and going by the fact that the Comets are shutting down means that obviously the new ownership lost a lot of money, and in this current ecomony, it's understandable why.

RIP Houston Comets (1997-2008)

Sigh....shutter the league now. The WNBA without The Comets is not the league that I grew up with. Cynthia Cooper was my grrrrl.

I just read about this a few hours ago. This is most def, some sad news. Like someone already posted. If the Comets, the OGs of the league, fold the WNBA is just not the same.

I am a big fan of the WNBA and I will watch and support it as much as I can. But man, this really hurts. The WNBA will not be the same without the Coments.
