Again, what do you think the talent of the WNBA equals to men?
 
And why is there such a dropoff? I think, quite honestly, a good division I highschool JV team can take a WNBA team. Agree?


PS: Thanks OSA for the PMS deletion.

Cause its more of a sexest issue, I think people have in there minds women will and can never have the talent that men athletes have. IMO thats wrong cause some Women have some great talent but no one gets to see it because they wont give it the time of day.

Also I think if the WNBA got more pubilicity, and if people just gave it a chance I think it could grow more and more every year.

Another thing I some High school teams could take some WNBA teams, just because the women would be playing bigger and stonger athletes.

...I would come to a conclusion that is not a matter of being sexist, just a matter of being a different sex.

It's definitely not a sexist issue, let's get that straight from the get-go.

I don't know....not to be sexist but most men are stronger, faster

now there are always exceptions..


but the general trend among populations is that men are usually taller, stronger, and faster than women are.



do not read this as sexist, because there are always exceptions. i mean you can have fat short guys and lean athletic women. no contest there


but if you line up every single man and woman in the world and rank them by descending fitness, the highest ranking males outclass the highest ranking females.

Women should be outlawed from playing basketball. You couldn't pay me to watch a WNBA game, they're horrible.
