    its simple...the product isnt that a good. women wanna b equal to men, cool, but then u cant cry when u perform at a lower level when ppl compare the 2. reason y the NFL is bigger then the CFL, y the NBA is bigger then the D-League, y MLB is bigger then Triple A, they provide a better product and make more money becuz of it. y should women's sports be held to a different standard as they cry about being equal? they think they should get more when they cant deliver what male sports do, they dont want equality, they want special treatment

    The problem is that women soccer only gains attention every 4 years during World Cup time.

    Nothing like two dudes talking down to women on some “this is what women should do” bs. Here’s an idea: invite a WOMAN expert on your show to discuss this!

    Woman want to see other women doing feminine things, which is why love and hip hop/Real housewives/bad girls club/etc have tons of viewership.They don’t to watch women who walk/talk/model themselves after dudes BUT aren’t athletic/can’t dunk like the men’sIf simple BUISNESS. Now the soccer team may have a point, maybe, if revenue in TOTAL, including sponsorship is more than the men’s league. But the damn WNBA, come one be real. There’s only a handful of women’s sports where the women retain feminist, and soccer is one of them. WNBA/Boxing/MMA are all dominated by manly looking woman

    I would love to sit down with WNBA personnel and I could fix the WNBA Economic problems. There are ways the WNBA can make a profit.

    The two females who should get Equal pay and that's tennis player Serena Williams and female boxers Claressa Shields two times Olympic boxing gold medalist and 5x division title holder.

    Rob's is 100 percent correct and WNBA do not get the support of 45 % of casual women fans support and college and pro football and basketball are winning because of women support and gambling. If the WNBA players were in the NBA working in the NBA in any capacity then they should get what men are making. WNBA has to carry their weight, because the NUMBERS aren't economically making sense. This is basic economics and the math doesn't dictates for you to make that kind. Also women do not want to see women acting like men and that's a serious image problem.

    These 2 are scared of being cancelled and it shows. Especially rob parker, he has to preface everything he says with im not trying to bash womens sports" or "im not saying women dont deserve more" also known as " please dont cancel me fox, im an untalented commentator that wont make it anywhere else.

    LOWER. THE. RIM. Get some dunks in the game and let the women show off their athleticism. Once you have some viral clips of Candace Parker throwing down on some other women you’ll get the attention of fans... and sponsors.

    Rob was actually right. I've always said, there is a bigger female audience to be had, because there are more available women. More men in jail, dead in the streets, over seas in the military, and men die younger. WOMEN DONT WATCH WOMEN'S SPORTS. Market better to women and entice your base. Then you'll have the revenue stream

    Women's sports don't generate viewership so they don't generate money.

    Just accept the facts that Basketball is a Man’s Sport not Women. Women can excel is different sports like Tennis but not Basketball, That’s the reality.

    My comment is only for women's basketball, if you can change the size of the ball for the girls, then lower the rim so the girls can dunk. That's what got the ABA popping, seeing cats dunking....your welcome

    Why should female professional athletes be paid equal to men? They do not bring in the same revenue and the level of competition is equal to that of an above average high school boys’ level.

    Draymond is 1000% right people need to learn to grow up and accept the truth isn’t always what they want to hear.

    I'm sorry, but Draymond was right. What is being done by the leaders of the WNBA to grow their audience? In today's world, with social media and independent media outlets, why don't we see more from the star players of the WNBA? Who controls their marketing? Who is really in charge in the WNBA? It's not the job of the NBA players to promote the WNBA.

    Soooo. Let me get this right. They start the segment by saying Draymond was outta pocket for saying what he said how he said it, then go on to say everything he said and elaborate on it? His comments weren't any more or less condescending (their word not mines) than theirs

    Based on revenue the women’s soccer team get paid more than the man and not to say US soccer pay their club wages.

    They rejected the same deal as the men. The men's deal was incentive based, the women negotiated guaranteed salaries and a huge list of fringe benefits....which lowered their incentive payments.Now they want their guaranteed salaries plus the same incentives as the men. The whole story is ridiculous, that's why the judge laughed them out of court.

    This equal pay rant is BS. If you dig into the details and know soccer, then you will find out the truth behind it. Actually USWMNT players are trying to extort USSF. In general, most women's sports are not as watchable like the men's sports. Even women prefer to watch men's sports.

    Have y’all seen the WNBA top 10 plays, it’s a list of basic layups that most guys can do. C’mon man they have to do something to make the league worth watching. I’m more entertained by Varsity boys basketball in high school than I am by the WNBA.
