Does anyone watch the WNBA?

I don't even know if it has TV contracts, but it's not on any of my stations, and I don't get many cable stations from the USA (all I get are the main CBS, PBS, ABC, FOX, and NBC networks... nothing like TNN or WB or anything like that...), so I don't even have the choice of watching it.

The closest I've come to watching the WNBA is the 2-ball competition at the NBA All-Star Skills Competition, and there's definitely some good skill in that league!!!

Opinions on the WNBA, anyone?????

No, I don't really watch it at all.

But, Lisa Leslie and Sheryl Swoopes are cool.

I haven't watched an entire professional basketball game (either NBA or WNBA) start to finish since the 1995 Rockets-Magic finals in 1995.

No I don't watch it. I consider it more of a joke than a league.

Why a joke? If anything, the league that's a joke is the XFL.

I don't see how its a joke. There are talented women athletes in the league, so lets not have women + sports = joke. After all, the worst WNBA player could still school both you and me.

The XFL is a joke.

I recently heard that 100 or so XFL players will be in NFL training camps next year.

Well... going to training camp and making the team are two very different things.

Well I was just saying that at least some of them got noticed. I doubt many of them will make the team. I did hear one of the guys got signed though.

Well Indiana has a team now, the Fever so they are on TV quite a bit around here but I dont usually watch it. Sometimes if there is nothing on or a commercial break I might tune in for a lil Basketball in July (after NBA u start to miss it ) But I dont consider it a joke, its a great league for women. Not many of those around.

We have a team here called the Liberty. I haven't see any of one of their games since the first WNBA season.

You know the worst WNBA player would school you. Heck, even some of the WNBA coaches would school you.

I think it's a boring, non-entertaining league. It's no less of joke to me as the XFL is to you guys.

The ratings suck, even worse than the XFL's (and since that is a joke according to you guys, they I guess that makes the WNBA an even bigger joke).
