According to the SJWs it is.



We need more Trump threads.
SJW didn't start a thread about it, you have.

Trump threads exist because he apparently has the support of at least half of the country.

WNBA threads don't exist because nobody cares about petty bullshit.

But yea, TDS.

:roflmao:

NBA revenue is more than 100x the WNBA. WNBA isn’t profitable. So why do so many believe that she deserve disproportionately more than her male counterparts relative to the revenue they generate :unsure:

A major court ruling forced college athletic departments to share men's sporting event gate receipts with women's programs. It is the primary reason why opposing judges everywhere are allowing trannies to overpower women in women's sports.

End the gate sharing, and these judges will start excluding trannies from women's sports. You can't get around the fact that men are better athletes.

Face it. More people send more money to men's programs in free markets.

For a lot of them its the cocoon of success......either theirs or their parents or its because they are getting a government check in one form or another. Then there are the ones who are just incredibly stupid and resentful of the success of others.

I'm not sure. It was a U.S. appeals court case in the '80s which interpreted Title IX law as forcing schools to share men's school sports gate receipts with women's sports programs. Here's a very cursory, very biased history of "equity" unearned payouts to women athletes:

Lots of this is negotiated by the player's union. There's a reason a sideshow moron like Aaron Rodgers or washed geezjob like Russel Wilson is getting the bag, and there's a reason teams that hit on rookie-contract QBs can afford to sign Tyreek and Deebo and CMac and pass rushers galore etc. and have a loaded team for Purdy or Tua to play with. Look at the Texans; they got a playoff win off CJ Stroud and they have three "free" years to stack the roster because they're not paying him something that starts with four or five and has eight digits per annum.

In the NFL it's the second contract where you get the bag. The rookie deal ain't sh!t. At a glance the WNBA seems to have the same thing going. After some cheapskate owners tried to twist their draft picks arms the latest round of bargaining basically codified what rookies can get paid, this way Spanos can't cheap out on it anymore.

Basketball is more like soccer now. It's an international sport. The elite domestic players are geezed. LeWashed, Steph, and KD are all ready for pickleball and daytime TV. The best players are internationals - Antetekunmpo, Jokic, Wembanyama and the interest is strong overseas which is where the women often go.

Remember, the NBA (except for Michael Jordan selling shoes and Charles Barkley mad at NY and SF) lost zero sleep "going woke" but the instant Darryl Morey said one word China didn't like, the Houston Rockets sh!t-canned him.

“As per WSN, the WNBA generated around $60 million in revenues in 2023, which comes from 12 teams in the league. Compared to the WNBA, the NBA generates $10 billion in revenue which is generated through 30 teams across the league.”
Exactly what I said above.

“Of the $60 million revenue that the WNBA generates, $12.3 million is distributed among players, which is 20.5% of the league's total revenue. While the NBA distributes 53% of its revenue to the players' salary.”
You neglected to explain the economic theory behind the WNBA players receiving less than half the slice of their respective pies that the NBA players get.

Some costs are relatively fixed, but revenue is a lot lower?
So there’s left to spread around
And because they can

What @Random Guy said. The fixed costs are a much smaller slice of the pie in the NBA.

Also- the WNBA doesn't run on a profit. Therefore as a portion of profits, the men are making far less :poke:
