Did anyone else see this tonight? LOL

One of the best I've seen yet. He goes off about how the commish will never pull the plug on that bastard child of a league of the NBA, and thats "ok" but dont bang him over the head with it every day.
Aparrently Candice Parker became the second woman to 'dunk' in a game. It was a blow out, and a break away with noone near her, the 'dunk' was a seudo lay-up dunk.

His last words were priceless:

"The WNBA's got next, and 2 players who can dunk...sort of..."

:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

(for those who dont see the commercials regularly, thats sort of the WNBA's slogan- "We got next"
In an attempt to make the game look like its as substanntial as the mens league. They also have a new series of advertisements with sarcastic statements like "no, you dont want to watch this" etc etc )

Man it was funny as hell. He was blasting them all day on his radio show as well. One of my boys was talking about female boxing and he said, "it's like the WNBA...it's cute, but nobody watches it!" I was LMAO at that. It was a while ago though. I'm not a big Rome fan, but that was funny.

I wonder this shitt sometimes: Why does ESPN back the WNBA, and the AFL, NHL, and tennis (showing highlights on sportcenter from regular season games, consistently having them on the ticker, commercials) with little to no support from fans? Boxing has more fans and support than these sports and only get on the ticker if a heavyweight title or a popular lower weight champ has changed hands.

Floyd was the fourth highest grossing athlete in the US in 2007, only passed by 2 golfers and I think racing, and still little coverage. Most of these sports couldnt get 2.4 million people to watch their game 7 or biggest event, let alone have them pay $60+ to see it. They are trying to stuff these sports down are throat, when its a crappy product, and not even close to boxing popularity, even with its death being whispered by the casual fan. I smell conspiracy. Oh yea and **** ESPN, the major networks, and all those sports they are trying to stuff down peoples throats

Ive always wondered that too. I guess because ESPN and other big networks are so tremendously fat and rich, they can afford to run some of this crap.

Hockey has a bigger following than the others listed, but still isnt watched nearly as much on tv as many other sports.
