    She could have made that point and kept barnes name out her month, he didn't deserve to be slander by her bs talking point. Besides that nba/wnba profit margins are totally different and shouldn't be compared ;50% revenue in a dead league like the WNBA isn't realistic at all

    How are you going to say this when you see nothing but empty seats in the arena?

    A) I agree that the Barnes shot was unnecessary
    B) no one is talking about profit, we talking revenue.

    To point out that sports leagues of smaller size typically do not have the conditions they are speaking of. She talks of commercial flights like it's similar to taking a broken down bus across the country, which is a reality for a lot of men's leagues.

    Mike Trout, Mookie Betts, etc drove through the night on shytty buses just to arrive at another podunk stadium the next day. And WNBA players are going to complain about flying in a plane full of businessmen, ceo's, and other working people? I don't get their point.

    And I'm not saying that they have no right to complain just because someone else has it worse. I'm saying that their conditions seem fine and that they should not be comparing themselves to NBA players in the first place because they are nowhere near that level.

    the nba subsidizes the wnba....without nba money, the wnba would fold within a year. Since the wnba officials/lawyers struck that deal with the NBA, they believe that they should get majority share because they are the reason the wnba is surviving, not because of the players skill.

    of course the nba is the opposite.....advertisers would still make deals with players if there were no league officals or lawyers.

    technically nba players are underpaid and wnba players are overpaid

    it is reasonable to ask for more compensation, but she didn't have to disrespect Harrison Barnes like that, because it takes more effort and skill to be an nba all star than a wnba one

    The league itself is massively profitable. So much so they can "underpay" stars like LeBron James so the Harrison Barnes's of the world can share in the wealth and the James' still can have contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars. The WNBA does not have the profits for a 50% revenue split, if they are even profitable at all.

    And she is never getting 50% revenue split, so she can stop imagining.

    BRI between the players and the teams is based on profits and future expectations. You can't request a higher revenue share when the revenue you're requesting is probably already in the hole.

    she has a point....

    barnes in the nba is no where near the player she is in the wnba

    problem is the wnba doesnt generate the money to get her the salary she deserves

    The assumption has been up to now that the WNBA has been a league run in the red rather than the black and survived on the support of the NBA.... but the way these players are talking maybe there’s more money being generated than we originally thought or know.

    If so she’s absolutely right but otherwise she and her fellow players should understand the economics of their situation.

    That dude had the nerve to ask someone else if they understood economics before making a statement like that. nikkas are so committed to their Coli gimmicks reason goes totally out of the window.

    These chicks don't even play 50% of the games of an NBA player but want the same 50% revenue split. :laff:
