And it does. The men's game only draws 14.8 million with the women at 18.8 million.

Nobody gambles on the men’s game

Good read. Clay Travis excels at being wrong. Wonder if he's in shambles.

For any of the sinners out there, betting against his bets is always a great bet

From The Athletic:

The Indiana Fever — who will presumably draft Caitlin Clark in Monday’s WNBA Draft — will play 36 of their 40 games this season on national TV, which outpaces every other team in the league, including defending champion Las Vegas. It’s a massive bet on Clark and the economy of eyes on her, which boosted women’s college basketball ratings to new heights this season.

I cannot wrap my head around these numbers any longer.

2.4 million viewers for the WNBA Draft on Monday on ESPN (first time over 1 million)

NBA Draft did 3.7 million in 2023 on ABC/ESPN

MLB Draft was 744,000 on ESPN/MLB Net in 2023

NHL Draft was 681,000 on ESPN last year

Newly signed TV contracts NCAA basketball tournaments:

Men: $1.1 billion annually

All good news for the women, but there is work left to be done.

Not sure what that has to do with willie's point that "hardly anybody watches chick bb."

The fact is the audience has been growing for years. ESPN clearly got a bargain this year.

All good news for the women, but there is work left to be done.

On the other hand, the women's previous contract was $34 million annually The new contract is a 91% increase in value.
The men's previous contract was about $771 million annually. The new contract is a 42% increase.
Still a massive gap, obviously, but impressive growth for the women's game.

A lot of work.

NBA #1 pick "Wemby". 4 years 55 million or $13,750,000 a year
WNBA #1 pick Clark.    4 years  $336,000 or $84K a year.

Clark will make millions with deals, but the other picks below her will not even be close.  I didn't realize the salaries were that low in WNBA.  Thats why some go to Europe, Russia, China after WNBA season to supplement salary.

The WNBA is still subsidized by the NBA.

Willie's post was ignorant.

I was pointing out that while the women have made tremendous strides (as you factually illustrated), there is work left to be done.

Do you throw your remote at the TV with all the pro-women advocates pointing out, the inane and obvious observation, that the gains are good but they wish for more?

Every WNBA player should be profusely thanking Caitlin Clark. She moves the needle, nobody else has in that sport.  I hope her presence improves the ratings and revenue generated in the WNBA for years to come.

Instead, we've heard a lot of bcrap from these WNBA players.  All of them, no matter how accomplished or good they are, should be kissing her buttocks on a daily basis.  Here's the news:  No one gives a flying f about Brianna Stewart, Taurasi, and these other current or past players.  If Caitlin Clark averages zero points a game, they should still thank her.  What would be fair is for Caitlin to sign a contract 50 times more than the highest current contract.
