WNBA Players Salaries Need to be Raised

The main issue that people do not want to talk about, is that female sports are not supported the same as male supports in this country. Many of the WNBA players play oversea’s and sign more lucrative contracts in other countries. For example superstars like Diana Taurasi, Cadance Parker, Tina Charles, etc. earn millions of dollars playing overseas. Women sports are a bigger deal in these other countries. It is really a shame because I personally treat the WNBA the same as the NBA. If there is a great matchup or good game on I am tuning in to watch. If the game is not good I might leave it on as background noise, but more than likely I am going to turn to watch something else. I realize I am in the minority because I love the game of basketball and I actually learned the game from my mom and her friends. I respect the skill and the hard work that these women put in.
