    Upon closer examination of the article: No fucking way.

    The "Report: " construction is perhaps the most damaging part of journalism right now.

    That isn't a report. It's a guess.

    "Report" = one of NDJournalist's predictions.

    Anybody who predicts an NFL franchise will go out of business probably needs to banned from making predictions.

    The biggest news in that link was the link at the bottom that said Lee Trevino regrets being in Happy Gilmore.

    I'm surprised the WNBA has lasted this long (16 years). Of course, the NBA is propping it up financially, but still....

    Mark's surprised there's not 24 MLB teams, 16 NFL teams.... a struggling ABA and an NBA team in Fort Wayne. lol.

    The WNBA made it 17 years.

    The Beatles made it half that.

    I actually thought with all the sensitivity regarding g/l issues that the gays in sports pioneers in the WNBA would be thriving and overflowing with fandom.

    I guess folks in the lgbt community don't like watching shitty basketball either.

    The WNBA will continue to exist as long as the NBA chooses. NBA subsidization is all that's been keeping it alive this long, and the NBA can maintain it on that life support status indefinitely if it wants.

    That article's prediction appears to be based substantially on Stern's impending retirement. But it fails to note that Adam Silver is basically Stern's handpicked successor, so I suspect he'll maintain a similarly favorable view of the women's league.
