Default Any Publicity is Good Publicity for the WNBA

I went to the Detroit Shock vs. L.A. Sparks WNBA game...I know how that sounds (No I'm not gay or a Lesbian trapped in a man's body. I went as a guest for free with 3-girls). The game was entertaining, but the Palace was half full and most people were there with either Free tickets or they paid $10 at the most to get in. It was rather sad to see a professional sport not have fan support.

So when the fight broke out, I thought immediately that this is going to get people to take note of the WNBA.

They are saying on ESPN and in the news that the WNBA didn't want to expand their fan base in this way....But isn't any kind of publicity good publicity? I don't think the WNBA should embrace fighting or condone it, but it's my opinion they should capitalize on this while people are paying attention and try to increase their viewership and fan base.

Women's pro soccer is gone, and basketball is struggling...so shouldn't they seize the opportunity?

OR Does anyone really care about the WNBA at all?

When I saw this on the news this morning I was thinking that this would probably be the best thing to happen to the WNBA up to this point.


But what is it with the Palace and basketball brawls?
