I was watching a comedian once and he pretty much said that going to work at a conventional job is akin to being a prostitute. Someone who works a regular job just like a prostitute are doing the same thing. Both are getting up and leaving their house to be paid to do something that they do not want to do. But getting back to your question I don't think that the wnba should pressure anyone to pose nude but they should let it be know that if any of them do decide to do so they will not be shunned but instead celebrated and will ultimately end up with more marketing opportunites and thefore putting more money in their pockets.

The reasons female athletes don't get any "love" is because quite frankly, they're boring to watch. Take the WNBA, I've been to games before (they couldn't even give away tickets to see the Shock before they relocated), I found it REALLY boring. Just seemed like a layup drill to me.
There is exceptions (such as the USA Womens soccer team). If it was more entertaining to the general public, people would tune in.
(and for the record, nobody in WWE does playboy anymore since they want to promote the "family friendly" thing)Click banner for tradelist

I didn't say it would detract from what respect and dignity they already have, I'm saying it wouldn't bring more and ultimately the problem is a lack of respect from men. So it would do nothing to help the sport, just individual athletes. They wouldn't be taken any more seriously.

I would actually like to see a sport like volleyball get a pro league as womens volleyball is exciting and fun to watch.

I think its about what you are willing to spend your entertainment dollar on.
To me women's basketball is slightly harder to watch than mens. Both are droll, lifeless contests with little on offer. Am I going to spend any money watching women play B-Ball?, certainly not, as I don't feel anything, I have no emotion other than wasting money........ it's like staring at a wall.Collecting many HOF Cards, Old OPC, Old Parkhurst, Old Topps.

Vince had his female wrestlers pose for Playboy in the 90s. They don't even do that anymore (do they?). I mean do people still care about Playboy with the Internet?
