    The problem is a lack of respect for the women's sport. I don't see how nude photos will help that. I didn't start watching NASCAR because of Danica Patrick...I just bought ever issue of Maxim she's in.
    Patiently waiting for someone to bring back sax solos and keytars non ironically.

    If female athletes want to get naked more power to them.I don't think it will help the sport but it would be some nice eye candy.Especially if it were Diana taurasi

    I think it would hurt more than help. At least in Indiana most of the people who go to the games are young girls whose parents pay for the tickets.. Good luck keeping those same fans once the ladies start posing.

    Very good point. I hadn't thought of that. The number of fans that stopped being fans because of moral issues would very likely be more of a detractor than the number of new fans acquired.

    how would nude photo's increase the fan base? are they going to play in the nude or just some pervs going there to imagine they are nude?

    Women have been playing professional volleyball in both indoor court and beach volleyball for years now. It's just not happening in your part of the World.

    definitely a good topic. I think there are female sports that are just as good to watch as their men's counterparts and there are some that don't at all. I'm not a huge soccer or golf watcher, but those two sports I can watch women play just as well as the men. Sure, men will typically fair better if you match up the sexes in golf or soccer, but I think the skill sets are much less dependent on athletic ability. This isn't the same as a sport like basketball. Some sports just magnify the shortcomings of athletic ability when placed against the top men.

    as for the playboy discussion, I don't see posing in playboy as being degrading or look upon a woman or man poorly if they do, but I don't know how much benefit the WNBA would have if it's players posed nude. The WWE is way more than a sporting event and the whole sexual side that posing in playboy provides is a perfect match to the direction they go. They also go about finding talent a little different than the WNBA as they need girls who are athletic but fit a level of attractiveness more than anything. I'm sure there are a lot of girls who would be way better wrestlers than the ones they have now but just didn't have the look that they wanted. Not saying the current girls are or aren't great wrestlers as I haven't watched WWE in years, but it's just a different beast than the WNBA as far as promoting itself and what they are trying to be.
