They are literally propped up by the NBA yet they keep whining and crying about wanting more money in line with what the men make. When reality is there's only limited interest in women's sports. Therefore they don't generate the income required to justify paying them on the same level as their male counterparts.
I think all the pro. women's leagues just want to be paid better. There is nothing wrong with that. Heck don't we all want that no matter the career chosen? Asking for a lot up front is actually smart on their part. Aim high and negotiate is common in sports.
