WNBA Is Still Going YALL!

http://www.azcentral.com/sports/mercury/articles/2011/07/16/20110716wnba-female-athletes.html


Fifteen years ago, when the NBA Board of Governors approved the creation of a women's basketball league, reaction was mixed. The excitement of another professional league available for female athletes was tempered by the small-mindedness that has often dogged the group.

Guess what? A WNBA whose motto has morphed from "We Got Next" to "We Got Game" should try on "We Got Longevity" for size. Women's basketball is alive and well, thank you very much, and those who think that NBA owners should cut ties with the league to help ease financial woes during the lockout can take a long crossover dribble down a short plank.

For all the WNBA taketh - and make no mistake, the league has had its struggles - it giveth so much more. Young female athletes need to know their hard work can translate to career opportunities. They also need to know there are ways to land on a sports magazine cover without sporting a bikini.

PSL Is Capitalism for Some Season Ticket Holders...

Some Giants fans are making significant profits when they sell their New Meadowlands Stadium personal seat licenses on the team’s official PSL resale website. But others are walking away without coming close to recouping their original investment.

An analysis by The Record of the first five months of PSL sales on seasonticketrights.com shows that the most profitable PSLs have been in the loge section, which includes the first few rows of the upper deck between the end zones. Nine of those seats — all in the first four rows and close to the 50-yard line — have sold for an average of $7,556. Those PSLs originally cost $5,000, with a per-game ticket price of $105 and including two preseason games.
The official website offers a window into the PSL marketplace, but using it doesn’t come cheap. A fan selling two loge PSLs for a total of $15,000 would pay a fee of $1,500 — nearly one-third of the profit. The buyer also would pay a $1,500 fee.

Forbes List It Top 50 Again...Cowboys Still Tops List in NFL!

The NFL has grown explosively over the past 25 years as TV revenue jumped 700%. The league’s 32 teams now divide $3.8 billion annually under the current round of broadcast deals, which expire after the 2013 season. With ratings at record levels, the next TV contracts are bound to be even more lucrative.

Teams that were selling for $70 million in the mid-1980s are now worth $1 billion on average.

NFL owners claim they are not getting a big enough share of the league’s $9 billion in revenue, but a look at the world’s 50 most valuable sports teams shows how valuable NFL teams already are.

The list is littered with NFL franchises–all 32 teams make the cut, led by the Dallas Cowboys, worth

NBA Lockout Wont Stop The Sale Of Sixers!

The NBA lockout has brought league business to a screeching halt, but it is not derailing the expected sale of Philadelphia 76ers.

“I think, frankly, this has been baked in from the beginning,” said NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver, when asked whether the lockout would affect any team sales, especially the expected sale of the Sixers to a group led by Joshua Harris, senior managing director of Apollo Global Management.
