Even women watch men's sports more than women's sports. I never hear anyone coming to school or work the next day talking about a WNBA game or NWSL game. But I hear them talking about NFL or NBA all the time. I bet even women could name more male athletes than they could female athletes. Are women's sports just not exciting to watch? Volleyball is ok because of volleyball shorts.
When the Olympics comes around, I hear a lot about the Women's Soccer Teams and volleyball. I don't like watching any sport really on tv, it's boring to me. But I do like to go to live games, and there were plenty of people cheering women's teams in college.
I find that its because male athletes tend to be more aggressive and makes for faster paced and more exciting viewing. Have you seen women's soccer? Compared to men's soccer it's like watching flies go at it!
