Give the women some love.

Everyone has the right to their opinion when it comes to which sports they prefer to discuss, and there is no lack for people on this board who have expressed their opinion on women's basketball. I respect that opinion, but I would like the opportunity to express my point of view.

The women's game is slower, no doubt. There are very few - if any - dunks in the women's game, and it's played almost exclusively below the rim. If that means it's not exciting enough for you to follow, I'm fine with that. But that doesn't mean the women don't work as hard to improve as the men. The effort they put into it is deserving of respect, not bashing.

Furthermore, while the football team certainly didn't pack the house this year, and the basketball team may or may not not get invited to a post-season tournament, the bills still need to be paid. The women will likely never play before a packed Comcast Center house, but the better they do, the more money they contribute to the already depleted coffers. I have no idea what their share of a first or second-round NCAA game would be. I'll venture to guess, though, that a trip to the Final Four - which is very doable - would be a welcome contribution to the athletic department bank account.
