WNBA smacks brawl participants

Add this share

The punishment was handed down and the WNBA isn’t happy. Ten players and an assistant coach were smacked with suspensions for their roles in the league’s first-ever brawl on Tuesday.

Author Patricia Nell Warren has a point-on take about the brawl and the ensuing media attention, writing that women now “have equal opportunity with men to make fools of themselves in front of the TV cameras and try to settle with tempers what they failed to settle with their talent.”

Speaking of the WNBA, the Atlanta Dream schedule includes two home games before the league breaks for the Olympics: tonight at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.
