There is really no need for there to be a WNBA because it definitely doesn't generate any revenue at all. It is just a huge waste of valuable resources and money that could be put toward better use.

I accept the debate-- and I let Pro start off in Round 2

Debate Round No. 1

Pro

1. Women can't play basketball
2. Nobody goes to watch their games
3. The owners lose millions by paying the players and not making a profit
4. We could take their arenas and turn them into parking garages or amphitheaters
5. There would be more women as secretaries and in kitchens

1.) Where's your proof?
2.) Where's your proof?
3.) Where's your proof?
4.) Where's your proof?
5.) Sexist-- and rude in any way

Therefore I have nothing to refute against, and Pro just destroyed himself by saying his last thing, about secretaries and kitchens.


I'll provide one argument as Pro provided 0 good ones.

I begin with the fact that Basketball is good for women because it provides exercise. As shown on the website [1], you can lose 544 calories per hour playing basketball around 1/4 of what you should intake a day. Keeping this up in 4 hours you can burn off all the calories an average person eats a day.

First off, if they cook healthy food then they won't need to burn off much fat at all. And the proof is in the pudding. Name one person who enjoys watching the WNBA. Don't waste your time, I'll answer it for you. NOBODY!! Check and mate!

One person who loves the WNBA. I love the WBNA, therefore I win.
