I warned you about the WNBA and other dumb women’s “sports” that no-one cares about. Not only are they a waste of time, but apparently, they’ve now bred a terrorist.
The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for help tracking down the sender of threatening letters complaining about ESPN and ABC coverage of women’s sports. The letters, containing powder determined to be harmful insecticide, complain that camera crews have exploited the players through certain camera angles.
One wonders what that means, since it’s generally impossible to “exploit” a 7’2″ woman who looks like a man “through certain camera angles.”
More from Associated Press:
The writer or writers complained that ESPN and ABC crews have exploited cheerleaders, WNBA players and WTA Tour players through certain camera angles, even though those angles were rarely shown on the air.
The FBI released excerpts of two letters in the hope of identifying who sent them.
“For the past 6-7 years, ESPN and its nationwide networks have exploited cheer/dance teams all across the country. They do this by parking their TV cameras on these women for their own personal entertainment,” an excerpt from one letter said.
“Pigs park their cameras on us close up, front view, dozens of times each game, yet rarely ever show on TV in this manner,” another excerpt read.
Investigators believe the author “may be directly or indirectly involved in some element of cheerleading and/or the television production/coverage aspect of collegiate athletics,” according to an FBI statement.
Well, this proves one thing. I was wrong when I said no-one watches WNBA games. One nutjob feminist, armed with insecticide, watches.
Attention, Advertisers: You, too, can reach this prime demographic by advertising on WNBA games.
Hmmm . . . have they checked Martha Burk‘s handwriting samples and prints?
In related women’s “sports” news and the continuing series of great “achievements” of its participants, Fantasia Goodwin–a Syracuse women’s basketball team player–just gave birth to an illegitimate child. Hmmm . . . yet another out-of-wedlock mother named Fantasia. Must be something in the drinking water of those with bizarro names stolen from animated Disney movies.
