Tim,

I'll keep it short.

You are a punk and a chauvinist pig.

You are the niche, not female athletes.

Period.

i must comment on your preference of professional sports over (somewhat) amateur. professional athletes are indeed "the best" in the business. however, professional sports are not the best as far as enjoyment of the genre. i personally cannot watch over 2-3 minutes of, say nba, without screaming "what a bunch of crap!" and this is with two teams that i don't give a s**t about. pro sports suck. it's a damn shame that this is the only forum these athletes have to earn a dime. go ahead and watch the best. just don't tell me the pro game is superior.
thanks

Some of us like chocolat whatever and some "prefer" vanilla. That does not make chocolat "better". To each his own, I say, and let's cut out the bull about anything being better than something else simply because of childish need to maintain a majority position!

For golf muscle and my own ego, give me the mens tour. When it comes to watching golf with grace, beauty and style,however, I switch to the LPGA channel every time!

Tim you are right, LPGA is not comparable to the PGA tour plain and simple, its not chauvinist thinking, its takes about 5 minutes of watching to figure it out. I say let them compete in the events of PGA, then they can go home after the cut, the Pga , these guys are good!

Well said, Ed.

Each league is what it is. If I were talented enough that the number of viewers determined my paycheck, I wouldn't care if they were watching my skirt or my swing. When I watch the MPGA or any professional men's sport, it's for the sport, and the good looks and tight pants are just a bonus.

Some men actually appreciate the athleticism of women's sports. Then there are closet pigs that can wipe the drool and pretend to. Finally, there is the slobbering set that have given up all hope so they don't mind being disrespectful right out in the open. Like all the pretty girls in their lives, Natalie will ignore them too. All the way to the bank.

PGA and LPGA on at the same time. What would I watch? In most cases neither--but if Michelle Wie is playing I'll watch the tournament Michelle Wie is playing. And there are a lot of people like me.

A 15 year old girl who is a consistent top 5 on the LPGA and who comes closer to making a PGA cut than the LPGA superwoman Anaka Sorenstam. Add to that the naysayers who see performances most LPGA players would drool over as nothing but losses. I would just love to see Michelle do something to make these people eat their words, although I imagine Michelle could win 17 consecutive men's Majors and people would just belitle her accomplishment and say Jack won 18.I hope this is just hyperbole.
