Geno Auriemma, the coach of UConn's female basketball team, is calling Americans sexist for not supporting women's sports as much as men's. However, Americans will watch individual women, just not teams.
Auriemma explained, “Generally speaking, the American public is just so sexist when it comes to women’s sports,” he said. “The American public, they’ll watch Serena Williams, they’ll watch women’s tennis. Why? Because it’s individual. It’s fascinating. They’ll watch swimming in the Olympics. They’ll watch gymnastics. They’ll watch figure skating, but they’re not gonna watch team sports in women’s sports.”
Mr. Auriemma has won 10 national championships and is arguably the most well-known coach of a female sports team.
