Host Jackie Powell is joined by Cassandra Negley of Yahoo Sports where the pair break down how WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert was able to get the planes in place. What planes? The charter planes that will allow WNBA players and teams benefits that they didn’t have before. Jackie and Cassandra explain why the addition of charter flights matters in the WNBA, why has the roll out from the league been rocky and then they look ahead to the future. How does the league providing charter flights during the regular season give it an edge the upcoming CBA negotiations with the players?

  1. This charter flight deal is expensive though. The total cap space of the WNBA is $16 million, and they are going to pay $25 million for charter flights.But I guess that the salaries will increase with the new media deals, and some players get NIL-money of that.

  2. They will never admit it but social media backlash and due to fan excitement. The numbers are in there favor and the players basically said they will opt out at the end of the season btw I’m listening 25 minutes in right now on the podcast.

  3. Toronto Expan$ion 💰 hit WNBA bank account is what happened.. Toronto group probably agreed on fee based on charter ✈️

  4. Is there a way to do the commercials without the guest having to sit through them? Just a suggestion, good podcast!

  5. Just not happy without starting BS . Stop hating you are both a joke.

  6. I love these types of conversations! Keep them coming.

  7. I think all thy y’s and talk is going to cause more problems than solve. Do you really need to know all of the business

  8. Saves on allot of administrative costs for people to make all the arrangements tickets, etc.

  9. Caitlin Clark should be Riding a Bicycle to the away Games….The way She's Stinking up the Court.
