Erin Phillips in Alpha: Progress in women's sport?
(Mod: Initial title was "How far women's sport has come...")
Disappointing to see Erin Phillips lose her kit for the sake of $$$. One would have thought the days of women having to expose themselves for money were well and truly over, given the growth in player salaries, particularly with Vince Marino on board at the Lightning. Considering (at a guess) she makes about $50K for the Lightning, $10K for Centrals, plus Opals payments, her WNBA gig and various other promo work/junior coaching work, does she really need the extra cash? Last time I checked, $60K-plus for a 21/22-year-old without a university degree is pretty unheard of. Nothing like selling your soul...
