WORLD CUP USA '94 / QUARTERFINALS : Spotlight : SHE IS WOMAN, HEAR HER ROAR

Should fans of women's sports be outraged over the extended media coverage the World Cup has received in the United States?

Nancy Levin of San Francisco says so.

In her letter sent to sports departments all over the country, Levin throws the women's sports coverage argument back in sports editors' faces:

"I've heard it again and again: 'Until there's a demand for it, we can't run stories. . . . Without a proven record of drawing crowds, you can't expect the media to cover it. . . . Funny how that logic is applied (inaccurately) to women's sports, but not to (men's) soccer and the 1994 World Cup."
