WNBA's Seattle Storm upset with Fox's Super Bowl coverage

During the Seahawks' victory in Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday, Fox showed highlights from what it claimed was the city's only professional sports champion — the 1979 SuperSonics.

That didn't make the Seattle Storm — winners of the 2004 and 2010 WNBA titles — very happy, according to Jayda Evans of The Seattle Times.

Team president and CEO Karen Bryant and three-time WNBA MVP Lauren Jackson, a member of both title teams, expressed their displeasure on Twitter.

"It’s time to look at this quantifier for what it is — sexist," Evans wrote. "The WNBA is the only successful women’s professional league in America. That makes it major. And that has to be recognized. Period. Finding a way to not mention it when simply throwing out a list of titles attached to a city is blatantly disregarding women’s pro sports and a city’s pride in its teams’ accomplishments."
