This is an independent site covering women’s professional basketball across the globe, concentrating on the WNBA. Chief writer, editor, and all-around man-in-charge is Richard Cohen, whose ramblings you may have encountered before at SportPageMagazine.com (or possibly as Richyyy on a variety of forums around the internet).

Why WNBAlien? Because I like to think that I look down upon the WNBA with an impartial eye (y’know, like an alien looking down on the Earth), because I’m based outside the USA (making me an ‘alien’, in US terms), and because I like the way the ‘A’ noise from the end of ‘WNBA’ runs into the start of ‘Alien’. Also it lends itself to a cute graphic.

    Where are you located? What piqued your interest in the W?

    • I’m in the UK. I’ve been a fan of elite-level basketball in all its forms for a long time, and for me that naturaly led to the WNBA. The wonders of the internet have made it possible for me to follow the league nearly as closely as anyone in the US in recent years (the only difference being, obviously, that I can’t be at the games in person).

    I run the sports media outlet FootBasket.com and we are going to have a major site redesign in the next few weeks and we are looking to expand a lot more on our sports coverage. I was wondering if we could have a partnership where I could syndicate your content? FootBasket.com has over 8 million unique pageviews and we are syndicated with Fox Sports and MSN. We were also on ESPN as SportsNation’s site of the day. Let me know what you think, thanks! You can email here: rocksbasketball23@gmail.com
