Donna Lopiano Quotes

  • ''There are no golden geese. There are only fat geese eating the food that could nourish more athletic opportunities for women.''
    Donna A. Lopiano (b. 1946), U.S. sports executive. As quoted in the Chronicle of Higher Education, p. B1 (December 2, 1992). Lopiano, who was the executive director of the Women's Sports Foundation, was pointing out the disproportionately small amounts of money being spent on women's athletics by colleges and universities, and the large deficits being run by many Division I men's basketball and football programs—programs that were often said, erroneously, to be "golden geese" whose profits fuelled the rest of the institution's athletic programs.
