    Fact is women’s football simply doesn’t have anywhere near the same numbers as men’s football let alone other male sports.

    My feeling is this is nothing more than a clever marketing ploy from them (released on International Women’s Day) to get more focus and attention on them by playing the inequality card which they know full well people will lap up all day long.

    They’ve got no chance and they know it.
    The women's game IS profitable in the US. That's just the point. You can make an argument similar to that of, say, a lesser men's league, like Germany, where there are only a couple good teams and Bayern wins it most years. Hence, you could say that the US and German women's teams deserve the lion's share of revenue. But you can't argue that the US women's team doesn't generate revenue, because that's not supported by the evidence.

    I know, evidence. What am I thinking?

    This Tim fella's interest in promoting Women's football is highly suspicious. As suspicious as a flamboyant homosexual who has a passion for working with young boys.

    You make good points, g. But I'm fairly certain it's only backward countries like the US, footballistically, I mean, of course, where the birds have even remotely comparable numbers.

    I think you're right. Or else rampant socialist dystopias like Sweden. Amazons one and all, and who manifest no interest in the D.

    During the world cup, I got in trouble with the wife for pointing out that having some broad on the panel talking about top-flight men's football was the equivalent of getting me in to do punditry on test matches. She could have no insight into what these games were like, since the football she plays is utter dogshìt by comparison. It was tokenism of the worst sort.
    Bit harsh on yourself there, Burney. Didn't you once get 70 or so in Shamley Green?

    Have you seen a picture of him? Definitely register-worthy.

    Mind you, I find football women remarkably sexless. I think it's the fact that they're dressed like men doing a man's sport - puts me right off.

    In middle age I was a decent and destructive club batsman. In my youth I was a very good club/league batsman and a bang average County Colts player. None of these qualifies me to speak with authority on telly about the pressures or experience of playing test cricket. Same goes for some bird talking about playing in the World Cup.

    Totally, there are some fine netball players but I'm convinced the kit helps*

    *My wife watches a lot of netball, so by default I see some of it........honestly
