Shameful scenes as Richard Keys and football's greatest mind Andy Gray have their privacy invaded and their character attacked. A private discussion in which they express widely held views sees them pilloried as sexists and embroiled in an entirely manufactured 'scandal' surrounding sexism in football. The comments that triggered the furore [youtube]Z2tcndFJBug[/youtube] I saw one newspaper article that referred to Keys and Gray as 'dinosaurs'. Andy gray a dinosaur? this is a man who in real time utilises the most advanced technology in sports analysis with a facility that suggests he were tinkering with a mere child's toy rather than operating a hi tech computer system lightyears beyond what any other broadcaster can offer. Imagine John Barnes trying to do that as he examined the deficiencies in sporting lisbons formation on Channel 5. The power surge of just turning the system on would probably send the channel off air. The real story is not Keys and Grays remarks, it is the reaction to them. That story is this: the primary beneficiaries of sexism are women. In a truely gender neutral environment women would be far less successful in the workplace than they are. The fear of being labelled sexist drives companies to employing and promoting women way beyond their ability. You know full well that the FA will be looking to fastrack even more women officials in light of this. Sky are probably considering drafting in some of their sky sports news bimbos into prominent positions on the actual sports channels. The really insidious thing about supposed gender equality is the more obvious the lie becomes the greater its power grows. Employing and promoting women beyond their abilities based on a fear of being percieved as sexist greatly increases the likelihood of high profile examples of female incompetence which in turn strengthen so called sexist attitudes, the strengthening of such attitudes are then cited as why EVEN MORE dumb bitches should be recepients of preferential treatment. It's time to stand up and by counted as men (and by men obvs, bitches cant do math). Football is a man's sport. Its best modern day exponents are men, its greatest ambassadors are men, its most knowledgeable students are men. We have kindly given the ladies women's football and are even generous enough to show it on eurosport from time to time. This is more than enough and if women want to officiate then let them do it there where the lower stakes and lower quality means their lower understanding will not mar proceedings.
