You're not very good at second guessing me today Mike. I haven't said it shouldn't be on or that it shouldn't be advertised anywhere, have I? I have quite clearly said that the product does not live up to the hype around it. As for some of the figure you are quoting about people watching the womens game, I would suggest you are a very, very long way off. I'll give you an example with some vague comparisons; Chelsea v Manchester United in the WPL was a little deciding match with Chelsea and you know all about our very own match last weekend with regards our own title ambitions. We had 8147 in fourth tier football. Chelsea in top flight football had 4378. The TV viewing figures would have struggled to trouble 1 million given that the record for a WSL match is 1.1 million for the Manchester derby.Basically you're saying that because you
don't value women's football then women's matches should not be broadcast and even if they are broadcast they shouldn't be publicised because that is being politically correct. And what about the hundreds of thousands of fans (if not more) that do like women's football? Don't they have the right to be informed of upcoming matches, schedules, important players etc?
