    What kind of gobbledygook is that? What is it like to be a woman in sports and be up against what? This isn’t prejudice, it’s a simple fact, there is no team sport I can think of where women are equal to men in terms of entertainment or skill or strength.

    There’s nothing subjective about it. Men’s football is faster, more skillful, more exciting, more aggressive and more competitive. Same as Rugby, Tennis, Golf and pretty much any sport going. Women’s sport is being falsely marketed as being comparable to mens sport but the reality is if they were to be played against each other there’s only going to be one winner and it won’t ever be the women.

    Whilst I’m on the subject, when women want the same prize money as the men’s events then let them compete against the men and play under the same conditions. 5 sets of champion’ship tennis, not 3, men’s tees on the golf course, not ladies tees. Anything less is unequal and the prize money should reflect that.

    • Yes but sports on TV etc aren’t really about who is best. They are entertainment. If women’s sport is as entertaining as men’s, it will have the same viewers and the same advertising. Tennis pretty much manages this. It sounds like for the OP (at least) women’s football doesn’t.

      I do watch squash because I understand the game and prefer the women’s game for this because it is possible to see what is going on. The men’s game is *so* fast that it is difficult to follow the tactics etc.
