While the above picture of the assistant referee, the girl Massey, as they would say in football parlance, is a bit unfair because she seemingly had a good game, it was the catalyst that led to the sacking of Andy Gray.
Now as most of you know I don't usually blog about sport, but this is not really any longer a sport story. Gray has been instrumental in bringing about the success of Sky Sports, through his excellent knowledge and ability to communicate his thoughts on the Sport that the majority of men, if not all follow. No, this is not about football, but instead about ISMs.
The first ISM is feminISM. I've been going to live football matches for over 40 years and in that time, the fan base has changed from being predominantly male, to about 30% female. Men used to go through a 'right of passage' at the football with their male mates after going there with their fathers. I got mates on Facebook, who used to go to the football with me 40 years ago and we haven't seen each other since, but there is still that bond. Why has it changed? Well, in addition to the FeminISM issue of wanting to do things that men do, (try and get into the W.I. as a man though), there is also the case that families split up more easily now and more women now take young males to the football, rather than men.
This young lady, is Charlotte Jackson, who finally put the nail into Andy Gray and Richard Keys' careers by complaining about a sexist remark, said OFF CAMERA, as were all the other remarks which contributed to their downfall. Well, Charlotte, in my book, if you want to complain about sexist remarks, DON'T APPEAR IN LAD MAGAZINES, IN THE SCUD. (Although she has a very nice scuddy body, IMO, if that's not sexISM).
The second ISM is ZionISM as displayed by Rupert Murdoch. Now I know he's not Jewish, but as Jewish people will tell you, that doesn't stop you being a Zionist. Andy Gray, as it happens is suing the 'News of the World', as a result of the phone hacking scandal which is emerging. Now as I'm sure that you'll know, the News of the World are owned at least in part, by Newscorp, which in turn is owned by the Murdoch family. It all seems very convenient to me. How do you know BTW, when you're a white, male, working taxpayer. Well, you don't have an ISM!
SUE THE ARSE OF THE AUSSIE BASTARD, ANDY!
