    The legacy of that leftist Sepp Blatter.

    More SJW nonsense....

    It's 2018, so no-one objects to women knowing stuff about football, talking about it, or just watching a game, right?
    Well, some incidents in this World Cup have left people wondering how much has actually changed in the beautiful game and whether women are being treated unfairly. On Tuesday Getty images published a photo gallery of "the hottest fans at the World Cup" featuring exclusively young women.

    What about people drooling all over footballers?

    And a twittard being caught out by her own tweets objectifying footballers.

    These idiots don't understand how the world works. Everybody likes looking at hot women and they enjoy the attention. Women like it.

    The PC Police at FIFA should catch a wake-up. Since most of the broadcast has males in picture, it's good to balance the shots to include females even if they're not on the field. Even if every cut-to-crowd is females only, the whole broadcast is heavily weighed towards males. We need more women.

    Yeah, in the name of equality, male-dominated half time game analyses should be replaced with female world cup swim suit soccer competitions.

    I didn't know the residents like you cared. So nice if you to ask. I've never been there, regrettably. I'm an Engelsman.

    But that would make it unbalanced in my view:

    More than half the time the camera's are focused on male athletes running and working up a sweat... the broadcasters just giving the viewers that prefer females something to look at as well?

    They probably do when you are 60 and a wierd, dirty, stalker type, which these officials are.
