Your first observation .......I was implying that in some publications and coverage.
Secondly that's why it's taken nigh on 100 years and a bit of research by your good self to discover that on the agenda Beeb ( we have been here before with my opinion of our government broadcaster, another thread)
At the risk I have no problem with women playing football my ire is with the unequal funding from the respective FA,s because that cash has been generated by men's football of all standards.
My other gripe why would you choose to televise Man City women v ? when quite clearly the only reason is the gender ,and not televise say FCUtd v Salford City e.g the standard of football betwixt fixtures is immeasurable.
Just to add another annoyance was the appointment of a women's linesperson the other night v Yeovil. Stick to the women's game .
