The woman's game is just at the beginning of its journey.................... so get use to it...............

For a loss leader - SPFL, SPL, SFA, Setanta, Sevco take the honours

Once I finish this cup of coffee, I'm going to wash my hair using juicy green apple shampoo & conditioner (separate bottles) after which I'll see if I can make a decent stab at a pony tail. I've been waiting since the Brechin game last April (my last haircut) for this day.

Outside of St. Mirren I have little interest in football, women's football will join international football, English football, Champion's League football as aspects of the game I only see when they make the main news.

In terms of quality the current tournament is mediocre, in terms of finance it's clearly a loss leader for tapping into the women's market.

What happens in the future is anybody's guess but this is 2019, the former is my opinion and I stand by it, the latter should have been self-evident but I provided evidence that the professional league down is losing money and that the tournament in question is subsidised and piggybacking on the men's game.

I celebrate diversity in life, hairstyles and bread based products!

As all you can say is loss leader, you have demonstrated your needle is stuck....................

I sggest you stay clear of the nasty future as you do obviously dwell in the distant past 

You are entitled to your opinion of course but its one game played by men and women, not two seperate ones................

1. Because it's true, you've certainly not shown anything to disprove it. Also it's not correct that it's all I have to say - the standard of football is mediocre and the BBC are going overboard in their coverage.

2. I have no fear of a future where society is integrated and tolerant of diversity. 

3. I am entitled to my opinion(s) and the only reason I'm continuing this conversation is to point out they're not what you're suggesting.

I didn't read it needs, I read that it was done that way before the appointment of a head of women's football.

With some sponsors signed up to 2030 for the rights of all FIFA's world cups, Gents, youth and women. It may have made a mistake and received more from them, following the popularity growth that the women's game is getting.

The evidence I provide to back the above up is the numerous sponsors who are backing the women on par with gents.

PS it's even easier to find as it's not second hand selected quotes from years ago emoji14.png

We all select our quotes to back our argument (even you :1eye ) my quotes were about the current tournament, your references to tournaments as much as a decade ahead (a far longer timescale :rolleyes: ) seem pretty unconvincing - if the deals are being bundled up (as you seem to suggest) it doesn't strike me as proof that competitions like the women's WC will be self sustaining even by 2030. :rolleyes:

If you read my initial post you'll see my gripe was with the extravagance of the BBC which only yesterday :whistle announced plans to remove automatic free licences for over 75s.

Again if you read my initial post you'll see I look forward to FIFA dipping into the pockets of men and women with equal efficiency - in this debate I am the true feminist! :lol:

Just reading about the Americans overcelebrating.

https://nypost.com/2019/06/12/uswnt-ripped-for-over-the-top-celebrations/

Not impreesed with one of them pinning it on gender. A bit tiresome.

"Would you tell a men’s team to not score or celebrate?"

Erm, yes, but I can't think of too many times when anyone has had to.

TBF there was no over-celebrating from what I saw on the highlights and even if there was WGAF.

These players have dreamed of playing in a World Cup for their whole lives. And they are supposed to tone down their celebrations and restrict it to a handshake? That is a ridiculous thing to ask of professional sportswomen or men. It's not as though they slid along the pitch whirling their tops in the air and screaming in the faces of their opponents.

Someone online was talking about maybe they should have stepped off the gas and scored fewer goals. Whit???? Whenever I played I wanted to score as many goals as possible. If we were 13-0 up I'd have been barrelling for a 14th. The Americans have the killer instinct. Other teams might do well to consider that.
