Look.

I don’t care about bloody Sport, I get that many of you do and I have sadly come to accept that as I live amongst you.

Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the physical skill required to kick balls, catch balls, bounce balls, throw balls and run with balls, but my heroes are the writers, philosophers, artists, poets, scientists and engineers, not people who can kick a ball.

I’m already over all the endless coverage of the bloody Soccer but please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, buy a fucking ticket to these poorly sold games and go because if you don’t we are going to have to put up with months of media navel gazing with panels of angry feminists all screaming ‘why do men hate women’s sport’ because it will of course be mens fault if the stadiums are empty.

I am over the coverage right now when we should be debating the election and I sure as Christ don’t want a millisecond of more coverage once it ends.

So please go watch the ball kicking so we can avoid the inevitable, ‘why do men hate women’ palaver.

  1. If Football is like other professional sports it will be cold chips and warm beer…sounds enticing.

    Ignore ball kickers perhaps, whatever their gender unless you are a true fan–are these women footballers old school ones with uteruses or trendy new ones with cocks and balls?

  2. It’s the same argument in USA as to why women’s basketball has such low attendance…once again the reasoning comes down to mysoginy and money.
    Women make up 50% of the population, selling out games should be a no brainer, but women tend to not attend sports, men do in big numbers…no matter how much you pay more to the women players the fact remains mens sport is more popular to watch.(and more exciting, better skills-IMHO)
    Netball being the only sport in NZ, that’s predominantly women, that bucks the trend I believe.

  3. We’re in the middle of a recession.
    We can’t get decent wage rises to meet the cost of living.
    We’ve been locked out of home ownership.
    The country is run by bankers cartels and corporations extorting us at every turn.
    We’re being threatened with catastrophic climate chaos and nuclear war.

    F@ck buying sodding tickets.

  4. I am weary of women’s sports demanding “equality” with men’s sports, as in “why are the men earning so much more”. I am weary of sports organisations, government, trying to push us and guilt us, into supporting something (women’s sports) that I’m just not excited about. They’re mostly boring, compared to the levels of physicality and skills displayed in the equivalent men’s sports. Let them stand or fall on their own merits, and their appeal to their target audiences. Stop trying to guilt us or manipulate us, into having to like and support them. It’s social engineering which is per se abhorrent. Hate to think how much of our taxes is being shoveled to this women’s FIFA show. And loving that despite all the brouhaha it’s still struggling, going by this post.

  5. Love rugby and don’t give two shits about soccer and women’s sports in general other than watching the Silver Ferns (yes I realise I am ‘supposed’ to call it football but just like the ‘plea’ to attend one of these games not really that responsive to being told what to do especially if is to tick some kind of virtue signaling box).

  6. I am looking forward to getting the political opinions at games of all the Soccer MUMs, as they decide elections.

  7. I watched a Bill Burr special, he made a valid point about women’s sports. Women don’t show up and watch, but expect equal pay. Ladies how about you hold up your end of the couch…

    Anyway I don’t like soccer & I am not spending my average hard earned pay, to subsidise highly paid professional sports men and women.

  8. considering the US national womens teams stellar performance against wrexham(far from a top flight club) don’t expect much other than media blather like the shooting this morning the effect on womens football was the story.

  9. Sad truth. Women’s football is seriously lame and slow compared even to 4th Sottish league. Yes of course they must have their world cup, but don’t force us to be in awe and go Wow. Messi, plus one 4th rate goalie alone could beat the entire NZ girls team. No jokes.

  10. Women’s soccer is shite, that’s why no one cares about it.

    When you get females playing to the level of your Pele’s, Messi’s, and Maradona’s etc, then it will naturally increase in popularity. But that will never ever happen.

  11. Some quite negative comments here. I attended some U17 women’s world cup matches in Kirikiriroa Hamilton a number of years back and they were great. The atmosphere was vibrant and the fans from different countries really added to the atmosphere. I love sport – I get that some don’t. I also love the arts, music, writing etc and that’s what makes us a diverse nation. We don’t all enjoy the same things but they all potentially have value and can add to our lives – individually and collectively.

    Sometimes the overall economic benefits to the country – especially for large sporting events can be overstated and the general populace can end up paying for benefits for a few. In hindsight, however, the opening match and unexpected win for NZ last night was perfectly timed as an antidote for the horrific events earlier in the day in Auckland. You can’t put a price on that. We saw the worst and the best.
