What a star Shearer is.
It is sad that he made these comments – there is no need. You can criticise a match official without having to bring their gender into it – that is completely irrelevant. She has earned the right to officiate at that level by doing all the qualifications.
A couple of years ago Ron Atkinson wasforced to resign after making racist comments in the wake of Chelsea’s Champions League game against Monaco in April 2004. While I am not keen on people being sacked I do think that we should treat sexism in a similar way to racism.
What is interesting is listening to the comments afterwards with Jose Mourinho wanting the FA to investigate the challenges and then Steve Coppell and goalkeeping legend Bob Wilson saying there was no intent shown by Hunt and Sonko in their challenges.
What is fair to expect off a goalkeeper?
