Reader’s Comment of the Day: How long before women’s football replaces Match of the Day?


In response to, Belinda Brown: Now the Scouts are to be transformed into a feminist front, blingmun wrote:

Recently the BBC has been heavily promoting women’s football. On the BBC Sports website, there is often equal prominence given to men’s and women’s football, despite a gulf in interest among both men and women in the respective sports.

But if popularity has nothing to do with it, why should women’s football get more attention than netball, women’s badminton or even men’s basketball? I’m sure everyone involved in these sports would love to see their own games and news reported more often. The BBC website seems to have given up on the idea that they should cater to the interests of its readers. Instead it is engaged in social-engineering.

In the past I assumed such cynical manipulation had something to do with Common Purpose but perhaps it has more to do with Scouts Honour?
