Readers’ Comments: I can bowl a maiden over


In response to Dr Gregory Slysz: Women footballers should earn less, because they’re rubbish

Paul Robson wrote: That’s nothing … watch women’s cricket. Let’s put it this way: I’m in my mid-50s, fat, had major surgery last year, and have never played anything other than fun games. I reckon I can still bowl faster than a woman international ‘fast bowler’ (except the long-retired Jo Chamberlain, who would qualify as brisk medium in men’s cricket).

UKcitizen wrote: Can’t wait for them to be paid the same as men, because I will be first in line to identify as a woman and sign up!

boomslang74 wrote: All those drubbings of top women’s international teams by schoolboys; I’ve never seen them reported in the mainstream media … weird.

Dave wrote: I had to laugh when watching a televised women’s game when a corner kick was taken and the ball never saw the pitch. Maybe the boys trashing the women’s teams are just misogynists in shorts. Or maybe they’re guilty of mansplaining the game of football?

Hugh_Oxford wrote: And where are the equally-paid basketball leagues for men under 5ft 4in, or the equally-paid tennis competitions of the over-70s? We can’t help our height or age. Or are some inequalities more equal than others?
