'NAIVE' BLATTER COMES UNDER ATTACK


Women's football legend Marieanne Spacey has labelled Fifa president Sepp Blatter's suggestion that female players should wear tighter shorts as "crazy".

Blatter said that women should wear skimpier outfits in a bid to raise the popularity of the game and "create a more female aesthetic " - and has sparked uproar from those in women's football.

Spacey, England's most famous female footballer, now manager of Fulham Ladies, laughed off the remarks, but also claimed they are damaging to the growing populrity of the female code.

"It's about the skill and technical ability," she told Sky Sports News. "That's why people come to watch in the first place and that's why people come to watch in the women's game as well.

"We don't get massive crowds, but they come to watch football and what the players look like or what they wear.

"How can you wear tight shorts? It was proved 10 years ago that men running around in tight shorts wasn't very pleasing on the eye.

"You have to take the game on its merits and don't try and dress up to be something it's not. Football is a game and you have to take it on its merits. At the top level we need to get more supporters in and the way forward is to focus on the game and the technical ability, not what the players look like."

Spacey, who won 91 caps for England, admitted that Blatter's comments are likely to cause more damage than harm and suggested that the most powerful man in football has alienated a sport that is rapidly on the rise.

"It does surprise me because he's such a powerful person in the game of football," she said. "But it has caused uproar in the women's game, but it also caused a few chuckles in training.

"If I took tight shorts in to any of my players, they would moan like anything, They're comfortable in baggy shorts - it's all about freedom of movement.

"It's a crazy comment and maybe just a comment made in naivety of the game."

What a thing to say, in the first place... Especially when you're already one of most-hated (and authoritable...) men in football for sticking his nose in where it didn't belong (ie. the Rio Ferdinand affair).

Did he think saying "girls should wear hot-pants and bikini-tops" would make it all better? Are we all supposed to love him now, because he says what a majority of (American) people are bound to have been thinking since they first saw a woman in a football kit??


And what about his job as FIFA President? Surely, saying something like this has got to affect EVERYONE else's views on him? And, perhaps, even, his comments could be found as "sexually" offensive, putting his job at risk, altogether [or, at least, I HOPE!!]??...


Certainly, NOT the way to go about retaining your "reputation"! :)

Yeah.

Just adapt Blatter's comment for that, and I'm agreeing whole heartedly with the man.

He's a pratt there is no doubt about that and I see you cut and pasted the article direct from the site. I don't know who proof read the article before posting it but I cannot believe that Spacey actually said the above :)
