It's not sexist, it's meritocratic. I watched England Womens v Ukraine Womens on the BBC the other day - i.e. the very top tier of Women's football in the UK. The standard of play was roughly on a par with Altrincham Football Club who this season were playing in the 6th tier of UK football.

The bottom line is that in the UK and generally around the world, men are better than women at football. Are the reasons why they're better sexist? Quite possibly so - disproportionate allocation of resources and socialisation/expectation that people will adhere to gender roles play their part.

Is the way football is broadcast sexist? No. As far as the people who enjoy watching football are concerned, men's football is of a higher standard and is more enjoyable to watch. Therefore, there's more of it.
I like your explanation, I just wish the womens was out there more. Instead of them being pushed to the side. I cant think of anything worse than watching stupidly, over paid, idiotic men running around.
All them beer fuelled men that chant all the way through train journeys too, oh my. Dont. Wanna. Go. There

I hear girls screaming all the time when they are drink fueled on trains,busses and the street.

Guys chant... thats not a football thing. Rugby fans chant, american football fans chant, basket ball fans, baseball, hockey etc etc, guys on nights out....at least with chanting it can be funny or witty...skreaching and screaming is just annoying.
