When women talk about football, do they parrot what their bfs tell them about it? watch

    • Thread Starter

    If a woman/women didn't have a bf interested in footie, would they by themselves develop an interest in the sport?

    Do they develop an interest because their spouses or bfs are interested in it? Do their opinions basically come from their boyfriends and husbands?
    I say this because women don't really play football exc for the minority who nobody follows. Why would women develop an interest in something they don't play?

    Which begs the question, can you be a follower of football if you don't play it?

    An afterthought, I suppose you can be interested in the sport for the wrong reasons, eg. you admire the player.

    Yes, you can be a follower of something you don't play. And women can be interested in football whether or not they have a boyfriend/spouse who is

    I love football. I come from a massive football-fan family. I used to play football, and only seem to go out with guys who aren't interested in it. My interest in football is just that, an interest in football!
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
