I am disgusted to witness the Premier League excusing the Sexist behaviour of its Chief Executive by hiding his disreputable attitudes behind a veil of legalities to allow him to remain in post. No doubt similar excuses would have been levied for Racist emails too. Clearly the Kick it Out campaign has absolutely no meaning in Gloucester Place. But surely we should not be surprised – the only thing that truly matters to the Premier League and its Chairmen is LOADSA MONEY rather than gentlemanly conduct and football. I do know that in the company I work for emails with content of this nature would have led to dismissal regardless of rank.
Since the Premier League appears unable to police itself, maybe it is time for the FA to show their true mettle and disown the Premier League and refuse member clubs entry to their competitions – which I suspect would also mean that the players could not play for their national teams. That would surely get their attention and ensure that Sexism and Racism were much more quickly addressed. This assumes, of course, that the the FA believe in their Kick it Out campaign too and are prepared to enforce it?
