I'm sorry to say it but I think the club has no option to immediately sack Pendles over his hateful, misogynistic tweet.

At least we can all agree that Twitter has been a great step forward for humanity. Imagine if Scott hadnít had the opportunity to make this off-hand comment, people hadnít had the chance to write back angry responses to him and we hadnít had the chance to read all about it in the newspaper (with a think-piece in The Guardian tomorrow, if weíre lucky)? Where would we be then?

I said in another thread that if I had my way none of our players would have any social media engagement. No good can come from it. They shouldn't be tweeting. They definitely shouldn't be reading bulletin boards.

Hehehe

I do agree K, so many dickhead# on social media, some of the crap that comes out, and by people you thought might be intelligent! And so many just looking to cause a ruckus.

But this? Seriously? Who gives a ruck! Canít we just be happy that his mind is firmly focused right where it ought to be, on the team he is captain of.

He doesn't rate crap, good on him! Neither do I.

Should have gone further and called it for the farce it is, a disgrace to associate such a dismal comp with the real thing.

Whenever the words ďslammedĒ, ďoutrageĒ or ďcalls outĒ are in a headline, I refuse to read the article as I know in advance that itís going to be meaningless self-pleasuring mob drivel aided and abetted by slimy lazy journalism.

Can't help but agree.

I'm actually proud the captain I support feels the same way I do.

I don't think we can really conclude anything about how the captain feels.

All we can tentatively assume is that he doesn't think about the women's game at all and thus has no feelings about it at all.

Yeah I really donít think there was a hidden message there, IMO heís just focused on his team.
