    Sam Newman - Boned

    Bugger. I like Sam.
    I'm almost being forced not to tune in at 12.30 am to watch the Footy Show anymore.
    Not happy Jan.

    Sam Newman told to take break from the Footy Show
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.

    Watch it live at 9:30 if you have a HD box Annie.

    I guess they'll bring Billy in, who I don't mind, so I'm fairly ambivalent about whether Sam is on or not.

    As much as I can't stand Wilson, it is not her but others with an agenda to push that are keeping this going.

    It's fantastic that "the agenda of others", which is to remove offensive and unacceptable portrayal of women in the media, is being pushed and mysogynistic, sexist and degrading behaviour by some on television cannot be excused as a joke. Shame it took a hit to the pocket for some to act rather than their own sense of integrity and ethics.

    Back to the cave Sam - dinosaurs like you are now extinct thanks.

    Times like this you realise what a gem Clinton Grybas was. The footy show panel should watch his tapes and use him as a role model.

    It was a joke.

    I love all the anti women sentiment around when 90% of the overly sexist advertising is targeted towards males.
    Because we don't whine and complain and can take a joke.
    The difference between insanity and genius is measured only in success.

    Really?

    I seem to remember Caro writing an article about this incident about a MONTH after it happened.

    Are you sure it didn't just appear in the Perth newspapers a month after it appeared on the East Coast?
    And the man who started it all, the Schneiderman . . . . .

    Its not only women in the media that are targetted, it can be women in football in general.

    I was on a coaches panel earlier this year and one of the potential coaches questioned the role of women on the panel, as we had never played or coached football. Women were on the panel because we are parents and me in particular had been involved on a footy committee for 7 years. I questioned his question and he just said that as women we should have no imput.

    Needless to say this person didn't get recommended for a coaching job, however he bullied other committee members and there was a new committee convened and he got the job.

    Unfortunately the team he is now coaching whilst winning every game so far, are unhappy, expecially the mothers of the boys as they are not listened to. It's the mums that do the bulk of the work in transporting and supporting their kids and this guy just dismisses it, to the detriment of our club.

    We did have a win in a way last night as he resigned from the committee, but the damsage he has done with is chauvinistic attitudes will live on, and it 's such a shame.
