Graphic by Brent Diskin, in response to these absurd and offensive comments by MLSSoccer.com Senior Editor Simon Borg on the MLS podcast “Extra Time” this week:

“It’s fine if you’re a female and you want to be a super-fan. Clearly go for it, that’s your choice. But there is something to be said for how appealing that might be to the other sex. Having a woman that’s such a fan, like painting your face, tuning in to every podcast. I don’t know how many males would be into that.”

“It’s great that in Kansas City there are a lot of women in the stands, it’s great, but for the guy who wants maybe a serious relationship… If you are following just casually, but if you’re such a die-hard, I don’t know, it comes a point that it is a bit of a turn-off.”

Lots of controversy over this yesterday. Via Twitter, I saw that Women United Football Club [WUFC] will be on Extra Time podcast soon to voice the opposite opinion of female sports fans.
