Sunday Sport Panel: Fifa's 'hot women' ban political correctness gone mad

  • 15/07/2018

Has Fifa gone too far, banning 'hot women' from broadcast coverage of the Football World Cup?

RadioLIVE's Sunday Sport panel believes it has.

"If you look at the women shown, they go crazy when they get on," says Miles Davis. "I reckon half of them go in the hope they might get spotted.

"I'd rather [broadcasters] just focus on the game – some of the television coverage at this world cup has been abysmal."

On the other hand, Andrew Gourdie defends the product shown over the past month from Russia.

"What is a broadcaster trying do?" he asks. "They're trying to make you watch and there are different ways of doing that.

"But I actually think, at this World Cup, I've seen as many young fans with their dads or brothers or mothers, as I have been 'good-loking women'.

"I think I've seen a fair, balanced reflection of the most passionate fans in the stadium."
