Time to bring on back that other -ism.

Unfortunately, it's another sexism post involving Sian Massey, I'm afraid. Here is video of Massey getting knocked over by Cardiff City player Kevin McNaughton. The two times I've seen it linked today it was with comments that it appeared intentional, and sadly I'm inclined to agree.



(Do not read the youtube comments unless you want to be blindingly enraged. I mean it. Don't.)

To her credit, Massey took the hit tougher than most players would have, but it's a shame that she can't even do her job without now being physically assaulted on top of all the stupid things people like Andy Gray and Richard Keys have said about her. It's also pretty disgusting that the crowd cheered when it happened and McNaughton as far as I know did not apologize.

ETA: Bear with me while I try to find a new video source, ok? Ok, I've got another, we'll see how long this one lasts though.
