Which is why his comment on the April 30th edition of his MLS podcast surprised me. This got a little touchy, which is usually fodder for someone else.
Anyway, here's the quote. You be the judge.
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.
For the record, I don't think he's on the mark here. I'd be all over it. But whatever.
UPDATE: Jezebel has gotten hold of the story. Cue the misogynistic outrage!
