    Default TALKsport in trouble for gay slurs

    London talk radio station TALKsport, which is owned by UTV, has got in trouble with Ofcom after two of it's presenters made derogatory comments about gay people.
    Presenter Gary Bushell accused homosexuality as a 'perversion' while evening presenter Mike Mendoza linked homosexuality with Paedophilia. Ofcom upheld at least two complaints, saying that a connection with homosexuality and and Paedophilia was "highly offensive."
    A spokesman for TALKsport said it took Ofcom's findings "very seriously" and called the comments "unacceptable".
    Mr Bushell later apoligised about his remark but Ofcom said it was "very concerned" about Mr Mendoza's remark.

    From the BBC News website;

    Introducing a show in May, Mendoza commented on footballers making appeals over the disappearance of four-year-old Madeleine McCann.

    "Paedophiles in general are the type of people that surely would not follow football... not many gay people to the best of my knowledge are great football fans," he said.


    Offensive or not, I think he's got it wrong on both counts.

    Kiddie football teams are magnets for paedos. Long before you get to the point where you can help little Wayne get his shorts off and jump around in the showers with him, you need to demonstrate a longterm involvement with the game and a sound knowledge of it.

    And as for gays not liking football - eh? Ok, the shorts aren't as tight as they were in the 70s, but there's still a great deal of pleasure to be had watching 22 fit young men chasing a bag of air round a field, kissing and hugging every now and then. And half of them are benders anyway!

    He's simply got his facts wrong, that's all.



    EDIT: Please note the above views are personal opinions and in no way sanctioned by the Morningstarr* board, it's staff or administrators. Indeed, it's wall-to-wall fag's on here some nights.

    He's obviously not 'with it'.

    But statistically MORE heterosexuals follow football than gayers!

    Could that simply be something to do with the probablility that heterosexual males still outnumber homosexuals?

    But the comment was about the population of gays, not the general population.

    For all we know 100% of homosexual men follow football and only 50% of heterosexual do.

    The bloke's clearly talking out of his arse, how is he linking homosexuality to paedophilia? Does he think a gay non-football fan has abducted "Little Madeline"? What the fuck for?
