AFTER 45 years loyalty to the Carlton Football Club, I am disgusted and disappointed by coach Denis Pagan’s sexist, insensitive and totally inappropriate comments about his players (“Over to you, boys” May 11).
When males fail to perform, it is base and simplistic to label them schoolgirls and sheilas.
Women’s fight for equality still has a long way to go. May I suggest Pagan examines and reflects on his leadership qualities before he lambasts his players as members of an implied weaker and immature sex.
Maybe Pagan needs a lesson in gender education while his players urgently require a lesson in how to play football.
