Twelve years have passed since Sepp Blatter uttered the immortal words "Let the women play in more feminine clothes like they do in volleyball. They could, for example, have tighter shorts." His comments were, back then, met with ridicule and anger, but did he have a point?
Everyone knows Blatter was/is a bit of a clown, and very much a law unto himself. Yes, his starting point in coming to these words of advice would be one that many today would find abhorrent and, here's that word, sexist. For most, his opinions would be dismissed and the world would move on, through a trajectory of more intelligent debate.
