This just in: Mike Newell is a jackass

Mike Newell is the coach of Luton. He is also, apparently, a sexist asshole.

Newell believed his team should have been given a penalty in their game against QPR, and blamed assistant referee Amy Rayner for the decision.

She should not be here. I know that sounds sexist, but I am sexist, so I am not going to be anything other than that. We have a problem in this country with political correctness, and bringing women into the game is not the way to improve refereeing and officialdom. It is absolutely beyond belief. When do we reach a stage when all officials are women, because then we are in trouble?

It is bad enough with the incapable referees and linesmen we have, but if you start bringing in women, you have big problems. This is Championship football. This is not park football, so what are women doing here? It is tokenism, for the politically correct idiots.

I'm trying to come up with a decent response to this, but the whole thing is just so breathtakingly illogical that I'm at a loss for words.
