Joining Mario this week was comedian , one third of comedy group CCCahoots and editor of Connected and technology correspondent with the Sunday Business Post Emmet Ryan.
Being discussed this morning were mommy friends, female referees and the Hong Kong protests which have shown some violent displays in the past few days. Emmet Ryan was coming back from Hong Kong on Saturday and tells us about his experience of the protests.
Laura is not the kind of Mom who wants to make friends with "Mummers", the moms in the schoolyard, the women she feels judge her at every moment. However it seems Laura has given in! She has now succumbed to the Mom friends and their Mummer ways! Will this last?
Mario was up next with the topic of female inclusion in sport and particularly the female referee from Uefa Super Cup match between Liverpool and Chelsea earlier in the week. There was much praise for the referee and this historic moment however there was some questioning of her experience in the game by Gramee Souness , when asked by Niall Quinn how does a ref get that experience , he commented:
‘You do more than two games in a big league in France.’
‘Two games at the highest level: you’re untested. Sorry, that’s a fact. That’s not my opinion.’
Mario thinks he was unfairly targeted online for his comments as being unfair when Mario thinks he was simply raising a valid point and not discrediting her a ref because of her gender merely her experience.
