Sick of seeing Gabby; VIEWS.

THE backlash against this new breed of feminists should hardly be surprising to them.

From faces on bank notes to tribunals if male applicants get the jobs they apply for, they are showing it's not equality they are seeking but to completely take over.

I am writing about what I have noticed the most the almost total domination of women presenting sport.

No problems with Gabby Logan on Football Focus and part of the presenting team for the Six Nations rugby.

However, this summer it has been impossible to go any week if you watch terrestrial sport without Gabby Logan popping up.

Events have included most of the Diamond Athletics meeting and the London Anniversary games presented by her.

I much prefer Jonathan Edwards presenting athletics and he brought enjoyment to the Paralympic World Championships with his knowledge.

I was relieved swimming is not a sport I watch. That would have meant another week of Gabby Logan. This including three appearances this weekend - twice with swimming plus presenting a new game show.

Gabby is not alone. Channel 4 racing at one time had a team, now taken over by Clare Balding. When Jake Humphrey left Formula One coverage, Suzi Perry arrived pit side. So it goes on and on.

Let's hope ITV4 keep with Matt Smith and the powersthat-be realise viewers do not want a constant stream of female presenters.
