Leak of sexist emails has Premier League hierarchy in hot water

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore should be revelling in the end of another thrilling season of soccer, but instead is scrambling for poor excuses as to why he's sent sexist, in some cases xenophobic, emails from his work email address.

A former assistant leaked the emails to the press. While the Premier League is apologizing for the emails, they are also criticizing the leaker.

What did Scudamore write, exactly?
In one email, the PL exec “praised” the Chinese for what's been referred to as “gendercide.”

“You will learn over time that female irrationality increases exponentially depending on how many members join your family. That should keep you within the Chinese government's one child per family enforcement rules. Very clever those Chinese.”

From The Independent http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/news-and-comment/football-chief-richard-scudamore-sorry-forlack-of-judgement-after-leak-of-sexist-emails-9352616.html :

The Premier League today issued a statement on behalf of Mr Scudamore in which he apologised “for any offence caused” by the “inappropriate” comments, saying he had made an “error of judgement” he would not repeat.

He continued: “These were private emails exchanged between colleagues and friends of many years. They were received from and sent to my private and confidential email address, which a temporary employee, who was with the organisation for only a matter of weeks, should not have accessed and was under no instruction to do so.”

A Premier League source told the Sunday Mirror that the comments were made in a “Frankie Howerd-style way”.

As you can imagine, the response to the leaks has not been positive. How will the Premier League deal with such an incendiary issue? prosoccertalk
