All Female ‘First Take’ Panel Makes Loser Internet Angry
Hey, you know what's a great idea in 2016? When you see a bunch of women on television, you whip out your phone and blast something into the Twitterverse about how they're inferior to their male counterparts. Brilliant move!
Like, seriously, if you're struggling with the reality that Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith will never again scream at each other about esoteric sports bullshit, fine, just don't take it out on Sarah Spain, Jane McManus and Katie Fagan. Go shoot up that old car in your backyard or something. Go down to the playground and destroy a 12-year-old in one-on-one. But don't channel your angst into some deep-seeded issue with the fact that some human beings have vaginas and also watch sports.
SPOILER ALERT: "First Take" fanboys did not like that these human beings have vaginas and also watch sports.
The ESPN W "Trifecta" crew hosted the program Wednesday, seeing as Skip Bayless is gone and Stephen A. Smith is busy concocting NBA gossip on a tropical beach somewhere, and not surprisingly, people were not happy.
Fox Sports 1's Katie Nolan sounded the alarm just moments after the show began.

Obviously, Nolan was right. It's a sexist warzone out there.
If you were ever curious as to how fans of the dumbest show in sports media feel about gender roles, here ya go...
