Last week, Carolina Panthers QB Can Newton pissed a bunch of people off—most notably, women in sports and women who love sports—when he stated how funny it was to hear a female talking about running routes.

While many came to the defense of the female reporter, you’d be crazy to think a lot of men don’t think like Cam. John Moffitt seems to agree.

The former NFL offensive lineman, who has been out of the league for four years, recently took to Facebook and posted his thoughts on the Cam situation. He not only found it funny, but he also explained why women could never understand football. He then went on to state who the real sexists people are.

“Here’s all of what Moffitt said: “Women don’t know football- most guys barely do. Stop coming into male spaces and demanding respect.. guys care about the substance of things not the appearence. Just because networks like a sexy sideline reporter for you to look at doesn’t mean cam is sexist for questioning the authenticity of her game knowledge- he was laughing because she was fed that question like most of her kind are. If women are so knowledgeable with a game they can’t play let them do play by play or color commentary.. but no, and women don’t even see that it’s not cam but the network that’s sexist, or just can’t lie about the truth. Women don’t really know the game- they are incapable. Yet in this society where a women can do anything a man can do and men can do nothing this is a rock and a hard place. Personally, I thought it was funny too!”
