Sheilas is offensive ?

Quote
‘Sheila’ was a common female name in Ireland, used alongside the name ‘Paddy’ to represent the archetypal Irish couple. From this early usage (dating from the 1820s in Britain) ‘Sheila’ came to mean any female, whether Irish or not.  This British use of ‘sheila’ was then transported to the colonies

8 out of 9 claims made by Jess Varnish rejected by the independent review.
Only the use of the term bitches, upheld:-

I am aware of a scenario, at the time of the World cups prior to Rio, whereby the collective term "bitches" could, and imo, should have been used.

I seems to me that BC have tried to please both sides JV wins but SS doesn´t really get any damage to rep and will be hired probably by Cycling Australia

fwiw I recon SS is a sexist twit, but JV got screwed
