What do you think about Mike Newell's comments about the female official? Personally, I think it is outrageous that he said that it was the fact that she's a woman that led to his judgement of her performance. OK if he said that an official was physically unfit and not capable of carrying out his/her job, but to base his comments on her gender was appalling. I've known many linesmen struggle to keep up with play, but no one has brought their gender into the issue. If a person is fit and capable of carrying out their job, then what has their gender got to do with it? Nothing to do with being PC; everything to do with having the best people possible in the job.

I totally agree Keith.

We had a ref on Saturday against Burnley that was absolutely disgusting but nothing was said about his gender, possibly his parentage but then thats normal anyway.

Male/female officials they all make mistakes, its whats called being human.

Thought this funny. From The Sun 13/11/06


Reasons women make good referees

1. They are always right.

2. Men would mind their language.

3. They have a calming influence.

4. They never lose an argument.

5. They always have the last word.


Reasons women make bad referees

1. They can’t stand the sight of blood.

2. They’d get lost on the way to the ground.

3. They’d add injury time for breaking a nail.

4. Matches would kick off 30 minutes late.

5. Players would trip over their handbags.

Laughing Laughing

Regards

Alan

Keep women out of men's football...they have there own version of the game and should referee that.
Sporting the latest in designer ladies shirts by Armani is Nancy, 29, blond , blue eyes, from Essex and a graduate of the Hackney Marshes ladies sunday League...get out of it..Offside ref.
They'll need minders on the pitch when a tough decision has to be made ...no...get em out ...the girls that is.

Interesting one that 'they'll need minders on the pitch' ...I remember that referee that fell over backwards when Paulo di Canio put his hands up to his chest (Sheff. Wed. 1 Arsenal 0) ...went over like a big girl's blouse ..I guess if the ref had been a woman, Paulo would have been arrested for sexual assault! Seriously though, I think that di Canio would have had more respect if it was a female ref and not put his hands on her ...but then again, he is Italian....

On the question of keeping women out of the game altogether, all I can say is that Wednesdayite female fans have always made a great contribution to the banter home and away ...and recently at Hillsborough, young sisters in the group Twin more than held their own with the Barnsley fans at half time when they were performing on the pitch ...and I just love to hear women's comments about other women match officials ...priceless!!

What I meant was that, if the referee had been a woman, di Canio may have held his temper out of respect for women and restrained from any sort of physical contact …but that, as he is famous for saying, he is a proud Italian who plays the game with a passion that is difficult to restrain.

Why did you ask me this?

Keith
Thank you for your response.
I asked because i wanted clarification that your comment related to an individual and not Italian football players/people as a whole.

I think lady officials should official lady matches. Agree he went about complaining the wrong way, there are very poor male officials too.
