    Default Offside rule & women

    Premier League - Sky football presenters in sexism stormMon,
    Sky Sports have been forced to apologise after presenters Andy Gray and Richard Keys made sexist comments about a female lineswoman.
    ..The pair had been chatting while working on the channel's coverage of Liverpool's Premier League victory against Wolves at Molineux, but their microphones were still on and the comments were picked up and later passed on to the media.

    The comments, which were at the expense of female lineswoman Sian Massey, implied that women could not understand the offside rule.

    "The comments reported are not acceptable," Sky said.

    "They were not made on air but we have spoken to Richard and Andy and told them our views. They have apologised and expressed their regret.”

    In the first half of the game - Massey's second game in the Premier League - there was a close call to officiate as Fernando Torres of Liverpool struck the opening goal.

    But replays showed that her decision to rule Torres onside and allow the goal to stand was the correct one. Liverpool went on to win the fixture 3-0.

    “Somebody better get down there and explain offside to her,” Keys was reported as saying on the leaked tape.

    Gray replied: “Can you believe that? A female linesman. Women don’t know the offside rule.”

    “Course they don’t,” Keys replied. “I can guarantee you there will be a big one today. Kenny (Dalglish) will go potty. This isn’t the first time, is it? Didn’t we have one before? Wendy Toms?”

    In reference to Toms, the first female referee's assistant to officiate in the Premier League, Gray opined: “she was f***ing hopeless as well.”

    Ron Atkinson was caught like this one time while working for ITV commentating. He thought he was off air but everyone heard him saying something racist about some player. I think it was Desailly.

    The ironic thing is that some of the players on the field probably act more like girls than the linesman(woman).

    Edit - As in some of the players are prissy prima-donnas. Not saying the linesperson looks like a bloke or anything.

    Gray and Keys should have to wear dresses and make-up for their next match.

    Being an assistant referee requires the ability to multitask. Watch for the last touch of the ball as well as the attacking player and the last defender. Definitely more suited to the fairer sex.

    They can say what they like about her but she got that Meireles decision dead right, very tight off side call but fair play to her she called it dead-on.
