OK, explain it to me!
Not the offside rule – not interested. I want to know whether they were sacked/resigned for complaining that the linesman didn’t know the offside rule – or a woman didn’t know the offside rule – which is it?
If he had been a man and happened to be gay – would they have been sacked/resigned for homophobia?
If he had been a man and happened to be black – would they have been sacked/resigned for racism?
It matters because it defines whether you can’t suggest that a woman isn’t ‘ace’ at her job, or whether the time honoured tradition of loudly declaring that the referee/linesman has a white stick and a tin can has just been ruled offside…..
Whilst you are pondering – can anyone remember the name of the famous singer “Max” someone? who sang of rugby referees and white sticks and tin cans, can’t find it on Youtube for the life of me……
