What a Delightful Young Lady

Other than incredibly rare occasions in other sports, why do we regularly see this in football? Constant arguing with officials, swearing, spitting and this time hitting.

Alan Judge should've got the same ban as well.

It needs stamping out.

I don’t know if you read the article in its entirety, Balls, but she does sound like she’s a genuinely ok gal having personal problems and a bad day at the office created this situation.
But…….🤷‍♂️, who do we believe these days? Who knows. Maybe she is a cretinous delinquent!

I do firmly believe that there should be a list of players that referees are allowed to headbutt without there being an investigation. Gareth Bale for the man bun. Harry Kane for diving. Gareth Bale for diving & again for the man bun. Just make players being headbutted legal and it could solve issues.
IE…… if there are to be 5 subs……. If they walk off ——>> headbutted. Stretchered off, 5 extra minutes added on to the 9 minutes already added on. All about cleaning the game up.

I’m fishing, so I’ll probably get a bite…but just to add. A few years ago in a 28 day cycle I lost my job, I lost my dad and I got hit by a car on my bicycle. I still managed to smile and joke at the end of the evening. My daughter who was PMSng had a fit cuz she’d run out of flaming hot Cheetos! Just perspective… :lol:

I wonder if she talks dirty in the bedroom.

Seriously, I don't see what the fuss is about. If she seriously thought the referee was a fcking prik, then why is she being admonished for being honest? It was after the game had finished, after all, and if the referee cannot handle being spoken to like that then maybe she was right all along.

She did wrong, she admitted to doing wrong and apologised. I feel for first offence the punishment is harsh, if this was male player would authorities gone so hard? We do not know

That referee who pressed his head against Alan Judge's also was reported by Sunderland this past season for something similar against a Sunderland player. Wonder what punishment he received. I am not defending Lucy here because even she knows she did wrong

There's been so many cases of male players doing similar with different level of punishments can't think of many this harsh though

Well you guys might but like my response here . But having thought about it for a bit , I do wonder if there’s not an element of sexism behind this decision?

As we know male players do this kind of thing every week in the game - yet barely a raised eyebrow occurs and certainly not a 6 month ban .

So is this a ref and the powers that be, making an example of this female player ? If this is to be the punishment dished out for this category of offence, then it’s going to be an interesting season ahead in the male profession this season isn’t it !

And as for number 9’s post , well that’s a typical male response to a female voicing an opinion, and is the sort of thing I’ve had to put up with all my working life . When a female then challenges the fella about his comment the response is usually along the lines “ don’t get your knickers in a twist LOVE I was only joking “ or similar such condescending remarks .

There still to this day remains one rule for the boys and another for the girls in society as a whole . 99.9% of the forum users here will not appreciate my comments here - because you are male and are not subjected to these remarks of put downs . It’s an even bigger “ battle” when a women is interested in a male dominated sport … or works in a male environment. It can be tough guys ! 😘

Not arguing as such Hallam, but I will say a couple of things. None of us have seen the video have we (genuinely asking, I've not looked for it)? So we can't really comment on the harshness with too much authority.

Also if my relationship broke down, then I can guarantee the courts would side with the mother when it came to child custody. Sexism works in many ways and men lose out in lots of ways too, not trying to say men have it worse though!

to be totally honest Lis, my first reaction when i see a woman on Sky sports or TV talking about cricket, football, golf etc etc my first thoughts are, " What do they know about these sports," I even even say to the wife, why's there so many woman now on TV telling footballers etc etc where they are going wrong, I even got banned from a golf course for telling this stuffy woman she should be home cooking her husbands dinner. 8)

Anyway after my little rants and her indoors response i come to the conclusion these woman sportswoman probably know more than me on there sports and i know for a fact my wife does.

In time we will get used to it,
Anyway after reading this Hallam your washing up needs doing. oh and don't forget the ironing and the boss needs a cuppa. :wink:

“Feckin Albion Rovers could beat them!”

:lol:

I knew I’d get a bite! Just trying to reel it in. To be honest, Hallam is exactly spot on. Things are changing though. I was making fun of my daughter didn’t mean to start a debate on sexism. We’re all different…I have the upmost respect for women, but I do think dads are unappreciated. Just my opinion.

Lol funny how generations and times change .

My uncle now ( he’s 94), ALWAYS did the cooking . Think that was from his Army days in the catering corp… he still makes really good pastry even now.
So if you want a good meal and don’t like washing up go to a Knott household 😁👍

I do apologise to the forum for laughing my arse off to this humour. Right up my street, GnB. :lol:

True story, conv a few weeks ago with an auntie who’s health issues all go away when she’s on the keto diet. One thing that happens when shes eating too much sugar is her hair gets thin.

She said, “oh hiya son, come on in, I’ll get the kettle on. While yer here Mark, be honest, you think my hair is going thin again?”
“Yep, you’re looking bald & fat, Maria! Get back on the keto for Gods sake!”
She too laughed her arse off because she appreciates the more cutting humour. 👍

The fat b*stard knows I'm joking.

tell you a little story Hallam, when me and the wife first started courting she worked in a sport shop and was sport mad, I took her to my local one day, in those days the woman usually sat in the corner with their half and a packet of crisps, while the lads played darts or dominos, anyway to play darts you put your name up on the chalk board then chalked a game and played the winner. the pub went quiet when she put her name up. she chalked a game and when that match finished the winner walked away and refused to play a female, nobody would play her so me and her played darts all night with no challengers, after a few weeks she was in the darts team when they see how good she was, she certainly changed that pub.
