Women Can’t Play Football (stay with me here!)

A letter written to & published by The Independent explains why the writer believes that women cannot play football:

“I watched the England-Germany women’s football on TV. Why was it screened? Women can’t play football. They don’t even know the basic rules.
When tackled, they get up and play on. They don’t pretend to be hurt. They don’t dive. They don’t get opponents sent off. They don’t wrestle at corner kicks.
Worst of all, they don’t hassle the match officials. As any fool who has watched men’s Premiership knows, that is not the way to play football.”

– David Hickey

I have to say that I cannot argue with Mr Hickey.
If men play football the way it should be played then women have proved they haven’t the first idea.
Though I have to say, it is a little refreshing isn’t it?!! 🙂
