    Would we expect a public response from Paddy along the lines of:

    Paddy O'Brien told The Times that the Rasivhenge's mistake was "a moment of madness".

    He added: "The referee forgot his coin and in that moment, in a TV game, he was really pushed for time.

    "He should have been more prepared, he should have had a coin. It was disappointing, it's not appropriate, it's very unprofessional."
    Any referee with common sense would understand that RPS was completely inappropriate in that situation and would borrow or fetch a coin , and the whole story would be a self deprecating anecdote the ref could tell at his own expense .. how he forgot his coun and made himself look foolish (rather tjan making the captains look foolish)

    Hmmm passive aggressive statement. Anyone who disagrees with you on this has no common sense?
    You have your opinion on this, others have their own. Doesn't mean they are wrong.

    Every post is just someones opinion, isn't it ?

    But yes, my opinion is that common sense would tell you it's not appropriate to play RPS in a high profile women's game on TV, and common sense is to borrow a coin

    So you really disagree ?

    I think the problem with your approach is when you write "any ref with common sense" agrees with me, and if you don't then you lack common sense.

    Well, if you make the captains in high profile TV game play RPS because you forgot your coin , I would say that you do lack common sense. Yes. Common sense is to borrow a coin

    Indeed. Because the referee manager was non-male, I wonder if she felt the need to express such outrage. You know, just to show the sisterhood that she had a pair.
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    See, I would think improvising a quick solution, would also qualify as common sense. But we disagree, so its not as "common" as either of us would hope/wish.

    It was PHIL NEVILLE who said all that , not the referee manager .. as my post 57 above

    The referee manager Joanna Stimpson merely said ahe was disappointed.

    It was Phil Neville who went further with the mome t of madneas stuff. Phil Neville gets the issues

    See#57

    Some stereotyping on your behalf ? You owe her an apology :-)

    and nealty demonstrate that you don't get the issue
