    Yes, it does , you don't get it !
    It's the opposite to what you said .

    Forgetting his coin was a mistake, that could happen to anyone (we have all forgotten stuff)

    What was unprofessional was what happened next .. making the captains play RPS

    That's where we disagree.

    I understand that some think RPS was unprofessional.

    I do not agree.


    RPS was a bit if quick thinking to resolve the situation. WELL DONE REF!

    Sorry that you can't understand that I disagree with you. But there we go. Richard Craniumand the rest of the jobsworths acted IN MY OPINION as real bellends. THere we go I don't think #i can be clearer than that!

    Now we've done this to death. I'm out.

    I'm wary to tread in here, but...

    This is the top tier of domestic Women's Football, a game that still struggles to get taken seriously. It's an issue that a lot of women playing what have traditionally been seen as "men's" sports face. We still have referees over here who patronize women players, insist on coaching them despite the fact that they are National D1 Final Four and better players than he a referee, and make "safety" based decisions that don't apply to the men's games they do.

    The dynamic, therefore, is different when you have a male referee doing the top tier women's games. Do I think the referee is sexist? No. Is there risk that blowing this off as a simple accident and no biggie could look like demeaning the women's game? Yes.

    No win situation for any of them.

    Maybe next time they should have a Twerking competition ?

    I don't really agree. RPS is fine on a one off occasion. Forgetting the coin is the greater sin.

    No, it was the RPS .. Simon's post 63 explains it perfectly

    here's the bit that gets me.

    Let's say its a women's 7s game in Dubai - New Zealand v USA - and Rasta is the ref. Rasta forgets his coin and does RPS.

    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."
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    I would expect not.

    In my view any referee manager who was once a referee should to bat any questions away with a bit of levity. Then in private he would have a quiet word with the ref concerned.

    Given Paddy has hung referees out to dry previously, yes I can see that happening.

    As I said earlier (and as Crossref reiterated) this isn't just about the mechanics of forgetting the coin. It's about a wider set of dynamics.
