OK, I'm here to ask the experts I'm a long time player, coach and fan who supports the women's game a great deal. But I'm not a ref........ So far from seeing the 3 US games, and bits and pieces of some others, there are quite a few refs here wowfully over their heads, IMO. Phantom calls and penalties, bogus cards/no cards, penalties retaken for no clear reason, strange signals and flag work, ARs pushing back walls etc. I've also noticed a complete absence of male officials, clearly a PC FIFA mandate (persondate? )! In an effort to be PC and have only female refs and ARs are we hurting the competitors by lowering the experence level below that which is acceptable, or is this just the distaff side of the "third world debacle" from the Men's WC? Or, do you guys who are more knowledgble, disagree about what in my opinion is an absolutely abysmal level of refereeing??
