People who try to dress up their prejudices in a nightgown of constructive criticism are easy to see a mile away.

You can be quite wise when you're talking about stuff other than mens' football, Syf.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

I'm not the one playing the sexist card pal, and I'm not excusing poor standards I'm simply saying that I'm annoyed that you try to discredit the effort and dedication of ladies based on one game in the rain.  I have watched many great ladies games and have enjoyed them much more than some of the blanket bullshit on offer from the men.
But of course you are and you did it explicitly.

And what makes you think my view is based on one game?

Is my calling you sexist for being sexist playing a card or stating the facts.
Over and out. 
I used to be indecisive but now I'm not too sure.

More especially when Mayo football isn't the subject under discussion.

Facts?

Seriously?

You haven't used any facts.

Flesh out what you mean by "facts".

Oh right, I thought that was a wind up. I coach our U12 girls the proper pick up primarily because it is a very good skill for developing athletic ability and balance. They are all well able to do it after practicing like the boys. The reason they don't implement it in the ladies game is because, like we've discussed in the men's game, it may not be a skill that adds to the game. I actually think there's plenty of merit in removing the pick up from the men's game to speed it up and remove a decision for referees that can be difficult to implement correctly all the time. Wasn't there doubts over a Bastick pick up in the All Ireland final?

So, basically the girls are well able to perform the pick up but those formulating the rules decided the pick up wasn't a skill they wanted to transfer. As odd a thing to focus on as using a size 5 ball I'd have thought.

Have to say I disagree on the pick up thing, I used to think it was pointless but watching the women's football without it, you sometimes see wrestles on the ground for a loose ball which end up in a throw up. In men's, this would be much more frequent. In order to get your foot under the ball, you have to be someway in control of it. Changing the rule would just end up in rucks imo

Jaysus I though Sid was a warrior for women's rights and here he is being a tad sexist.

It's a back door, just as in the men's game. Women's football also have intermediate + junior levels.
