Maybe Mr.Blatter was misinformed.....a reader writes
Maybe Mr.Blatter was misinformed because obviously he has no idea what he is talking about. Women's basketball uses a lighter ball, but Women's Soccer Players are for real. Just because we do not have our posteriors hanging out of our uniforms or spilling out of our shirts for male entertainment is no reason for a "person," not man, of his position to say such comments. And women's basketball players play in loose shorts and loose shirts where it is comfortable and fit for the game, not for the displaying of goods. So, he clearly does not know the game of basketball either! As all female soccer players know we too play a full 90 minutes per match. We may not always have new muscles to go test out on someone like males, but we play with heart, grit, and are technically masters of the game. Are red cards not issued in the women's games? I think so. It is too bad that this person cannot see the brilliance of the Women's game.
Maybe we should invite him to come to the United States and show him how women play the game because here in the States we take it seriously.
Soccer player and enthusiast,
