Ana Paula de Oliviera, one of the few woman soccer referees in the world, is in the news again. She was much castigated for disallowing a perfectly legitimate goal in the Brazilian Cup semi-finals and her name was withdrawn from list of referees for the championship. Now, she will be seen posing nude in the latest Brazilian edition of Playboy. The whole thing has gotten the Brazil soccer establishment all hot and bothered.
Well, she does appear to be an enterprising person having her own website and video. And she is attractive to boot. One wonders if players commit more fouls to attract her attention.
Mike Newell should not be asked his opinion. We already know what he would say.
