Pakistani Soccer Hooligans?

kick.jpg Caaaat Fiiiiighhht!! :

Pakistan’s women footballers, used to battling hardline Islamists opposed to their activity, ended up fighting themselves in a landmark final.
A mass brawl broke out after the award of a penalty in the first final of the National Women’s Football Championship in Islamabad’s Jinnah Stadium.

I wouldn’t want to get punched by one of those girls. Wait, if it was footie, why were they using their hands? That’s not allowed! ;)

“The girls of both teams freely kicked and punched each other. The catfight forced the tournament organisers to enter the ground and put an end to the brawl,” it reported.
The federation dismissed the incident as a “football flare-up” and said there would be no inquiry but images of the scuffles were widely covered in the local press.

Of course it was widely covered in the local press. The mens, they loves them some girl on girl action. Not that they got to see it live:

The women players were fully covered to avoid offending Muslim sensibilities and no male spectators were allowed.

Wha-? No men? Huh. I guess they were all covered up so that they wouldn’t offend the Muslim sensibilities of females or hermaphrodites, then.

Hell, why term it “Muslim sensibilities”?

Un-Muslim and insensible me was watching a football game last week when I noticed that the cheerleaders were essentially hopping about in bikinis. They looked like idiots. If you’re the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, that’s one thing…but the rest of you vomen of the NFL– rediscover the allure of a wee pleated skirt. Sheesh.

    the angels see all. remember in the victorian days proper people wouldn’t see each other naked, they’d just strip and do it in the dark.

    That’s not insensible. At the same time I don’t want to be ashamed (covered up head to toe) of a perfectly normal, natural human body, I don’t want to scream, “SEX HERE”. It’s just ridiculous, especially when you’re trying to do an athletic sport. I think I mentioned it before: makes it hard to concentrate.

    In other news, girlies are definitely getting more violent, both verbally and physically, on the field. Gone are the sweet, sweet days when you were socially ostracized for a petty (non) reason…. sigh…

  3. Actually, there were men in the stadium. Only unaccompanied men were not allowed in the stadium. Men who came with women could get in. I’m not sure why, but I think the authorities believe that men are better behaved in the presence of female companions.

    The players didn’t wear shorts, but from the pictures, I wouldn’t say that they were “fully covered.” Stories about Pakistan often suffer from a lack of fact-checking.
