Iranian Women's Soccer Team Disqualified From Olympics Over Headscarves - FoxNews.com
How interesting. Isn't that precisely what most muslims do...attempt to impose their lifestyle and beliefs on others!
I'm surprised Muslims even let women play soccer
Who cares if they wear scarves?
Does it give a competitive advantage?
Its actually a competative disadvantage, and could be a safety issue, as it limits head movement.
You also have the issue of having players probably more concerned some asshat in thier morality police is watching the game, requiring them to be more worried about keeping thier headgear on than paying attention to the game.
I assume they also have to wear pants and long sleeved jerseys, which are unmentioned, but are another violation of the basic soccer kit for women.
I guess there will be none of this from the Iranian women
They could, but they had better immidiately ask for asylum right after doing it. It would be "frowned upon" by the clerics and thier thugs back home.
Damn right, if an Iranian female soccer player behaved that way after scoring a goal she would face hell back at home, better to apply for asylum after that.
But you left out the best part of his statement: "We follow definite rights of our girls."
How do you figure that?
Are they demanding that other teams also wear headscarves??
