Goal umpiring is a position where one must confidently stand bolt upright to make the two fingered signal for a goal. It is certainly a decisive, positive and almost commanding stance.
I must say, I'm a big fan of the female form in this position. That is just damn sexy, but they really, really need to rethink the uniforms. Sloppy polo shirts detract from the position as if they're trying to play it down, blend in with the boys perhaps. C'mon girls, stand up and be counted!
Don't get me wrong, I'm not after bikini's (although that wouldn't be all bad), but todays footy players have even learned to pull up their socks and use their uniforms to look professional, intimidating and "commanding".
The blokes (umpires) get away with the sloppy polo's because blokes are defined by their shoulders. Women are different and really need to dress to their strength. Girls, Get some gear that fits!!
Equality is not every one being the same.. Equality is everyone having the same opportunity to make the most of what they've got!
NB. Go easy on me, I'm just a bloke who loves footy, women and Gary Ablett (yeah both of them)!
