Qatar allowed this??


I watched the game and I was rooting for them the second I realised it was a all-women-ref-team. Sadly they made huge mistakes, which will fuel the misogynistic view of many. It really was a terrible performance, but man, who can blame them? I would’ve shat my pants being the first woman conducting such a game.


Thought it was a very selective choice of a match for them to ref.


I wasn't able to watch this game, but how did they do? I didn't hear any negative feedback so I'm assuming it went well? I wasn't sure if people might hate on various calls just because they're all women?


They called a good game. But if they didn’t…so what? Male refs have shit the bed tons of times. Reffing is truly gender neutral…or it can be


Heard some complaints they couldn't keep up with the players running, but didn't notice that myself.


No way, that’s insane


It was okay a few bad calls that you could have seen from a mile a way like the ball crossing the line by a full meter but it is what it is


The term linesman or lineswoman was changed to assistant referee in 1996 to become gender neutral.


And they were good, no comments! But i still wonder why lack of adherence of basic rules are not possible in football..... Especially complaining at referee or asking for a card is not addressed. Really annoying


Damn what’s with all the negative comments


They where shit. This may be because I am german, but they were absolute trash.


Not German and you are spot on. Don’t know if they were any worse than some of the other refs though, to be fair.


bruh I'm from Costa Rica and even I felt bad


You put on a good game thoug I have to say I was impressed.


Haha I don’t follow soccer/football so I wouldn’t lnow


Rampant redditor misogony is sadly quite common.


Rampant redditor snowflakes that can’t find humor in stereotypes.


Once again Brazil wins. 👍🏼


And there has never been more car accidents in the referee parking lot (I’ll show myself out)


Be careful not to crash your car on the way out ;)


Google car accident stats by gender. And maybe some new jokes too.


For people who want to know but dont want to leave the app: [Link ](https://www.metromile.com/blog/male-and-female-car-accidents-statistics/) "More men die in car crashes each year. Men have a higher likelihood of engaging in risky driving behavior such as not wearing a seatbelt, driving under the influence of alcohol, as well as speeding. Men typically drive more miles than women. Severe accidents tend to occur more with men than women. Females have a higher chance of being injured or killed in crashes that are equally severe, though this narrows with age. From 1975 to 2019, male crash deaths were more than double female crash deaths. In 2019, 71% of car fatalities were males. As of 2019, males made up 71% of driver deaths in a passenger vehicle, 48% of deaths as a passenger in a passenger vehicle, 96% of driver deaths in a large truck, 67% of deaths as a passenger in a large truck, 70% of pedestrian deaths, 86% of bike deaths, as well as 91% of motorcyclist deaths. " You could make the argument that there are more men driving total, which would skew results. But polls and reports have found that men are more likely to engage in risky behaviors like speeding, not using a seatbelt, or "multitasking" But what about age? Race? We all know the stereotypes. So I did more digging for the fine folks here ##Age: [Link ](https://www.forbes.com/sites/jimgorzelany/2020/01/28/which-generation-has-the-worst-drivers/?sh=7acc45eb4e5e) (A Forbes article on an Insurify.com study) " The site looked at over two million car insurance applications and ranked drivers in each of four generations according to their driving records, specifically their collective propensity for getting into an at-fault accident and/or receiving a moving violation. This includes Baby Boomers, born between 1946 and 1964, Gen Xers who entered the world between 1963 and 1980, Millennials from between 1981 and 1986, and Gen Z drivers born between 1997 and 2004." "But the Insurify.com study found that those within the Gen Z bracket are not the worst of all motorists. Rather, that distinction goes to the Millennials, now in their 30’s. This generation was found to have the highest proportion of drivers with a moving violation or at-fault accident on their records at 27.31 percent, with 13.60 percent receiving a speeding ticket, and 2.53 being nailed for driving under the influence. The latter is by far the highest percentage among the four generations. What’s more, Millennials were determined to be the most likely motorists to run a red light and be charged with reckless driving." "The safest and most cautious motor vehicle operators are Baby Boomers. To be sure, the oldest drivers losing their abilities are the most likely to be involved in crashes, but the Boomer generation cuts a wide swath in terms of their ages (56-74). Insurify.com’s study found that 15.25 percent of motorists within this generation have an infraction or at-fault accident on their records, with 4.6 percent racking up a violation for speeding, and just 1.01 percent being issued a DUI." ##Race: [Link](https://washingtoncitypaper.com/article/201947/are-people-of-some-races-worse-drivers-than-others-statistically/) "The most reliable information comes from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which has recorded traffic fatalities by race since 1999 (also providing in the process a record of American bureaucracy’s often awkward struggle to label ethnic groups consistently). The evidence shows that driving accidents are the leading cause of death for all races ages 4 to 34. That said, in 2006 (for example) the crash fatality rates for the Hispanic, white, and African American populations were very similar—12.27, 12.50, and 12.31 deaths per 100,000 people, respectively. The real differences show up with Asians—whose fatality rate was only 4.00 deaths per 100,000—and Native Americans, whose rate was more than twice the national average, at 31.17." "Much of this has to do with alcohol use. Asians consistently have lower rates of heavy and binge drinking than any other minority population, while those rates among Native Americans are much higher. (For the record, whites have easily the highest rates of overall alcohol use.) As a consequence, more than half of Native American driving fatalities occurred when the driver was inebriated." "Justice Department statisticians tell us that in 2011 black drivers were more likely to get stopped by police than white, Hispanic, and Asian drivers, and blacks were also more often ticketed. However, among all drivers stopped, they were also the most likely to be allowed to proceed without receiving a ticket—arguably suggesting that police more often stop black drivers **without evidence of wrongdoing**." "In any case, evidence supporting the idea that Asians are bad drivers is remarkably difficult to come by. Researchers at the University of Sydney reported in 2010 that among drivers aged 25 and younger, the crash risk of Asian-born drivers is actually about half that of Australian-born drivers. Lest readers immediately lampoon the native-born Australians for being too liberal with the Foster’s, these results were replicated in a 2011 Canadian study, where researchers found that recent immigrants (largely from China and India) were 40 to 50 percent less likely than long-term residents to be involved in a crash." So there you go


They look like they mean business


Surprised they understand the offside rule.. Guess with VAR they could have 3 of them ref the match


They will never decide on when yo give yellow or red cards.


Does being a woman make them better or worse at their job? No? Then who cares?


Karen look like she lives up to her name.


This is Great News! And well, Neuza Beck got my attention. The picture is perfectly timed as if she got something dangling


Some mug on the Mexican broad.


And all their periods synced up.


Last German goal was offsides


No it wasn’t. The lineswoman called it offsides, but VAR overturned


I swear he never got back onsides but doesn't matter


I could be wrong, but I think he was deemed to not be involved in the play from the first ball, so when the 2nd ball was played backwards, his original offsides position didn’t matter 🤷🏻‍♂️


Yes you are right


I thought you had to get back onside because if not involved in first ball then a pass back makes you involved. But if that is the rule then that is the rule.


The moment the ball is closer to the backline than you you are onside.


Thankfully they weren't referring Spain vs Japan match. That last Japanese goal was sus


They look like they mean business


Yeah. Nothing people love more than a trio of humourless old gals.


They look like they'd throw a card of every single color in the rainbow at you




Too manly.looking for me. No nice looking one.




Mexi-Karen looks like she's the anti-Karen ready to throw hands and obliterate somebody.


Karen Diaz looks like she means business.


Nothing they did upset the game, completely unremarkable.


Why are their breasts covered?


they did not do a good job unfortunately


One more reason not to watch the worldcup


Karen is not messing around


They look evil


Brazilian broad looking mighty Aryan
