On Azkals controversy: red cards for Cristy, yellow card for media
“Commissioner for the international friendly” Cristy Ramos (“Goal difference,” Inquirer, 3/18/12) deserves two red cards for her part in the Azkals controversy. One, as a woman, for entering a men’s locker room; the other, for undermining the authority of the manager/coach and captain, the two individuals in charge of a team before and during any game.
The Inquirer editorial writer and reporters of various newspapers deserve a yellow card for references to the locker/dressing/changing room of the team as a “dugout.” The dugout is the shelter for team officials and substitutes on the sideline.
