The Truth about Goats

Assistant Referee still self-identifies as a ‘Linesman’


UEFA have come under fire for discriminating against ‘linespeople’ and their right to just focus on throw-ins and corners.  Since 1996, Graham Pollock (47) has had to live the lie of ‘assisting’ the referee, instead of doing what he loves best – running up and down the touchline, while being verbally abused.

Mr. Pollock explained: ‘I’ve always been happy to be a linesman/woman – the less syllables the better.  I never saw ‘Lino’ as a term of abuse.  And ‘Who is the wanker in the black?’ is non-gender specific’.

Graham claims to have been wrongfully dismissed, but that may simply be down to confusion over the use of a Red Card.  However, the fact remains, he is now judged to be out of place and a target for derision – much like the offside rule.

An FA official denied discrimination: ‘There is still racism and bigotry within football, but none of that is directed at the linesman – that’s what we have VAR for’.

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
