to play football, not to play trumpet
Jello Wrestle... And two more: Oil Wrestle...
I already used wrestle, so thats not more words. That's using the same word.
Her boyfriend must have gone at it with all of BYU's soccer team. HAHA ITS BYU, a Mormon school.
KY wrestling Old School style. Your my boy blue.
Were the refs blind? How the hell did she not get thrown out? Jesus.
last straw for me. The rest wasn't terrible (the thrown down was pretty bad).
It all started from that little elbow and then she went berserk. I hope that she loses her scholarship for this.
I can understand that the umpires might have missed one or at the most two of those incidents but it should have warranted a yellow card (sorry I'm not a soccer fan and don't understand the rules) and then getting thrown out of the game.
Maybe she will learn her lesson after getting her name blasted all over ESPN. I'm glad BYU won. That is always the best revenge.
This might be an upgrade for us.
Frankly she's a better fit for Dantonio's philosophy.
She would be the meanest SOB on our defense
Not saying I endorse the player's actions, but other than the hairpull and the punch at the end, the other plays seemed within the bounds of acceptable play. Note: I am not saying they were legal. They were hard and dirty fouls most of which would warrant a yellow or red card. However, they are the types of fouls that happen during the course of many games.
Given the number of fouls committed by the same player I can't comprehend how she was not ejected.
were off the ball which is very tough to catch as an official. I was a ref for soccer for many years and this stuff is very hard to catch as the older kids are very good at doing being discrete about it.
But I do agree that she should have been carded out of the game much sooner for things on the ball.
Hey, doesn't she play football for the Gators?
Urban Meyer would just make her sit in the corner for 5 minutes to think about what she did
Apparently she just made it a half hour on her own. What a mensch.
Man, you'd wake up battered, bruised, and dominated after a night with her. Jesus.
You say that like it's a bad thing.
Those BYU girls are pretty hot...
Deadspin (NOT an endorsement as I personally hate the site) called the whole ordeal "hot."
The SEC conference today announced it was publicly reprimanding the MWC officials from yesterday's BYU/UNM game for their non calls. Mike Silve was quoted as stating "We've just got to make sure we have our bases covered as well as everyone else's bases."
And the Big Ten suspended her for all of this Saturday's football games. Don't mess with Charlie.
Then Rich Rodriguez made her an honorary captain for Wisconsin.
i plus banged that to offset the negbang. all is well in the world.
some people either cant detect sarcasm or really cant take Anything negative when it comes to rr
I've played a good deal of soccer (let the jokes fly) and I still play in men's rec leagues. I've ran across some dirty players, but I can't think of any that were so focused on causing injury. This girl has some serious issues.
Yeah, a linesman could've (and should've) made a call.
Agreed. When it comes to illegal rough play, you can call that from anywhere that you see it. The hair wrestling moves at least. The hard slides maybe not so much, but that was just one play out of 7 or so.
don't have the authority to stop play. They can throw their flag up if they spot something but the referee needs to sound the whistle. In any case they should conference with the ref when the play is stopped if they saw something. I'm sure they did throw their flag up for the tackles and hard fouls on the ball.
However, They might not have seen the fouls off the ball. It's easy to get away with dirty play off the ball on a field that big. This girl is a pro. She knows how to make hard on the ball fouls that aren't bad enough to warrant an ejection and she apparently knows when she's out of the view of the officials for playing dirty.
is that so much of these things were caught on camera, in isolation. I mean, this is not the football game of the week where you have a zillion cameras to keep track of absolutely everything. This is a second round WAC women's soccer tournament game, and yet we have seeming hi-def close-ups of all these little after-the-play skirmishes (and nasty yank-by-the-hair throwdowns) as if it were Man.U-Arsenal or Germany-Argnetina.
The MWC has their own network "The Mountain" just like the BTN. Given the need/desire to have real content to fill its hours, it probably viewed Thursday semi-final games as a great chance to put on some live sports.
OK, so you now have the game and as they are filming, someone is catching this (maybe there was some history, maybe the director realized after the first push/punch incident that this could be a developing story) decides to iso on her for the rest of the game.) Then, when cutting the package, someone says "Hey, I bet this would get on the WWL if we sent them the package with a head's up" and so they send it along, and sure enough, there's footage, courtesy of the Mountain, which has now gone viral.
It's not like this ruined New Mexico's sports year. It's just sort of one more thing for the Lobos this year.
What? All coaches punch their assistants. All women's soccer players throw girls down by their hair.
If the narrative is that there is violence, the game narrative is violence. There was a clip of a scoring opportunity. The girl did most of it when around the ball (punches and wrestling moves). It becomes the game story when it's that blatant and repetitive. I've got no problem with the Mountain putting that clip set together.
"All coaches punch their assistants."
It is my belief that someone at the Oakland Raiders' facility just read your comment and nodded knowingly.
We now have some clips straight from the game itself which I think give rise to the idea that it was, in fact, the dominant narrative of the game itself.
has a great future as a coach!
"Everybody murders, everybody steals" etc., etc.
What a bitch.
She ripped some other girl down by her hair. I don't have long hair, but damn I bet that hurts.
Totally agreed that she is a bitch.
However, I wear a ponytail 9 days out of 10, and I suspect what hurt most was not the hair/scalp but the yanking at her neck (and the sudden hard contact with the ground). A ponytail getting yanked isn't like when a random hank of hair gets pulled. It pretty much will pull your whole head back (and get you dropped to the ground if E. Lambert is doing the pulling) BUT you don't feel it in your scalp so much. Still a dirty-ass move, and probably dangerous to boot, but it wasn't hair pain you have to try to imagine.
*cue 'The More You Know' graphic*
A friend pointed out that Ms. Lambert will be dealing with this every time a future employer googlesearches her. Nice.
What baffles me is what others have said. Why didn't the linesmen do anything? It's near impossible to miss most of that stuff, the linesmen are supposed to watch for off the ball stuff. That chick is crazy.....
I need her number.
Everybody does... kills people, murders people, steals from me, steals from you, pulls people down by the hair, punches people in the head, punches people in the back...
True. Maybe TP will wear her name and number in his eye makeup this week.
"This is in no way indicative of my character or the soccer player that I am."
ummmm.........yes it is.
Seems like the girl might draw some pretty severe punishment.
Their media guide says she's a junior. With the risk of further negative attention for the university, it seems like she definitely shouldn't be back on the team next year, and who knows if she'd be back at UNM.
I almost passed over this thread, because....well, it's about women's soccer for crying out loud. However, I took a chance, thinking that I might see something cool like a slap fight or something. Needless say I was disappointed in the lack of slap fights, but HOLY MOTHER OF G*D, how is that #15 chick from NM still allowed to play collegiate athletics!? That woman should be an "enforcer" in the NHL!
that had to tell her she was suspended? Are they still able to walk? That was most definitely hot though. I think the grudge match should be on PPV. She's pretty tough, maybe the BYU girl can have a partner and make it a special "three-way" match??
Don't worry, they shook hands after Danny Hope introduced them to one another.
"Ban this girl..she obsiously has more issues than the Enquirer..so beyond the soccer. "your're not in middle school anynore", Dorothy..if if you want to pick fights go to Oakland, CA or Ohio! you may just get more than you bargained for. Soccer has a higher standard...you're a low-life!"
OAKLAND OR OHIO!
For risking life, limb and sanity and went to the ESPN message board. You, my man, are one brave, brave soul. Kudos to you!
If I could count on action like this.
But I always wanted to know: How do soccer players know to just lie there when they get the slightest contact? That always bothered me. The woman got her pony-tail pulled. She wasn't shot.
Soccer is definitely the most under-officiated game in the world. The only sure way to draw the one referee's attention is to be super-dramatic about every tiny bit of contact, especially on plays away from the ball. It's responsible for all of the ridiculous flopping and candyass grab-shin-and-roll acting that happens at every level of the game. It works, and consequently they go so far as to emphasize it in practices. Much like MLB and replay, soccer stubbornly refuses to add officials, and the quality of play suffers. Until this is fixed Soccer will continue to be a laughingstock to Americans, whose other major sports usually have 5-6 officials and sometimes instant replay to make sure calls get done right (not that it always works, but at least we try).
I think you are correct about the over exaggerated flopping and the European-esque hand gestures seen after fouls.
However, just my e-pinion, I think soccer is a more physically demanding sport than baseball. I don't share the same sentiment when it comes to soccer being a laughing stock.
"However, just my e-pinion, I think soccer is a more physically demanding sport than baseball. I don't share the same sentiment when it comes to soccer being a laughing stock."
There is absolutely no doubt about that. Soccer players have to run the length of a football field + 10 yards for 90 minutes with only a 20 minute break (or so) for halftime. Comparatively, every sport, with the exception of basketball and Aussie Rules Football, looks like golf.
I should have added, baseball also has double headers. Other sports cannot do that because the level of play will drop off significantly because players are beat after one game.
At some point it's the coach's responsibility to get a player out of the game when they've become a liability. She had at least 3 fouls that should have drawn an automatic red card and forced New Mexico to be a player down in a competitive game. No excuse for these types of actions, but it should have been clear to the sideline that she was doing the team more harm than good.
That chick reminds me of my buddy's girlfriend. Always whooping on him and getting all rough.
Wait, that was my girlfriend.
she doesn't even have big boobs. Why are you wasting my time?
...for putting that up. Sad to say but that really made my day.
Maybe we should grab some Purdue hair.
that Bob Probert has an illegitimate daughter living in New Mexico.
As someone posted, she was suspended. She said her emotions
got to her in the game, I guess it was sociopathic rage.
Ouch. Apparently I made a very disgusting comment. I am really sorry about that. I was trying to be funny and going for shock value, and I ended up being offensive. Plus it is rather disrespectful toward women and Mormons, the area where the two groups overlap notwithstanding. I am really sorry for upsetting anyone.
