Brazilian Referee to Pose in PlayboyBy: Bob | June 19th, 2007
It has been quite the week for gender equity in the profession of soccer referees. The German football association announced that a 28-year-old female cop will be make history by becoming the first professional female referee in the country when she referees Bundesliga 2 games next season. Blown calls are not gender specific so I’m sure she’ll do just as poorly as the guys.
In equally progressive news, a 29-year-old referee in Brazil will be shedding her clothes for a Playboy spread. It is about time a female referee gets naked. Those Graham Poll centerfold pictures can keep us all excited for only so long.
Ana Paula de Oliveira is the referee who will be giving a red card to her clothes and raising the flags of readers. As you can see from her Web site and from the video below, she is not exactly the modest type.
Tip thanks to David at Culture of Soccer who, like all of us, buys Playboy for the articles.
