The Iranian women's soccer team should all just wear these:
Chivu (Inter Milan) - www.cotidianul.ro...
Cech (Chelesa) - www.justsoccerjerseys.com...
Helmets... headscarfs... close enough right?
If anything I see it as nobility. The women put the faith they believe in above a passion they succumb to.
2 - Iranian regime wants to be an example for Muslims worldwide.
I expected better of you!
You are so quick to defend a population / race / creed and stand out against hatred in so many other threads yet you immediately tar all followers of football (not soccer ;-) ) as intellectually handicapped?
That is a very poor generalisation, of course you get your troglodytes who can't tell their arse from their elbow but the majority of people that attend the games (especially in England) are actually well educated people going to watch their team that they have supported since childhood.

Would it honestly affect your enjoyment of the game if you saw someone playing whilst wearing a headscarf or a crucifix? It's nothing to do with you or me what a person's religion is or how they express it, so long as when they do their job they do it as required, a hijab, crucifix or whatever other religious garb or icon shouldn't be prohibited unless it directly affects the game in anyway, something which will not happen with a thin piece of clothes tied around a persons hair.
