Another fantastic storyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ sorry that todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s second post is footy related as well.
I read that Mike Riley (premier league football ref) sent of Reading FCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mascot in a recent game against Newcastle as apparently his shirt was distracting the linesman! The issue related to the mascot wearing the home shirt and fact he was in the linesmanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s line of sight.
All good fun you may thinkÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ but no no noÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ the Football Association has announced an inquiry into what happened. Overkill shocker from the FA! Pity they didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have such an inquiry before, during and after the last World Cup when England played so badly.
Mike Riley Gets Tough with Fluffy Lion Mascot
I hear the Newcastle AND the Reading fans cheered the mascot as he trudged off the field.
