British referee got suspended after telling players to kick paper etc.

A British soccer referee has been suspended for a "moment of madness" after he asked two team captains to play rock, paper, scissors to decide a kickoff.


David McNamara asked the two sportswomen to take part in the playground game ahead of a Women's Super League (WSL) match in October because he found himself without a coin to flip.


The incident, which fell afoul of the sport's regulatory body, the Football Association (FA), occurred on October 26 at Manchester City's home game against Reading. Manchester City captain Steph Houghton found herself in the bizarre situation alongside visiting captain Kirsty Pearce.


Steph Houghton, who is the captain for both Manchester City and England, was one of the players involved.


Joanna Stimpson, the women's refereeing manager for the FA, told The Times newspaper that that the mistake was a "moment of madness."


She said: "The referee forgot his coin and in that moment, in a TV game, he was really pushed for time.


"He should have been more prepared, he should have had a coin. It was disappointing, it's not appropriate, it's very unprofessional."
