2.Bundesliga player insults female ref, forced to ref girls’ game
Lessons are sometimes better learned with a dash of creativity, and Fortuna Dusseldorf certainly had a trick up its sleeve when it punished player Kerem Demirbay.
Demirbay, 22, received a pair of yellow cards from female referee Bibi Steinhaus during a match against FSV Frankfurt on Nov. 29.

As he was dismissed, he told Steinhaus that women have no place in football. He later publicly apologized, dismissing it as the error of a young player.
And in addition to Demirbay’s league-issued suspension and fine, Fortuna decided he’d serve an additional punishment. This one showed that women very much have a place in the game.
An actual game.From WhoAteAllThePies.TV:
Bravo. And we love his “referee’s uniform”.
