A girls youth soccer team was disqualified from a tournament in Nebraska last weekend because of multiple rule infractions, not because of one player’s appearance, according to the tournament director.
Omaha’s Azzurri Cachorros girls 11-and-under club team was not allowed to play in their semifinal game of the Springfield Invitational on Sunday. One of the players, 8-year-old Mili Hernandez, and others made national headlines when they claimed they were disqualified because tournament officials saw Hernandez’s short hair and thought she was a boy.
“I want her to know it wasn’t about her, ” the volunteer tournament director said of Hernandez. “I’ve got grandkids. I wouldn’t want somebody to do it to them when they play soccer.”
Burgett said multiple teams in the Azzurri organization, including Hernandez’s, had been accused of illegally sharing players during the tournament. He also said tournament organizers had received questions from parents of players from opposing teams about why the Azzurri girls 11-and-under team was allowed to use a boy.
In investigating both issues, Burgett noticed that the team’s official roster had Hernandez listed as a male. Azzurri director Mo Farivari told espnW that the mistake was made months ago when the organization’s registrar entered the players’ names into the Nebraska State Soccer Assn. system. No one had noticed until now.
The decision was made late Saturday to disqualify three Azzurri teams from the tournament. Burgett sent Farivari an email that night listing four reasons for the decision. Three of them had to do with the teams’ illegally sharing players; the other was having a boy playing for a girls team.
Burgett didn’t even know what Hernandez looked like at that point, he said, and that wouldn’t have mattered anyway. Gender issue aside, the team still had broken rules regarding the sharing of players, he said.
But Farivari isn’t buying it. He told espnW that his teams did share players during the tournament, but they’ve done such at the event in past years and have never been told the practice is against the rules.
“The only reason he disqualified them is because Mili looks like a boy and is listed [with] a typo on the roster, ” Farivari told espnW. “I went over this to clarify, but he didn’t want to listen.”
Since the story broke, Hernandez has received a lot of support. Soccer stars like Abby Wambach and Mia Hamm are among the many who sent the girl encouraging messages on social media. On Thursday, players from her team cut off portions of their hair to show solidarity with their teammate.
Meanwhile, Burgett is getting a different kind of attention, including death threats and intimidating phone calls.
“I’ve had angry parents, angry coaches when I’ve refereed, ” he said. “But I’ve never felt that I had to protect myself.”find people on social networks manage all of your social networks some critics argue that social networks are unhealthy social networks bad social networks data social networks ideas all of the following statements about social networks are true except: what is the most popular form of marketing on location based social networks? some critics argue that social networks are unhealthy social networks name of website and description what is the primary way that social networks work most popular social media networks social networks wikipedia iphone app to post to all social networks social networks for free social networks tools social networks popularity social and professional networks social networks and social support theory social networks map which of the following statements about adding social networks to hootsuite is false? black owned social media networks advantages and disadvantages of social networks apps to post to multiple social networks which of the following is characteristic of online social networks? social networks essay biggest social networks social networks blogs social networks for seo social media and networks mitchell duneier's work regarding social networks operates from which sociological perspective? social networks for entrepreneurs social impact of social networks check username on social networks life without social networks social networks for seniors social networks theory group formation in large social networks membership growth and evolution efficient algorithms for public-private social networks hootsuite supported social networks mapping social networks share to all social networks social networks in brazil social networks generate power through senior social networks names of social networks video game social networks social networks analysis and mining new social networks 2020 social physics: how social networks can make us smarter private social media networks social networks for gamers reverse email lookup social networks towards detecting anomalous user behavior in online social networks reverse email search for social networks old social networks job social networks social networks diagrams networks social definition social networks for meeting new friends social networks and health social networks offline list of popular social networks fishing social networks tb joshua talks about social networks social networks pros and cons social networks and our young generation bayesian learning in social networks how do groups and social networks differ? social networks kids the social networks movie social networks for couples microblogging consists of short messages exchanged on social media networks. social networks article secure social networks free social networks for adults problems with social networks
