Why can’t Labour do this to Trademe Trev?

The Wellington Phoenix have shown somewhat more balls than Labour’s invisible leadership:

The person engaged to do live match updates on the Wellington Phoenix’s Twitter account has been red-carded by club officials after some distasteful tweeting during Sunday’s A-League victory over Gold Coast United.

Some tweets, best described as edgy, pushed the boundaries for a club’s official account, but others stepped over the mark with sexual references that several followers regarded as highly inappropriate.

One post in particular, involving a save by goalkeeper Mark Paston, had a strong sexual theme while others were in bad taste.

“Pav was sent through by Ifill – he had a couple of bites of the cherry like he was at a prom. It fell to Ward who eventually scored.”

“Lia is filling his boots at LB [left back]. Meanwhile, Lochead (sic) is filling his pants at home.”

Tony Lochhead missed the game through illness.

Among those offended were former Phoenix chief executive Tony Pignata, who tweeted: “Phoenix Twitter person makes the club look very amateur. Bad, bad look … no need for that type of humour.”

    National would love to get rid of Trev, your attack team of Brownless and Tolley in the house will be out manoeuvred this year

    Wake wakey Phutwit. Trevs not even in the same class as Brownlie and Tolley. And if he can’t handle the B Team he is hardly going to even register as significant against the A Team of Hekia and Crusher.

    • Concur. Mallard was up against Tolley in Education and couldn’t get anything on her then. He is pants now.
