Granted, yes. The outfits are a bit on the sexist side, not even counting the disproportionate models.

Rant: [On] Off
Opinions like this irritate me to no end. Look at that picture. If you honestly believe that is an accurate portrayal of average male physique (or even average "soccer" player physique!) then you must be living in a dream (or a Porno production studio). There is absolutely nothing sexist about the image - it's just an idealized portrayal of both genders - and is obviously subjective in its vision of "ideal". It's getting pretty tiring having "Sexist" applied to everything that shows attractive (IMO) women and yet the blatantly unrealistic men are ignored as if the norm is to be some huge hulking sculpted piece of man flesh. As a somewhat attractive (lololol) man myself, the hypocritical statements get pretty wearing.

Anyway, it is sad how little people know about copyrights and it's good to see people respecting them.

Idealization often is sexist and demeaning in nature. So, its a sexist idealized portrayal of both males and females. I find both to be insulting.

Ah well, if you looked that way I suppose you wouldn't be offended.

Double XP when the English or French win? Hell of a time to introduce that. But Deutschland is looking very strong, so that's a smart bet. And no, @ above commenters on sexism, soccer players do not look like that... but honestly, some of the guys from Ghana and the Netherlands are pretty close. Defenders are getting bigger every year.
