Soccer team apologizes for filling out stadium stands with sex dolls

Is it unusual to think that a football club buying 200 sex dolls didn’t raise an eyebrow with accounting?
Or worse, perhaps they were renting 200 sex dolls.

Were they cupping the balls?

As a prank, this sucks. (Or blows?)

Oh, they weren’t inflatables.

But is this why they are called MANnequins?

I think the Arsenal squad were more diverse than that entire crowd scene.

I’m looking at the photos on CNN, and honestly I’m thinking “really”? I mean, I can see that they might be, and I can believe that maybe in person it is more obvious, but anyone who looks at those photos and thinks it is “obvious” they are adult toys probably just recognizes the make and model. Of course I can’t read the signs, but that could be a much stronger argument. The denials seem a bit off, with CNN reporting: ‘Staff “went through the confirmation process that they were not adult products several times…”’ Um, sure. If you have to check whether your mannequins are adult toys several times maybe you are doing something wrong?

Man, I went to a bad place with this one (I think primarily based on your first pic):

Guess there are a lot worse options than expensive sex dolls…

There were only thirty mannequins, and it seems that the club didn’t pay anything for them.

In some cases, kicking people’s balls is OK.

@Les_Pane: Seems others take our kicks where they find them!

Very good to know there’s an abundance of balls humor. Glad we haven’t sacked the art of a good ball joke.

Meanwhile in Germany, Borussia Mönchengladbach have asked fans to buy cardboard cutouts of themselves to be put in the stands:

I wonder if they will be asking TSG Hoffenheim for advice on piping in crowd noise?
