A WA football club president is facing action after making a series of sexist Facebook posts.

Cervantes Tiger Sharks president Dale Simmons labeled Eleni Glouftsis a “dopey mole [sic]” on Facebook after she became the first AFL field umpire on the weekend.

Glouftsis' umpiring debut was met with mostly-positive feedback, but Simmons took to social media to post the following:

"Failed to pay a mark to Mutimer in the first quarter less than 10 m away from her with clear view. Does the dopey mole know that you are allowed to take it one handed if you want?"

The post followed a similarly sexist rant previously made by the president, where he suggested AFLW athletes should be working in the canteen.

“They should get the same as the men $25.13 per hour working for Mustard Catering selling hot dogs and pies and a bit more on Sunday,” he wrote.

The WA Football Commission has acknowledged the posts and will decide on disciplinary action.

“In what has been a milestone year for female football, it is extremely disappointing to hear that such unacceptable comments have been made,” a WAFC spokesman said.

“The WAFC is discussing the matter with the WA Country Football League to ensure the appropriate action is taken and a clear message is sent that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated.”
