Oliveira was banned for three games for mistakenly disallowing at least one
goal during a Copa Brasil match in May, and has not been called up for any top
league matches since. The mistake contributed to debate in Brazil about the
presence of female officials at top games.
Fellow lineswoman Aline Lambert told the same Friday edition of the paper that
posing nude "is incompatible with the profession".
Columnist and former World Cup referee Jose Wright said it would now be
difficult for Oliveira to become a referee.
But Oliveira said in an Internet chat on Futebol no Interior (Football in the
Outback) Web site she was still hoping to be a referee in future World Cup
tournaments. She said her mother had told her to accept the Playboy deal. Local
media estimate the deal would earn her nearly $250,000.
