Linespeople sign now

This petition is on behalf of all football fans who have become insensed with the so called 'Referee's Assistants' formally know as Linesman.

Due to equalities Linesman were renamed as Referee's Assistants, to include the introduction of female assitants, which is totally justified.

However on behalf of football fans I would like to as The FA to reconsider this title and simply name them as linespeople, for the following reasons.

The English dictionary defines an assistant as "someone who helps someone else to do a job".
This is clearly not the case when it comes to linespeople, as the simply follow the decision of the referee. How many times do we see a linesperson not give a decision until the referee has, or will change the way they flag to follow the referees decision.
It is for this reason I ask for the change, until a time where the referees are assisted by the forenamed.
