    I know some members on here are a little unsure of having a female ref, but remember, it wasn't that long ago that female reporters were considered taboo

    I'm surprised it took this long. The differences between having an innie and an outie have been reconciled in most work places. I can't imagine any scenario where female eyes won't catch the same thing male eyes do.
    As long as the quality of the game doesn't suffer I don't care if fish officiate!

    Yeah...I don't care. If she can call the game, (and let's face it, the bar hasn't been set real high by the real and male officials) I wouldn't care if that ref was part horse and part mermaid. Bring 'er on ...let's see what she can do.

    Exactly.

    She is qualified, and more than deserving of this shot. I don't think it's a huge deal, but it is a cool side-story. I seriously wish the best for her.

    *puts old timey monopoly eye glass thing on*
    "I believe this here woman is completely incapable of coherent ....things officials are required to be capable of...and it's due to her inferior female brain... you see, the female brain is built for cooking, not logical man thinking...(drinks tea)."

    ^ was that the NFL's idea on female refs.... 3 months ago? :eek:
