    FIRST FEMALE REF TO WORK THURSDAY NIGHT

    Excerpt: "Replacement refs made their debut last night in the Hall of Fame Game. Later this week, more history will be made.

    Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times reports Shannon Eastin will be part of the crew for Thursday’s Green Bay at San Diego game.

    Eastin, who has called college games in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, will be the first woman to work as an on-field official in any NFL game." Read more...

    Even as a pretty big individual rights guy, I'm not sure I like this.

    Ref's are getting mowed down all the time, and I fear that a lot of players would go out of their way to make a point while a lot of other players could be extra cautious to avoid someone they aren't even supposed to be paying attention to in the first place.
    Just my take.

    We have women in combat, and we're not comfortable with a women official in an NFL game?

    What else is there to reply to? That's good. Testing new refs. Everyone deserves equal opportunity.

    as long as she can recognize pass interference, she'll be an improvement over all the bozos seen thus far
