Just what the NFL needs -- a ref who bleeds all over the place every month.

Something has to be done about the NFL refs. The average age of a ref seems to be 1000+ any more which leads to all the mistakes.
I don't give a **** if a ref is male or female, as long as he/she is young enough to do a good job.

Say what?? Those 1000 year old refs saved the integrity of the game last season just when all appeared lost!!!

Probably won't be right to use the "Ref get off your knees, you're blowing the game" jeer, huh?

Looking at the pictures I think she could use some more development. Not bad looking though, if I were forced to, I wouldn't say no.

All things considered it is pretty amazing step for a woman. I can women refs in basketball as girls play basketball as there are women's hockey leagues to play in, baseball/softball very similar sports. But football, that's a pretty big leap for a woman to be involved with.

Look at the first two posts .... If you we're a woman would you want to participate with that kind of stupidity?
