    What do they do? Ask the male refs questions the whole game?

    "Why doesn't that guy with the ball just run around the guy that tackled him?"

    "How come some of those guys are so fat?"

    I have a feeling this thread will not go in the direction the OP had intended.

    only if they are wearing lingerie and are hot
    otherwise GTFO, I can't wait till the 1st woman official makes a bad call that costs a team a game. Can you imagine the sh*tstorm that will ensue?

    Using female replacement refs only gives the real refs more leverage in the negatiations. Terrible move by the NFL.

    one of the male replacement officials was apparently recently fired from the Lingerie Football League so maybe the experienced female official isn't that bad

    Besides, just about any of them are better than Ed Hochilli or Ron Winter IMO

    Vrentas shows that some females clearly understand the game. Jenny stands head and shoulders above some of her male counterparts in the media. Not sure why officials would be any different.

    The NBA has had female officials for a long time now.

    and remember that their officials are professional officials not the part time insurance salesmen, high school assistant principals and used car salesmen that the NFL employs to officiate their multi billion dollar industry

    The male refs haven't exactly shown to be anything to write home about, so why not? And until they start using full-time professionals (and then of course there still won't be anything either), there's nothing they can really use to argue against it.

    look at the bright side, players will be a lot less likely to commit penalties if they know they'll have to hear a woman tell them about it after the play

    I have no doubts about a female official's knowledge of the game. Only thing that I would see as a risk is the potential controversy if a player runs into a female official or talks smack to her like they do the male officials. I'd just rather not have to listen to any of that junk.

    That said, it's only a POTENTIAL risk, so it's not a big deal right now.
