    no because we see some of the male refs get run over ,I sure wouldn't want that to happen to female ref.

    If that is your only concern... considering that a ref should know what he's (or SHE) is getting into... then I would say let them if they are still willing to do the job.

    I see nothing wrong with a female Ref. Would hate to see a smaller female Ref get plowed over by a 350 lb Lineman though

    Why wouldn't she be? Lots of women watch football, myself included. As long as she knows the rules and doesn't show favoritism to one team or the other, she'll do just as well as the male refs.

    I think most of us agree that they are qualified to do the job but most of us think about their safety on the field and getting injured.How is your view on that possibility?

    Yeah, she could possibly get injured, considering the size of the men she'll be surrounded with, but she knows that. If she took the job, then she knows the risks. Lots of women work in dangerous professions because it's what they want to do.

    I agree if they want to take that risk I'm happy for them ,let them referee in the NFL.

    She might do well. U can chase a woman and act the fool to get her. A woman may save your life in the E R. So chance and change

    Women need to build up the family.

    A simple division of labor worked for centuries.

    Yes, and then so many men stopped holding up their end of the bargain that we had to do both jobs. How unfortunate for the knuckledraggers out there that women decided to stop letting themselves be used as punching bags.
  • Daryl Linnster 2012/08/08 01:31:37

    A man who does not provide is not a 'knuckledragger' he is called a modern man.

    Guys who thump their women and don't pay the bills are frequently registered democrats.

    Well, when the old-fashioned men reappear, so will the old-fashioned women.

    I'm sure you've asked all of the men who thump their women what party they're registered with.

    That's because people are embarassed to have them on their bumpers.

    They don't steal bumper stickers here in NY. They're manly men - they take the whole car.
  • Daryl Linnster 2012/08/08 01:46:27

    Um no. The home of the nanny state is not made up of manly men.

    The average New Yorker (city) does not even own a car.

    New York has a few real men but they usually work in uniform and commute to the suburbs after their shift.

    It's virtually impossible to own a car in Manhattan. Nowhere to park onthe street and monthly garage is more than I pay in maintenance for my co-op. Besides, there's all sorts of transportation wherever you turn.

    I must agree with you on the real men of New York City. I tip my hat to them every day for keeping us safe.

    If they lose the game, they can always feel better by having group sex in the locker rooms with the referee. Have a separate locker room for the gay players to go to.

    Why should the gay players not be separated? They might go both ways though.

    I am sure that many women know the game far better than I, despite my having played it for years.... that is not the point, which is political correctness, and the continuing feminization of our culture.

    Feminization? You sound insane, honestly.

    Why are you obsessed with gender roles. Let people make their own career choices. This has nothing to do with political correctness and the feminization stuff sounds like pure bull.
