Yeah I don't see the problem with it as long as they are as good as the male refs.

Sure... why not?

*That was a terrible call... go back into the kitchen and make me a sammich*

I'm not opposed to it, the NBA has female refs. That said, I can see it getting ugly at the same time.

...why can't women just stay barefoot and in the kitchen?

J/K, of course. I guess it won't be as bad in football since you can't hear them too much.

Don't you just love it, though, when you hear a woman home plate umpire holler, "STEEEEEERIIIIIIIIIIIKKE!"

Sure why not, the guys might be playing more of a "flag Football" in skirts soon anyway the way the rules are changing.

Actually, it's kind of funny. If you look at the history of the rules:

History of NFL Rules

You'll see that things are "more hardcore" NOW than they were "back then"
in a lot of ways. Also? I've met people in skirts (most of whom were/are breast cancer warriors,) who were tougher than anybody on a football field.

Re: Kicking rule --

>>1974 ...kickoffs were moved from the 40- to the 35-yard line; <<

The 40 YARD LINE! Woooooo! Yeah, things were ROUGH AND TOUGH in them there old days!!!

I wonder if breast augmentation will slow the refs down?
But then again..............who cares?
