Football Player On The NFL’s First-Ever Female Ref: “Deal With It”

“Female, male, dog, cat, as long as they’re calling the right calls and they know what they’re doing out there, it really doesn’t matter. It’s a person. She’ll see the same things as a man. She knows how to blow the whistle the same way. It’s going to be something weird to see, but you deal with it and just roll.”

This was Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley speaking in regards to Shannon Eastin, who last night, became the first-ever woman to referee an NFL game. Yup, history was made. I haven’t seen a plague of locusts descending yet, so I think everyone is going to be okay! [Fox Sports]
