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]
