    I think Shannon will do a fine job and I'd like to see more of it. I do think that all home AFC games, the officials should wear the official AFL official uniforms. :confused:

    When women were granted the right to vote, it was a cynical play by our rulers to crush labor strikes which were threatening to unseat them. They simply made the vote even less meaningful than it already was and took a lot of steam out of the working class uprisings. So while I think even above merit, the shunned should have access to equality, this looks like a union busting PR move. Could backfire though if she f's up and the major demographic goes Archie Bunker.

    Packers shorten practice due to injuries

    Maybe 90 guys still isn’t enough.
    A year after training-camp rosters grew by 10 spots from 80, some teams don’t have enough healthy bodies for their one-a-day practices.
    According to Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Packers cut their practice time to one hour and 45 minutes on Monday.
    Nearly 10 percent of the roster has been scratched for Thursday night’s game at San Diego, the biggest name belonging to receiver Greg Jennings, who has a concussion.
    Left tackle Marshall Newhouse also has a concussion, but he hasn’t been scratched, yet.
    Two more Packers went down during the shortened practice: cornerback Sam Shields (elbow) and running back Brandon Saine (hamstring).
    Though McCarthy can reduce practice time all he wants, he still needs to put 11 guys on the field for every snap during the four preseason games. The first one comes in only two days.

    I think this is cool. Some people are worried a woman could get hurt. I am not worried.
    Any ref could get hurt. Roller derby is dangerous. This is not dangerous.
    Equal rights, beetches.

    I wish her the best.
    She seems to realize the pressure of all eyes being on her...
    I'm always sympathetic when someone is in a situation like this,
    because they carry an extra burden: If one of the male refs makes
    a horrible call, no one's going to assert:
    "See? That just proves that men aren't fit to be refs!!"
    but if SHE has a bad day, mama mia, 20 years 'til the next gal gets a chance.
