Will the NFL Hire Its First Female Ref Soon?

Even if you don't know the difference between a tailback and a tailgate, you might like to know that the NFL may be on the verge of hiring its first woman referee.

From Sportsrageous.com:
NFL V.P. of Officiating Carl Johnson told Jane McManus of ESPN.com that he expects to hire a female official for the league.

Though Johnson doesn't publicly evaluate potential referees he stated that several women are currently under consideration to be hired, and that he expects to hire one to officiate in the NFL. "We have some in our pipeline, and I expect we’ll see it soon," Johnson said.

Of course, "soon" can mean next week, next year or next decade, but it's still kind of cool to think of men across America in face paint and backward baseball caps grumbling at a female ref for making a bad call, only to have the call stand after the instant replay. Or after the new NFL instant replay, whatever that is. Who cares! My point is, I'm all for women getting the chance to ref in the NFL if they have the talent and the dream. I am woman, hear me ref. Game on!

  1. Are you fucking kidding me? Can’t u dipshit feminist retards just leave football alone??? Women in sports is literally the most annoying shit on the planet. Its a joke. Anytime a woman is calling a college game ( football or basketball) I immediately change the channel. In fucking believable man. I’ve played minor league and arena football for 5 years and if I ever had a fcuking woman call pass interference on me knowing damn well she never played a down of football in her entire PC era life…I’d have a hard time not choking slamming the shit out of her little ass.seriosuly man women know JACK SHIT about football. Just leave it the fuck alone. Stop RUINING the NFL with ur chickenhead soap opera bullshit. It’s bad enough the NFL and ESPN has women commentating and analyzing games now you want to put some 5’5 105 pound slut in the middle of the game. The day that happens Is the day the NFL is officially a joke. Is already gotten extrememly PUSSIFYED over the years. This is such a fucking joke man. Un real man..un fucking real.

Seven tips for dealing with a jealous coworker

Look at you, doing so well at work! We're so happy for you. Well, most of us are happy for you and refuse to spend the entire work day talking behind your back. Let's talk about how to handle our jealous co-workers!Like every other professional, you've no doubt experienced your share of failures and successes. Lately, however, things seem to be going your way at work. And how! Perhaps you've managed to ace an important project this quarter, been instrumental in landing a huge client, earned some well-deserved rewards for this and that, or -- egads! -- been given a slight promotion or additional work responsibilities (e.g., the work responsibilities you actually want).You're quietly chuffed, but somehow your co-workers seem none too pleased with this rapid turn of events. Oh no, what should you do now?It's a workplace tale older than the disjointed last season of Mad Men. The playing field in the department was even, cozy and overall very friendly -- until so-an…

Employees Blame Technology For Slowing Them Down At Work

Do you feel like you're always working, but never getting very much done? If so, you're not alone. Too much technology, and too much red tape, keep slowing us down at work. But technology, and more of it, is supposed to make our lives easier! Too much technology, however, does not compute for employees. A new SAP/Knowledge@Wharton survey of almost 700 corporate employees finds a full 60% of respondents blame technology "for inhibiting their ability to meet strategic goals." Gee, anyone who has ever used the self-checkout line at the grocery store can tell you that. However, 40% surveyed said that looking for ways to simplify the technology has been "a low priority" for their company. Too much paperwork is an on-going problem for the workplace, too. A new ServiceNow survey of nearly 1,000 managers finds that 90% are doing too much administrative work, no matter the size of the company. This paperwork includes filling out forms, writing status updates, …

Is Your Co-worker Always Late For Work?

You've started the workday, but where is your co-worker? Oh, she's running late again, just like yesterday. And the day before. And the day before that. Let's get an early start on solving her tardiness problem, shall we? Working with someone who is consistently late is one of the most annoying aspects of office life, and also one of the most common, unfortunately. It's a universal theme of the workplace that everyone will get to work on time (give or take a few minutes...) except for the employee who is egregiously late nearly every day. And the excuses can get pretty amazing. Employees became more punctual as the Great Recession lingered, at least according to surveys. Everyone, that is, except for your able-bodied but habitually-tardy co-worker. It's bad enough dealing with tardiness when you're a manager, but it can be even more frustrating when you're a rank-and-file peer without any magical "shape up or ship out" managerial powers. So you…
