NFL Makes History With It's First Female Referee
by Johnny Scott,posted Aug 7 2012 10:44AM
Say hello to Shannon Eastin. She will be officiating the pre-season football game between the Green Bay Packers and the San Diego Chargers this Thursday night in prime time. It will be the first time an NFL game has had a woman on the field as a referee. Shannon is currently a college referee who has worked in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, and is working as one of the replacement officials who have been locked out by the league.
We'll see if Shannon Eastin has what it takes to be an NFL referee Thursday night around 7:00pm on ESPN. Of course most of us will be watching the Saints against the New England Patriots.
