NFL To Use First-Ever Female Referee (http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2012/08/06/nfl-to-use-first-ever-female-referee/)

The current NFL referee lockout is providing an interesting opportunity for one replacement referee.

For the first time in league history, a woman will work an NFL game as part of the officiating crew.

That hurts whether you're a man or a woman. Most jobs have hazards. Most employees know what they are before beginning those jobs. I'm all for letting people make up their own minds about whether they wish to risk those hazards.

Sure, but if a 50 plus overweight man can handle it, so can a woman.

All I'm going to say is Mr. Physics dictates that mass matters. Do with that what you will. I have nothing further to add.
