Unless she wears a skimpy uniform, I'm not interested.

WhippingBoy: Carn: Can't wait for the misogyny when she screws up a call.  "ermagherd, refs were flawless until this damn woman came and farked it all up!"

Yeah, because if there's one thing sports fans are tolerant of, it's when male refs make a bad call.


I'm pretty sure there will be a significant number of retards who will shout even more loudly when this lady inevitably messes up a call and it will be fun to watch.

Yes, "refs are flawless" is something I often hear sports fans say. It will definitely be misogyny, and not at all treating her the exact same way they treat make refs when they start threatening her on Twitter.

It's going to be like online games. She'll be subjected to the same unreasonable pseudo-hate and abuse that male refs have endured since time immemorial, and Social Justice Warriors and Internet White Knights will be wringing their hands and loudly lamenting about "misogyny", all the while conveniently ignoring that venting about a ref is pretty much status-quo.

autofire372: Cool. Can a female MLB umpire be next, please?

/she can replace Angel Hernandez


MLB umpires aren't allowed to change their minds, she would have a real hard time with that one.  Also, she would have to get used to carrying a ball sack.

The only time NFL refs have ever been beloved and flawless was when they were on strike and the scab refs were farking up.

Not a brawl. Some SJW out "slumming" at the local bar will pull out his Macbook, hook up to the bar's wifi, and write a new blog entry to show how Outraged he is.

Not to be mean, but I actually wanted to see how it would go if those scabs stayed in at least as far as the playoffs before the reg. refs returned.  I don't take sports as serious as I used to and wanted it to lead to some very epic stuff.  I think we would've got our first on the job shooting in the NFL when one of the Dallas Cowboys shoots a ref on the field during a game.  You got to admit, for one brief moment the whole country would be a Cowboy fan if that would've happened.

Women refs ruined the NBA

The NBA brought on a woman ref, and a couple years later Michael Jordan retired.

And then there was that whole 9/11 thing not too longer after that.

the language will probably change.  from the normal torture hate language to torture hate rape language.  although, i'm pretty sure i've seen people recommend that male refs get raped too... so, i guess nothing will change.

Dateline:  July 11th, 2013.  Radical agenda to encroach upon traditional bastions of masculinity proceeds as scheduled.  Agonized shrieks of our enemies are glorious to behold.  Will continue to monitor the situation.

Recommend that we accelerate preparations for Operation: Female Place Kicker.  Also recommend that we upgrade audio system at Feminist HQ to hear wailing and gnashing of teeth magnified ten thousandfold.  Note:  buy more popcorn.

If a player commits an infraction in one of her dreams, does he get called on it in real life?

dickfreckle: If a player commits an infraction in one of her dreams, does he get called on it in real life?


Or if a player commits a penalty in Week 1, will she refuse to throw a flag, instead quietly holding a grudge until Week 12, when the finally loses it and throws him out of the game with a dramatic "if you don't know what you did, I'm not going to tell you" explosion?

There will be mysogeny when she misses a call in equal parts to the *huzzah she is a HERO(ine) for womyn everywhere"  celebrations from the opposite end of the derp spectrum. Hopefully she'll mostly just do her damned job and be as invisible as possible on the field.

You mean someone else than Seth Meyers gets their material from FARK?  It's why I gave up SNL, Seth's jokes are like reading FARK threads only with less funny punch lines.  It's old material by the time he does it.

How much less could you care? Just curious.

One July 4th, my then-girlfriend and I were supposed to spend the morning cleaning the apartment we'd just moved out of. Bu my friend invited us over for the usual beer and grilling you do on the 4th. She said, in a sweet voice, "Go ahead and hang out. I'll finish up the cleaning!" This set off my Spidey-sense, and I repeatedly told her that I can always party later in the day. "Nah, go ahead! It's fine."

And this, fellow Farkers, is where I made the critical mistake known as "It's fine!" is never actually fine, even when said with a smile.

After a week or so I thought, "hmmm, maybe I dodged the bullet."

Fast foward about 10 months. In a small and completely unrelated argument, she brings up my not helping cleaning on the 4th...at top volume. I remember mulling my options. Do I point how absurd it is for her to basically tell me to hang out with my friends only to be irrationally angry almost a year later? Or do I just sit here and absorb a half-hour litany and apologize?"

I chose...wisely. And that, fellow Farkers, is why I still have a penis.
