First Female Ref in NFL History Will Call Chargers Game

We have replacement refs taking scene this season and the first female referee in NFL history will make her debut this Thursday in the Chargers-Packers game. Shannon Eastin has called college games in the Mid-Eastern Athletic conference. This Thursday we will get our first look at the Bolts and our first look at the replacement refs.

    hopefully she can do a better job then the refs did last night sheesh

  • #TheBoltFather

    If she has an inadvertent whistle though…… Let the “female official blows it too early” jokes start.

  • Russell Grant

    Well I think she can’t do worse than the refs that used to do the SDSU/BYU games in Provo. Talk about homers. And it’s not like we haven’t been jobbed by the regular NFL ref. I’m sure she’ll do just fine

  • ChargerGirl Cindi

    This is awesome. Think about it. We have Mathews! He will wink at her and if the defense touches him it’s a penalty against them. I like it!

  • Pete Spinning

    Any official not named Hochuli is a step in the right direction, if you ask me. Good for the gals on this one. Hope she makes good calls.Talk about pressure.

    I think it’s great Hochuli will team with her to protect him from any bad calls. You know people are going to give her flack anyway. But actually I think a fresh pair of good eyes will be great for the game, and new to the pro game will mean she’s done her homework very well and will be prepaired to make good judgement calls. I’d just hate to be her after a game with the other refs.
