Women referees…

What does everyone think about the introduction of women referees ?
It's a professional game. Players are going to try to influence the ref by any means they can get away with. I think female refs are more prone to getting intimidated.

Wait for the outcry when one starts crying on the field. Should be given a chance but only suitable for the mentally very strong one's.

My view, if they are qualified then give them a go. But as we found out in the QPS, qualifications don't necessarily mean that you can actually do the job. Our last female Commissioner had to resign because of the public backlash and no support from the rank and file.

Whether they're female or male isn't the issue, the issue is if they're are not up to it then they shouldn't be in first grade..
If Kasey Badger is soley picked in 1st grade because she is female and they're trying to appease the female sector/ gender equality, they are actually doing a disservice to her and all females, you should only be promoted to 1st grade if you are one of the best whether female or male..

It looked like she lost control of the situation then lashed out with sin-binnings. No reason there shouldn't be female refs but I'm not sure Kasey Badger has the right temperament.
