Ex-Raiders CEO Amy Trask: I Want First Female NFL Ref Booed Just Like Male Refs

Former Oakland Raiders CEO and first ever female CEO in NFL history Amy Trask wrote via The MMQB that she wants Sarah Thomas, who is set to become the NFL’s first ever female referee in the upcoming 2015 season, to be “booed as loudly and as resoundingly as her male colleagues are booed” in order to honor the gender equality she now has.

When Sarah Thomas throws a flag she shouldn’t have thrown—which she will, as all officials do—she should be booed. When Sarah Thomas fails to throw a flag she should have—which she will, as all officials do—she should be booed. Sarah Thomas should be booed as loudly and as resoundingly as her male colleagues are booed.

Gender equality means gender equality. And if gender equality is the expectation, all consequences that flow therefrom must be accepted, whether one likes them or not.
