Great move, no reason why female refs can’t do as good a job as a man.

I’d be worried, though, if my team’s game in Qatar was being refereed by a guy who apparently can’t tell the time when the weather’s a bit warm.

Yes, great move. The NBA has had female refs for 25 years now, yet so many other PRO male sports have yet to follow the lead. MLB, NHL have yet to hire a female official. Even the NFL has had a few female officials. I guess being surrounded and occasionally harassed by men and thousands of fans isn't a desirable career choice.

In the Middle East too
