First Female NFL Referee?

Sarah Thomas says she didn't start out to break a gender barrier, but the 39-year-old referee would do just that if she's offered a job with the NFL.  She'd become the first woman to officiate full-time with the league.

It's not certain whether she'll get the job; at this point, she has only auditioned for it, helping referee a preseason game between the Oakland Raiders and the New Orleans Saints.  But we'd love to hear your opinion about the possibility of a woman officiating full-time in the NFL.
