First she was considered for the job, then she was offered the job.  Line judge Sarah Thomas became the first full-time female official, hired by the NFL (along with 8 male officials).  Pretty groundbreaking stuff.

' "Sarah Thomas is the true pioneer," said Mike Pereira, the NFL's former director of officials.  "If a hat and lanyard and a shirt are going into the Hall of Fame in Canton, it ought to be hers." '  news link

It appears she's qualified, experienced, and equally capable of the position, --even good at it.  I'm all for this kind of hiring.

Principle in the type:  "So each time a person decides to wait for 'time to change things,' he or she is actually waiting for other people to change his or her fortunes.”  Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
