Former female NFL executive says she hopes fans “boo” the first female official

Should Sarah Thomas be booed by the fans when she makes a mistake?

Should Sarah Thomas be booed by the fans when she makes a mistake?

Amy Trask was an executive for the Oakland Raiders from 1997 to 2013, and now the former executive wrote a true message for MMQB.com in regards to equality. Trask wrote that the true measure of equality will come when Thomas is badgered and hounded the way every other official in the NFL is.

“When Sarah Thomas throws a flag she shouldn’t have thrown—which she will, as all officials do—she should be booed,” Trask wrote. “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.”

So football fans, I have a question.  Is she just being a hater or does she have a point?  Let us know on Twitter @DraftDiamonds
