Shannon Eastin to Officiate Second NFL Game This Week
By: The Football Girl | Posted: August 21, 2012
On August 9th, when Green Bay and San Diego kicked off, history was made as Shannon Eastin became the first female to ever officiate in an NFL game. Eastin was the line judge for that game and threw five flags.
Almost concurrent with the game was news that Eastin had previously participated in the World Series of Poker, something the union thought discredited her. However, the league said she passed all of their background checks.
That was a couple weeks ago and we hadn’t heard much about Eastin since.
I contacted the league office for an update and received the following response from league spokesman Michael Signora, “In Week 2, she was always scheduled to be an alternate and was not on the field. In Week 3, she will be back on the field, again as the line judge. We do not release the assignments prior to game day, so that is all the information I can provide at this point.”
So get ready to see Eastin become the first female ever to officiate in two NFL preseason games. Is the regular season next?
