    Removal of woman referee by religious school has some crying foul
    By STEVE ROCK, The Kansas City Star

    Just minutes before tip-off, basketball referee Michelle Campbell was ready to take the court. Shoes laced up, shirt tucked in, whistle in hand.

    Then she noticed the discussion between her officiating partner and the school’s athletic director.

    Finally, Campbell got the news: She wouldn’t be officiating the boys’ high school basketball game. Because she’s a woman.

    Her reaction? “Dumbfounded,” Campbell said....

    Bloody right as well...we can't have women getting all emotional in the middle of a game when a player gets in their face!

    *sits back and waits*
