    that is not the case though

    How are you really sure that there are several female applicants that are more qualified than all the other male applicants? I can see where you are coming from when you made this thread, but you are gonna need some statistics to back up your gut feelings.

    It makes much more sense that there are a lot more qualified men than women trying to get into professional NBA officiating rather than an NBA conspiracy to keep the Woman Referee down.

    This isn't something that can be backed up statistically because I doubt the NBA would release the number of applicants they have. But Even so when it comes down to it, it does not have to be based on numbers. You can do it by percentage of Women hired that are equally qualified as much as their male counterparts then scale that number to match the huge discrepancy of the ratio of M:F applicants.

    I was talking in terms of total percentages the entire time.

    I'm willing to bet that there are at least 99 more qualified male applicants to every female applicant.

    There is no NBA conspiracy to keep women referees out of the game.

    There are just a lot more qualified men referees in comparison to women.

    Men are as emotionally unstable as women. Men Do crazy things because their egos were hurt... So your argument is simply farfetched and unoriginal.

    One last thing, average age of an NBA ref is 46. In maybe 20 or so years I can see a lot more Women Refs. In today's society there are far less bounderies for women and they are even getting encouraged to participate in everything. For the girls growing up in this environment today there will be many more girls not only interested in sports, but seeing it as a realistic career opportunity instead of being "something for the guys". The whole progressive gender equality movement is going to take some time to get fully off the ground however. Rome was not built in a day.

    In the 1970's when most of the NBA referee's were born. A woman being an NBA referee wasn't exactly a realistic goal for women to pursue as opposed to it being a concrete reality for men. This is one of the largest reasons why I was saying there are so many more qualified men applying for NBA officiating jobs instead of Women. When the girls of this generation start growing up there will be a lot more Women who have a different outlook on what or what not are realistic goals leading to more Women who seriously pursue the job as an NBA Official from an early age.

    Great Logic and makes sense.!
