    Man, nowhere in sports is prevailing sexism more apparent than watching football on Sundays. Evidently, women are qualified to stand on the sideline and ask canned questions and make mundane observations, but they aren't allowed to advance up to the booth to call the game in those higher-paying jobs. Silly.

    Evidently, this is a dumb thread.

    I thought this was about Serena Williams.

    Serena could step into the booth ... if she were white.

    Why aren't women in the broadcast booth?
    Because there's no kitchen there.
    Duh.

    Beth Mowins and Pam Ward would like to have a word with you.

    He wrote "watching football on Sundays." Not Saturdays. Unless Beth and Pam are calling Sunday NFL games somewhere.

    This thread is stupid for many reasons, but while everyone likes to bitch about how there's no women in the NFL Broadcast booths, they never bother to answer this question - how many new men have been hire for the same position? There aren't a lot of PxP jobs around, so it's not like Fox and CBS are hiring unqualified men over a woman who might be qualified.
    Stupid argument.

    What do you think the male/female breakdown for radio voiceovers is? For television commercials and newscast VOs? For public address systems?

    Didn't baseball have a (short) run of female public address announcers? Boston, San Francisco? Maybe one or two others?
