Thank the NFL For Hiring First Female Official


Target: David Coleman, NFL Director of Officiating

Goal: Thank the National Football League for hiring its first full-time female official.

The National Football League recently hired its first full-time female official in a groundbreaking decision sure to break through gender barriers. Prior to the hiring of Sarah Thomas, the NFL had only hired part-time female officials. This momentous decision is a huge step in the right direction for all professional sports leagues. Thank the NFL Director of Officiating, David Coleman, for his assistance in this groundbreaking move.

Sarah Thomas has already officiated several NCAA football games, including a college bowl. She has an impressive history of employment, making her an excellent candidate for the National Football League. This is an incredibly positive and progressive next step for the league.

The NFL has a long history of being a male-dominated league in all categories. The progressive decision to hire a female official will significantly help to destroy gender barriers and create a sense of normalcy surrounding diversity. Our society is continuously moving toward a culture focused on character and qualification rather than race or sex. This is a huge piece of a much larger puzzle that sets our country apart from others and demonstrates a unique level of humanity.

Please sign this petition to thank David Coleman and the National Football League for its commitment to gender equality and continued excellence.


Dear Mr. Coleman,

The National Football League has come such a long way since its start and I’m most pleased to take notice of recent developments. The decision to hire Sarah Thomas as a full-time official is both progressive and important. Thank you for this momentous decision and for playing an important role in the elimination of gender barriers.

Our society is continuously pushing progressive attitudes that judge solely based on character and not physical attributes. This is something we can all be proud of and will inevitably set the NFL apart from other leagues. An excellent example has been set for many to follow.

Sarah Thomas is most qualified for this position and this is a logical next step in her career. I have no doubt she will succeed as an NFL official. The public has expressed great satisfaction with her promotion and I will be happy to continue to support the NFL as a successful league.

Thank you for your role in hiring Sarah Thomas and setting a new standard we can all be proud of.
