Your bias and preconceived agenda has both blinded you to what is really being said and caused you to conflate issues that are unrelated. Unequal treatment in the NCAA tournament absolutely happened and is a red herring in this conversation. Saying that a female umpire did a poor job is not the same thing as saying that women are poor umpires. I've run into literally zero people across any softball organization in 10 years who have stated or insinuated that they want no or fewer female umpires. In fact, I've seen several organizations actively seeking more women to umpire.Thanks @Westwind for making my point for me. I stated some people just don't want to see female umps in the game and you think that is the dumbest post yet?? Are you really that blind????? Women are fighting to have a bigger role in every aspect of sports yet there are plenty that would prefer that doesn't happen or doesn't think it is important enough. Did you see the NCAA Women's Basketball tournament? Sorry you think it is dumb but it is a fact sir!
