All four of the guys on this site play fantasy football (some much, much better than others). In what's become the 21st century version of a bench press competition, fantasy football has become the best way to prove your dominance over your friends, co-workers and random strangers on the internet. Because of the soul crushing pain associated with fantasy losses, we seek out every possibly drop of knowledge, and insider info we can possibly find.
So let's think about this for a minute. Who would have more insider information that they could actually tell you without violating team trust? Who can monitor trends, formations, defenses and patterns? Who knows more about the game? Coaches? Sure,... but good luck getting blood from those stones. Owners? Those who aren't shooting audition tapes with their girlfriends might know, but who knows any owners anyways? Players? They're not going to tell you anything, other than to make sure you draft them. So who does that leave?
An NFL referee would do the trick.
And in this case, the guy in the best position to gain this information would be Shannon Eastin's husband or Shannon Eastin's boyfriend. Shannon Eastin is the first female referee in NFL history breaking the league gender barrier. She's been afforded this opportunity as a replacement official due to an ongoing labor dispute resulting in the NFL locking out officials since June. Shannon Eastin is an active referee in the Mid Eastern Athletic Conference, and will be assigned to Thursday night's preseason game between the Green Bay Packers and San Diego Chargers. Seriously though, how cool would it be to be Shannon Eastin's boyfriend or husband? Say nothing about the fantasy advice, I mean any bar room debate over NFL rules would be settled immediately and with relative impunity. That's worth it right there!
Now for the million dollar question you've all been waiting for: Who is Shanon Eastin married to? Who is Shannon Eastin dating? Honestly,... we have no clue, and we can't even find out if she is married. As a new face to the NFL landscape, it's not entirely shocking that there's not more information out there about her, but we were taken aback by just how little personal information exists. Should Eastin work in a regular season game, it's likely more information will come out, and we'll be there with it when it happens...
