    Lingerie Football League


    http://www.lflus.com/
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lingerie_Football_League

    The Lingerie Football League (LFL) is a women's 7-on-7 tackle American football league, created in 2009, with games played in the fall and winter at NBA, NFL, NHL and MLS arenas and stadiums.
    Was just reading about this coming to Minnesota and I was wondering how it fares in other cities? This is the first I have heard of it.

    Spoiler: show
    Last night, it was announced that a controversial sports league has inked a deal with Target Center and Minneapolis is the lucky 11th burg to win a franchise.

    That's right, the Lingerie Football League is here.

    "We truly understand the sheer amount of people that are sport fanatics in the greater Twin Cities area," says league founder Mitchell Mortaza. "We would be foolish not to place a franchise there."

    The league got its start in 2009. Teams play 7-on-7 full contact football, and players wear, yes, naught but garters and lingerie under their shoulder pads. The women also wear clear-front helmets so fans can see their pretty, pretty faces.

    Shockingly, Mortaza's brainchild has generated plenty of controversy. In addition to fielding the obvious charge that the sport degrades women (leaked player contracts include an "accidental nudity" clause) some players have complained that their medical costs aren't covered. And last November, the mayor of Oklahoma City put the kibosh on a new franchise by banning lingerie football in any city-owned venue. Mortaza says he's not particularly worried about a Twin Cities backlash.

    "We know how progessive it is up here," says Mortaza of any potential opposition. "Will we get a small contingency? Absolutely."

    As we speak, league officials are hammering out a schedule for tryouts, which will be held somewhere in Minneapolis and are open to the public. In mid-April, 35 lucky lasses will be invited to training camp and the roster will be cut to 14 active players and 6 alternates. They're also on the hunt for ex-NFL coaches and prospective owners.

    Cleveland, Las Vegas, and--of course--Green Bay are getting new teams this fall, too.

    The forthcoming team is unnamed and the LFL is asking for suggestions. The name that is submitted the most times will win, and whoever suggested it first gets lifetime season tickets.

    If the name game is any indication, says Mortaza, lingerie football has the blizzard people enthused. Since news broke about the new team last night, 7,400 name submissions have already poured in, more than in any other franchise naming contest. Green Bay only has 2,000 so far.

    Front runners include the Minnesota Maidens, the Minnesota Vixens, and the Minnesota Valkyries.

    "I just actually Googled it," says Mortaza. "'A host female figure who decided who will die in battle.' It was the first I'd heard of it."

    We're curious how the Minnesota Vixens, the country's longest running women's football team, feels about all this . . .

    An old girl of mine plays for the Bliss, and an old teammate was one of her coaches. They wear some pretty skimpy uniforms but I can't believe the LFL is gonna stick around.

    I did enjoy their Playboy spread a couple of months ago. I am currently enjoying the team names, they're over the top ridiculous. Too bad "Miami Heat" was already taken, it would fit right in.

    If Portland had a team, I would go check it out once, provided the cost of tickets and several beers was reasonable. Driving to Seattle would be far too much effort, though. And I can't imagine ever taking it serious enough as a sport to care who won; I think I'd just find myself rooting for wardrobe malfunctions.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    For some reason, this makes me miss Roller Jam.



    hope they do well so they can actually give those chicks medical coverage. Otherwise it won't last long at all when they run out of usable players lol

    I dunno about live, but as far as the TV coverage, this is the biggest problem. MTV covers it like a real sport we actually give a shit about, instead of showing off the 20 women wrestling in their underwear extensively.

    Last year? maybe two years ago they were going to hold tryouts at my local sports complex. I was soooo pumped to call out of work and perv it up watching these women pretend to play football but the owner of the complex caught wind of what management arranged and canceled it.

    Then they moved the try outs elsewhere and I didn't feel like driving 45 minutes to get there.

    Glad I didn't go, the women are like WNBA rejects trying to run routes, all the while lacking any sexiness.

    Well, look at my location bro. This is the Greater Philadelphia area I'm talking about, we're top 3 in ugly cities.

    Those chicks are prolly on the Desire and Sin squads.
