Women and football don’t go together

Women playing college or professional football is a joke.

Who is going to take women playing college or professional football seriously?

Female comedian Phyllis Diller said, “The reason women don’t play football is because [11] of them would never wear the same outfit in public.”

So women, they see your own gender is not taking them seriously, so why should we as men and avid sports consumers take it seriously? It does not make any sense period!

Let’s flashback to Feb. 1, 2004, which was Super Bowl 38.

This was no ordinary Super Bowl; it was the first of its kind to feature at halftime a Lingerie Bowl.

The Lingerie Bowl consisted of two teams of women playing football against each other wearing lingerie uniforms.

That was the only time women were on national television playing football against each other, and it was a joke because these women were wearing lingerie instead of football pads.

It was basically promoting the idea that women should aspire to be Victoria’s Secret models and not professional football players.

Looking at this, it’s basically showing how the media does not take you seriously and your own gender doesn’t take you seriously either.

Lady how many more signs do you need to see that no one takes you seriously?

Let’s be honest here, how many people do you think would actually take the time out of their busy Saturday or Sunday to watch women’s football?

Do you think women would choose to watch a game on the weekend over watching a chick flick, getting their nails done, and going shopping? I think not.

So women stop complaining that there are not any opportunities for you to play football.

Because first of all, they know they would not watch it. Secondly, they do not understand what’s going on in the game, and thirdly, they know they would hate the uniforms.
