Sexy end zone: Lingerie Football League is a thing that exists and is getting its own video game

Never been interested in American Football? Me neither. UNTIL NOW. Did you know that - according to BusinessWeek - the fastest growing sports league in the United States is the Lingerie Football League? Me neither. UNTIL NOW. And did you know that WWE developer Yuke's has got the rights to make an official LFL game for consoles? Me neither. UNTIL NOW. I'll stop that now. UNTIL NOW.

Above: Some LFL players. They are not men

Yes. This is a thing that is happening - the exciting real-life sport of women in bras and panties and padding and headgear collectively running about and smashing into each other and trying to get a ball somewhere is being made into a game. Which makes perfect sense given that the LFL has been playing to capacity crowds and record television ratings all over the world. Popular sport = video game = KERCHING!

Above: This team is called Los Angeles Temptation

There aren't really any more details about the game other than it's happening and Yuke's are making it, but I'm guessing the principles are the same as regular American Football so it'll probably be along the lines of Madden. Which makes me think I'll probably just stick with watching clips of LFL on YouTube if I really want to.That way I won't have to bother learning the rules or anything. And the ladies aren't just made of graphics.

UNTIL NOW.

    Wow guys, take your balls back from your girlfriends' purses... Anyone of us men who find LFL to be unappealing are either, uninterested in women or fucking liars... Pick a side. I ain't got a problem with either, but don't bullshit. I know it sounds chivalrous to act like you are better than this, buuuuut you aren't and YOU know it... Get off your high horses. These women are fucking beautiful, showing off what they are lucky enough to have, AND BY GOD I WON'T LET THAT GO TO WASTE! I remember a time when people could admire eachother's sexuality just for the sake of admiring it, all this politically correct bologna has ruined that. All of a sudden sexuality is bad, now we should feel ashamed if we are turned on by anything. FUCK THAT, and fuck anyone who seriously wants to live in that world. Sexuality is great, women are beautiful, women in lingerie smashing into eachother are even more beautiful. Until these women are forced to compete by their pimps and daddys, I am going to give them the respect they so obviously want, and I will do this by supporting LFL and any other endeavors they aim for. If being able to play naked football with lingerie clad women isn't freedom, I don't want to know what is.

    OMG! Somebody who appreciates the female form AND respects women? Is that even possible?!?
  • Moondoggie1157 - June 21, 2012 7:37 a.m.

    Strange isn't it, Usmovers? I mean, god forbid someone could find respect in another genders' sexuality... I'm used to the whole "you're a dog" speech, a lot of my artwork consists of female models and their form... I can only imagine how artists felt back in the day when showing a knee was scandalous... I really pity people who can't find beauty in simple things like the human body and sexuality in general, it's a shame... Then again, I think these are the same people who believe that bike paths are saving the Earth. Kids, wake up...
  • ParagonT - June 21, 2012 8:08 a.m.

    Respecting? Please explain how your respecting. I'm a Graphic Designer, I've worked with the male and female form for many years, and I can tell you that when your stating "admiration" your inferring "objectification". You think that they want to be wearing so little? I doubt it, it's probably because they (who I bet are mostly male) know it will make it be increasingly viewed. Simple question I would like you to answer with a yes or no, do you support them wearing so little due to the fact that it "sells"?
  • Moondoggie1157 - June 21, 2012 8:46 a.m.

    No, I don't support the lack of clothing because it sells, I'm not that pig headed haha. I support it because these women have the right/ability to choose for themselves, and (on a selfish level) because I find them to be very, very attractive. Maybe I'm a bit dead inside, but I don't have any problem with men or women playing any game in the (almost) nude. I think that there are plenty of more important issues to get heated over, this is simple athletic entertainment, no different from pro-wrestling, cheerleading. I don't have any interest in purchasing anything regarding the LFL, so right there the idea of marketing sexuality has no sway on me. It's the same as me finding pro-wrestling to be silly, I have no interest in their product or company. But the fact remains that these women look outstanding in lingerie and even more-so on the grid iron, they aren't slaves, they obviously have the self-confidence to do what they do, and yes, I admire that and respect it. I just think it's bullshit that a bunch of men try to act like they aren't intrigued by lingerie clad women in football pads.
  • Moondoggie1157 - June 21, 2012 9:12 a.m.

    Sorry, I missed something. When I mean "admiration" I mean... well, admiration. I find the human body to be something beautiful, something that should be admired. Nothing to do with objectification, you're a graphic designer, you obviously know the difference, I'd hope. Also, yes, those who created this league are likely all male, or mostly. But I don't think these women were forced into doing this, they chose. Do you think they are not able to make their own decisions as consenting, mature adults?
  • ParagonT - June 21, 2012 9:41 a.m.

    So your logic is that because they "chose" to do this more likely not out of wanting justifies your/others choice to support it by watching? That's ignorant.
  • Moondoggie1157 - June 21, 2012 9:50 a.m.

    Well if we are taking about what is morally correct, then yes. If the choice is theirs to make, than the argument towards morals falls upon them. Now, if I were someone who strongly supported it, watched it, bought the merch. then maybe I could be taken into considering... But, honestly I don't have any interest in the league, I just find them gorgeous. Now, ignorance would mean that I have put no thought into this at all, or that I don't know what I am talking about, but like you, I think I have defended my side fairly well. This is nothing personal, and I usually enjoy your comments, I think we just bumped skulls this time :P
  • usmovers_02 - June 21, 2012 2:12 p.m.

    Yeah, I'm feeling the same way. I don't think anybody here is really attacking the other side. We're all just stating our view points and they happen to differ. As far as internet debates go, this has been one of the better ones.

    "Wow guys, take your balls back from your girlfriends' purses... Anyone of us men who find LFL to be unappealing are either, uninterested in women or fucking liars... Pick a side." Or maybe I happen to like women, but I like them to be treated as people, not as objects to lust after, much less publicly. You don't have to be a disrespectful tool in order to like women, you know? Oh who am I kidding, you obviously don't know. ". I know it sounds chivalrous to act like you are better than this, buuuuut you aren't and YOU know it... Get off your high horses." Yes! Let's lower ourselves down to your primal state! How dare we have standards! "I remember a time when people could admire each other's sexuality just for the sake of admiring it, all this politically correct bologna has ruined that." Yes, it was called the 50's, and it was also okay to beat up women if they so much spoke up, and it was also alright to treat them as second class citizens. Where have the good times gone indeed! "All of a sudden sexuality is bad, now we should feel ashamed if we are turned on by anything." Incorrect, sexuality has never been bad, and no rational people would recriminate you for being sexual in your own private environment. The problem here is that sexuality is shamelessly used as a marketing tool to get more views in something that practical-wise does not need it. "If being able to play naked football with lingerie clad women isn't freedom, I don't want to know what is. " Yes, because those women obviously would want to play like that just because they feel like it. It has nothing to do with the fact that it was probably the only way they could get media attention because thanks to witless horny men like you, they don't otherwise pay attention to women playing sports. In short, feel free to keep being a shameless dick, but stop trying to lower everyone else who has standards to your level.

    Whatever helps you sleep at night, Falcon. I forgot that these women are forced into this lingerie football league, and are threatened into becoming mere objects of lust... I guess I missed that memo. I get that the sensitive, "new age" man image makes you feel like a better person than I am, but honestly dude, cut the shit. If you don't find this LFL appealing, at least on a physical level, you're lying... It's as easy as that. You can defend yourself all you want, and try to insult my character, but honestly, anyone with common sense knows that you're full of shit. No one, and I mean NO ONE with a sex drive could find this to be disgusting... except for women's rights activists, and the men who lie about their desires to gain credit with the women naive enough to believe them.
  • ParagonT - June 21, 2012 7:56 a.m.

    "No one, and I mean NO ONE with a sex drive could find this to be disgusting... except for women's rights activists, and the men who lie about their desires to gain credit with the women naive enough to believe them." Have you ever heard about Sigmund Freud's construction of the human psyche in the glacier model? Read up on that further. There is a vast difference in thinking LFL is attractive, compared to thinking its morally is correct. Those that have dignity know when to control their basic drives and realize that it's demeaning will be the ones who will change the world. Those that believes it's okay to promotes demeaning behaviors because "were guys" are the ones that need to evolve. Everyone has desires, no shit, but it's the ones that are able to control their desires in favor of a higher cause are the ones that will get progress the species. Try to insult your character? You damn well do it fine by yourself, please evolve, the rest of us would be better for it.
  • Moondoggie1157 - June 21, 2012 8:55 a.m.

    Paragon, Freud was a coke addict with mommy issues, and his theories have almost all but been dismissed... Come on, buddy. I'll try to keep my desires in check next time I buy an LFL ticket (which i am so interested in...), or jerk off to their photos, because obviously, that's what I do. I'm not for promoting anything, Paragon. It's just that instead of being afraid that these women are using their sexuality to promote themselves by their own accord (<-- very important) I embrace it, and give them the thumbs up to play any sport they want in the nude. There are plenty of other sports they could play, given their athletic prowess, they chose the LFL. I'll support it until they go against it. Before you criticize me and my opinion, please go ask how many of these athletes find their league to be demeaning, until then... you have nothing but your own personal fears and morals, and that's totally cool. I'm already waiting at the evolutionary fork in the road, please catch up.
  • ParagonT - June 21, 2012 9:32 a.m.

    What does it matter what Freud was? Bill Gates was a thief, Steve Jobbs was an ass, and Charlie Sheen has drug problems. Flaws do not make what they do any less great or practical. Freuds theories were not dismissed but built upon in Psychoanalytical/Dynamic studies. As for the ladies choosing, they have chosen. But if someone were to pay them and give them the choice of playing football without being half naked, which do you think they would choose? Your logic is only accounting for the fact that they have only one opportunity in that branch of "entertainment". It's good to see that your copying my jokes, sad to see you couldn't make your own.
  • Moondoggie1157 - June 21, 2012 9:54 a.m.

    No jokes, my friend. I hope when you say built upon, you mean changed and disregarded for being overly sexist. Just sayin'. I guess we came from different schools though. They can play football all they want, I'm pretty sure there are amateur football leagues for women (don't quote me on it though). Mind you, they won't be paid the same salary, but really? What athlete isn't over payed anyways? That being said, I highly doubt that they are in the LFL because they have a drive to play football :P Considering the rules are a little different.
  • BladedFalcon - June 21, 2012 8:22 a.m.

    "I forgot that these women are forced into this lingerie football league, and are threatened into becoming mere objects of lust... I guess I missed that memo." No one has said these women are forced into lingerie. However, I am pretty sure they aren't wearing it because they feel like it, but more because it's the most surefire way that they will get noticed, and thus, will get paid better. "If you don't find this LFL appealing, at least on a physical level, you're lying... It's as easy as that." That it appeals to my sex drive as a male doesn't mean I approve of it or find it right. I have a brain that let's me think above the base rationale of animals. And I have standards that let me choose not to give in and ogle or fantasize about every scantily clad women out there. As such, I find such shameless sexual pandering such as this to be rather insulting, really. Because the whole rationale behind it is that I'll suddenly pay attention to something just because it has bare naked ladies in it. "No one, and I mean NO ONE with a sex drive could find this to be disgusting..." I never said it was disgusting, I said it was vulgar and objectifying, there's a difference. "You can defend yourself all you want, and try to insult my character, but honestly, anyone with common sense knows that you're full of shit" It amuses me to see how you fail to see the irony of you accusing me of insulting your character, when you did that same thing in your original post, and continue to do so now. If you start a post attacking and insulting people, it's stupid to expect replies being all "nice" to you. See, THAT is common sense, so I am not sure you're that familiar with the term to begin with.

    "... I am pretty sure they aren't wearing it because they feel like it, but more because it's the most surefire way that they will get noticed, and thus, will get paid better...." I'm sure they had no idea that a Lingerie Football League would have anything to do with... Lingerie, who knew right? If the women athletes didn't want to play in the nude, they could evidently play another sport, right? Right. Jesus Christ, it's not like there is a lack of sports out there for women to play. I have morals, I have the ability to choose what I ogle at. Your argument here is on the same level as someone saying they go to a bikini car wash for the great car wash... Come on, man. Do you really think these women are choosing to play in lingerie because they DON'T want to be looked at? Is it possible that a person could have such high confidence that they have no problem putting themselves in the open like that? Fuck, I'm vain as hell and I love when women look at me, if I could play a sport nearly naked and be admired, I totally would. "I never said it was disgusting, I said it was vulgar and objectifying, there's a difference." Vulgar? Oh, that's a lot better than disgusting... Really, Falcon? Lastly, when it comes to my character, I know who I am quite well, and so do many others. And believe me, I am no where near the pig that I might seem to be, if that's how I came across, well shitty for the internet people, I guess. And I don't expect people to be nice, hence why I am not always nice. I see this as something very simple: A bunch of women who choose to play football in their underwear, and I see that as something that is very appealing. If that makes me a pig, than so be it, I see it as me being attracted to the female figure. Falcon, does this mean we aren't friends anymore?
