    And I thought Lollipop Chainsaw was bad...

    I have known of this for a while and I approve.

    I go for the pie and pint too, but this sport does seem sad. Just another tease I know sexy things sell, but its just boy shorts and a top. Plus I feel that the whole lingerie thing will be there selling point other than a really good football game.

    If I was cynical Brit I would say how boring does a sport have to be that it needs girls in underwear to make it worth watching. I can imagine the game will be very poor.

    LFL is a true sport. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vy7VvHaHMc0 These women know football. It isn't seen as the fastest growing sport solely based on what these women wear. People gotta wake up, there is a sport within LFL. Look beyond the pretty face and educate yourselves. Now if the videogame will deliver the sport in a real or shallow manner, that's up to Yuke's. If they know better they will design it as a serious sport with solid gameplay. LFL takes itself seriously, the players take the sport seriously, most of the fans wouldn't watch it if it was all looks and no high level football. Yukes should make their LFL game with a mature and hardcore attitude. The sexy side of it is just the icing on the cake.

    If LFL was a true sport, they wouldn't need the women to dress in skimpy outfits. The only reason they do that is to get people to watch, if it was a "hardcore" sport, then why aren't the women in actual football uniforms? Just saying.
  • usmovers_02 - June 20, 2012 1:49 p.m.

    Why can't it be a true sport and have beautiful half naked women? I'm an LFL fan and the main reason I watch is to see my team win. Beautiful half naked women are just a bonus.
  • EwoksTasteLikeChicken - June 20, 2012 2:43 p.m.

    Sorry. I don't know too much about the sport. Just from the way I see it, if they wanted people to take it seriously, they wouldn't have the women dress half naked. I would have much more respect for these players if they had actual uniforms. Since they're wearing lingerie, all it is is to draw in the male audience. Otherwise why wouldn't they wear real uniforms? And if they like showing off their bodies like that, so middle aged men can stare at them? That pretty much just makes them whores.
  • usmovers_02 - June 20, 2012 2:55 p.m.

    Aesthetics should not have an effect on whether you respect someone or not. And thinking of women as whores just because they have skin and aren't afraid to show it strikes me as sexist. Men go around topless all the time. Are men whores because of that? Ahh! Right, but breasts are sexual. And women totally aren't attracted to mens nipples. Beautiful women are beautiful women. Ugly women are ugly women. Beautiful men are beautiful men. Ugly men are ugly me. That's the way it is. It has nothing to do with being a good person or a bad person.

    I think what he's trying to get at is that the entire concept of the LFL is demeaning not just towards women, but towards men as well
  • usmovers_02 - June 21, 2012 5:38 a.m.

    Again, I disagree. I'm not ashamed that I'm attracted to women and I've already stated how I feel about sexy women who show it off.
  • ParagonT - June 21, 2012 8:23 a.m.

    It's fine to be attracted to women, but to support something that demeans men or women is stupidity.
  • MasterBhater - June 20, 2012 9:26 a.m.

    It IS seen as the fastest growing sport because of what the women wear, don't kid yourself. A game based on this sport would be like Madden with less clothing (Sounds a lot like BMX XXX doesn't it?). Yes, there might be a "hardcore" attitude, but I'm pretty goddamn sure attendance rates would drop if the sport was called "Women's Football". The entire idea this so-called "sport" bases itself upon is that "Well, nobody wants to watch women play sports, so lets just take our clothes off. Then middle-aged, desperate men will be flocking to the stadium in hopes of witnessing a wardrobe malfunction." The amount of sexism shown in this sport is staggering. What happens when a woman wants to join a team but she isn't attractive enough in a thong? Judging by the above pictures it seems like the criteria for the athletes puts "Must be sexy" first and "must be good at football" second.

    I can't help but to agree. These women aren't wearing even HALF the protective equipment normal football players do. They might be playing real football but with added, unnecessary risk for the sake of showing off some skin. It's hard to respect a woman willing to give up safety and objectify herself in order to play a "real sport" or in a "real league." For instance, there's the WFA (Women's Football Alliance) that equips women in full protective gear rather than bikinis/"lingerie." Maybe some aren't super-model material but they can play the sport seriously without objectifying themselves or risking unnecessary injuries.
  • suade907 - June 20, 2012 10:22 a.m.

    It is definitely a real sport, these women are rock solid and hit like Mack trucks. The outfit is just a perk for all of us men. I'm sure they were just to get people like me to watch in the beginning but these girls are hardcore. There are fights like crazy in this sport. I love it.
  • ParagonT - June 20, 2012 11:41 a.m.

    I'll call it a sport, but it looks pathetic. In the sense that they need to sacrifice protective wear in order to appease the crowd. Sad stuff.
  • BladedFalcon - June 20, 2012 12:08 p.m.

    This, pretty much this. And I am sorry, but even if these women DO have skills and know their game, it' honestly rather hard to take the sport seriously when the reason they're dressed like that is just to grab attention. It's objectifying for those women, and there is no justification around that.
  • usmovers_02 - June 20, 2012 1:57 p.m.

    If you got it, flaunt it. These women do this by choice. They're not being forced to. There are OTHER female football leagues they could join if the wardrobe was an issue. They've got it... they don't mind showing it off. Heck, they probably ENJOY showing it off. And guess what? Being a reasonable guy, it doesn't have any negative or positive effect on the way I look at women. I still respect women just as much as I did before.
  • BladedFalcon - June 20, 2012 2:55 p.m.

    "If you got it, flaunt it" Right, regardless of how i actually feel about that saying in general, that doesn't fit here. It fits in a fashion contest or program, or something else in which clearly, the intent is to show off the physical appeal of the participants. This doesn't apply here, why? because it's a sport, in practical terms, the goal of a sport has never been of who looks better or has the better body: It is to win. And in the specifically case of American Football, one of such factors is wearing adequate protective gear to help avoid lessons that can cause a player to stop playing to the detriment of the team. Thus, playing in scantily clad clothes is detrimental to the goal of the game. And let's be real here, the main reason why they play like that it's not because "they feel like it" it's because it's clearly mean to appeal and grab the attention of males. So yeah, they might not be "forced" to do it. But there's a very obvious, objectifying reason was to why they play like that. And it's detrimental to the women's own skills because it's hard to take seriously someone who would rather show some skin in order to get ratings, instead of properly protecting herself.

    The rules of the sport are not the same as in the NFL. I can't say I'm an expert in LFL hit rules, but I'm sure there are some in place to add extra protection to the women, such as the rule that only one linebacker can blitz. Also, I don't see an issue with combining sex appeal with a sport. It's still a sport and the rules could be applied to ANYBODY playing the game. If a group of guys wanted to play football with LFL rules, they could. Also, what about backyard football? I play full contact football with my friends and roomates all the time. We don't use ANY protective gear. We know what the risk is. And we're certainly not the only ones who play backyard with no protective gear. I guess in the end the way you view the league and the women is a personal thing. I don't think less of the women at all. I wouldn't think more or less of them if they wore full protective gear and a uniform. Heck, I was a big fan of my local female football team while they were still around and they wore a full uniform. That and the linemen were quite a bit heftier than anything in the LFL. Still loved watching them play. But MAN were they bad. Not just my team but all the teams they played. The LFL girls are top notch athletes.
