Sign the Petition. Female football players wearing lingerie while playing football; or more specifically a modified version of US NFL football. However, Mortaza has also admitted in interviews that the selection of female players is based on their physical appearance.

These responses are not unwarranted. Both the lingerie and the padding consisting of modified football shoulder pads, optional elbow pads, knee pads and hockey helmets with half-visors are minimal enough to ensure none of them obscure the usually ample cleavage of the athlete. The LFL is essentially just a spectacle for the male gaze. What is the NFL if not an incarnation of gladiatorial combat with a few rules thrown in? But when was the last time an NFL football team chose a player in the draft based, at least in part, on his beauty? All Tom Brady jokes aside, that has never and will never happen. However, it must happen in the LFL. To return to my previous analogy, if we watch professional wrestlers as characters first and athletes second, then we watch LFL players as tits-and-ass first and athletes second. Is that objectifying?

The Legends Football League formerly the Lingerie Football league officially formed in , after being featured as a halftime exhibition game for the Super Bowl. Since then the league has been called both sexist, and empowering to women, dividing the public into two camps. In recent years the league has changed its image in a massive rebranding, trying to capitalize on the physical competition more than the sex appeal of players. Most of the players are transplants from other sports like tennis, volleyball, softball, soccer, and crossfit style body building. The addition of players who played sports prior has had two significant advantages. First, the caliber of athletic ability has been significantly raised since the league's inception. The second advantage is that fans get to watch extremely fit girls show off their abs, defined legs and arms, and other assets in small uniforms..
We are talking football! No, we are not talking about the NFL, the league that was born in and has grown to be the most popular sport in America. We are going to ignore the version played nights a week that symbolizes testosterone, beer, gambling, and America's insatiable desire for talk, talk, and more talk. They've also gone as far as testing the market in Asia and plan to expand there as well. All of these separate Leagues will play until they have a champ and then play each other to eventually have a World Champion. You've got to wonder how a group of woman playing football in lingerie, MY BAD: athletic gear, can actually put down roots every where.
