OK, please dont laugh before you read. then you can laugh.
The Lingerie Football League Is planning on Expanding to Some Canadian cities. the following cities proposed are:
With a team already in Toronto.
I cant help but notice the majority of cities they want to expand to have CFL teams(with the excception of QC). I realize the sport is not that well respected. But there was a time when the CFL wasnt as respected as it is now. There is womens hockey, tennis, Golf, Basketball, vollyball, beach volleyball, Soccer, and probably some rugby somewhere. Right now, there is no place for women who want to play football to do so. Perhaps if they had some teams, more cities would try to start some womens only flag football leagues as a feeder system of sorts. This could be a great way to expand the sport of football and rugby to the female gender in more then just the way of a spectator. Many of us love football because we had a chance to play it. this would give young women that same type of enjoyment.
some rules would have to change- they have too many players that play both ways. the game day roster has to expand from 14 to the team maximum of 20.
They need to insure medical bills are paid for the players.
the convert rule needs to be adjusted. With no kicking for converts, only passing, i feel then they need to move the scrimage line back.
Im not sold on four downs, but its not my game, its an american game.
I relize most people feel this is just football selling sex and vise versa. But the women consider themselves atheltes. NO different then beach vollyball as far as im concerned. to say women can play football and not just be cheerleaders is empowering as far as im concerned. buts its all my opinion.
The advantage of the CFL taking control- ensuring the safety of the players. if its going to happen, it might well happen right.
They could put an important game on the same weekend as the vanier and the grey cup. Making it a tripple bill. possibly bring more fans to the CFL.
Not a whole lot of advantages for the CFL, but sometimes doing the right thing is its own advantage.
