A "could be" interesting question for you ladies

DH & I were talking earlier about football and he commented how there are more and more women who are sport reporters - on the field, etc. Of course, I called him a sexist pig and made the comment that women have to reap the benefits of this ever so popular sport somehow since they don't have a league for women in the pros.

Anyhow, the main point to my question is, how many of you would be (or would have been if you're older like me) willing to participate in an all women's football league if the chance were ever given? I'm not talking a powder puff league, but a bonafide all women's PRO football league? DH doesn't think there would ever be enough interest to warrant starting a league.

  • I wouldn't do it simply because I don't have the build for it, but I think there are women out there that would and it would be interested and they'd do a great job.

  • When i was younger i played football for my primary school and then after that i stopped but only because i was more intrested in boys and make-up. But i reckon it would be quite good but i dn't have the build like i used to.

  • I would. I played football with a bunch of guys and girls from my neighborhood, and it got pretty rough, and we didn't have pads. I would have LOVED to!

  • I played backyard football with the neighborhood boys when I was in high school, so I think I would do it . . . . but only because I can un really fast, because I'm tiny . . . 4'11"
