Two weeks ago the Lingerie Football League rebranded as the Legends Football League. A shift away from the sexiness associated with women’s undergarments. But a close examination reveals um, well, they haven’t really changed anything.

Commissioner Mitchell Mortaza has beat the drum of focusing on the sport and empowering women so let’s see how that’s going. Here’s an interview with Fox and Friends yesterday.

As does playing “Whoomp! (There It Is)” while the cameraman zooms in on a player’s ass

There’s no lace, no bows, THIS IS NOT LINGERIE!
