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.
Disrobing before an interview seems very empowering
As does playing “Whoomp! (There It Is)” while the cameraman zooms in on a player’s ass
Because all athletes do interviews in their uniforms
Peyton Manning does interviews with his helmet on and Misty May-Treanor shows up in her beach volleyball bikini.
There’s no lace, no bows, THIS IS NOT LINGERIE!
Let’s shift the focus to the girls getting dates…huh?
The sport of football
And there you have it folks. It’s about the sport, not the uniform which is why these two girls are standing in jeans and hoodies.
