Lingerie Football League shedding lingerie, and not in the fun way

the Lingerie Football League has announced plans to rename itself the “Legends Football League.” As part of the move, the LFL will be ditching the thing that made the league noteworthy in the first place: lingerie.

Other changes include new team logos absent of "sexy female figures," redesigned shoulder pads to increase protection, and changing their slogan from "True Fantasy Football" to "Women of the Gridiron."

The players will no longer wear modified bras, panties, and garters while playing tackle football on turf (ouch!), instead favoring more traditional performance wear which will “replace all lingerie aspects” of the league’s uniforms.

The league is billing it as “the next step in the maturation of our now global sport.” It goes on to state that the change was made to stop being “viewed as a gimmick” and legitimize the sport by focusing on its athletes’ talents, rather than their bodies.

Are the sell-out crowds the league boasts about showing up to watch the exciting seven-on-seven play? Did the LFL become the first female sports league to get its own videogame because of the novelty of football with no punting or kicking? Are Philadelphia Passion fans showing up to the Wells Fargo Center to watch the athletic prowess of the players?

Let’s face it, probably not.

Does this mean there are 6’-4” 260 pound linemen, oops line women, in the future?

The new business model is based on the notion that men watch pole dancers because they are big dance fans.

Huh?

I thought that there were two points to LFL?

Increasingly, it seems like the 100 Years of Winter endured by Narnia is gripping the US, with the Democrats playing the role of the White Witch, ensuring there is no joy anywhere.

why don’t they bring over some housewives of the Reality TV heifer size to play a few games, who needs padding when you got poochies?

I’m gonna try and watch the puppy bowl this year..

Well, if history is any indicator -- and this comparison is really, really a stretch, I know -- this will become something else and some other outlet will create a new "fantasy" football for the same reason that (here's the best example I can use at the moment) that sci-fi fans watch BBC America instead of the SyFy channel.

Just...no. They named it the LFL for a reason, for Pete’s sake. Next they’ll put diapers on the puppies in the Puppy Bowl.

Smart move! This should really fill the stands to capacity. Fools, just cooked their own goose by taking themselves too seriously.

Got that right. Women in full gear would be simply playing football badly.
