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 leagues 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?
Lets face it, probably not.

“What is the sound of ratings dropping?”
Does this mean there are 6’-4” 260 pound linemen, oops line women, in the future?
Only if Leon Panetta and the Joint Smoking Chiefs of Staff say so.
I gotta call Golic tomorrow during his show on WNIR!
Yeah sure and I watch beach volleyball for the athleticism. Sure.
Are these games televised? I have never seen one.
Probably be better than the Har-bowel
Say it ain’t so!!!
Out with babes sporting sexy lingerie, in with lesbians sprouting hairy moles.
Apparently someone missed the entire point of LFL
The new business model is based on the notion that men watch pole dancers because they are big dance fans.
they have ratings?
I have never seen it nor do I have any interest in seeing sluts play “football”
Guess I have to give up my season tickets.
I guess “Tucker’s Law” has finally clipped the lingerie bowl ....
‘Apparently someone missed the entire point of LFL’
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.
