Interesting. I never heard of religious reasons for boys not playing football against girls.

When I was in high school, some girl showed up around the first or second day of practice announcing she wanted to play football. After deciding she might be serious, the coach called over a Division I defensive lineman prospect (who went on to play in the NFL) and a Division II tight end prospect to join in the discussion.

The girl never showed up again.

First the mother will sue the league to force them to let the girl play.

Then when the girl is injured she will sue the league for the injury.

Yes this has happened before.

According to my religion, they shouldn’t have been hitting each other. Oh well.

What religion specifically teaches that you can’t block or tackle women?

I guess if one team is muslim, they’d have to use the girl as a running back, so she could always be following a few steps behind the men.

A football coach objects to his team playing against a team with a female player because certain of his players’ religious beliefs preclude them from hitting/tackling a girl.

I have never heard that argument offered, have you? What an interesting proposition. I wonder if this will go to court.

To: everyone

I have an 11 year old daughter that has been playing football for the last 2 seasons. Both years her team has made it to the playoffs. She plays 1st string defensive safety and outside linebacker. We have made it clear that once my daughter gears up and hits that field she is NOT a “girl” she is a player on that team. She has taken hits and made hard hits for her team. She has been hurt but nothing major. she has played soccer since she was 4 and has seen more injuries on an all girls soccer team than she has as the only girl on her football team. Next year she will play 7th grade ball and she will play as long as she likes. Her abilities to play have NOTHING to do with her anatomy, NOTHING. And for 2 years she has proven it..
Here’s a local news story on her that may help more...
