Lingerie Football League

By Holly Wood

I love this new league. Let me say right now that the Lingerie Football League (LFL) is going to be very big. Maybe even as big as the Male, er, National Football League, one day. And, the LFL is more environmentally friendly. It has a much lower carbon footprint.

The concept originated from the Super Bowl halftime alternative television special called the Lingerie Bowl, which is now broadcast annually directly opposite the Super Bowl halftime show. Tten LFL teams compete in a 20-week season with games at major arenas and stadiums.

Play style is full-contact and similar to other indoor football leagues. Uniforms consist of helmets, shoulder pads, elbow pads, knee pads, garters, bras, and panties. There are no field goals and no punts. There is a kickoff to start the game and second half. A team must attempt to get a first down on every fourth down. After a touchdown, a team can attempt a one-point conversion from the two yard line, or a two-point conversion from the five-yard line.

There are seven women on each side of the 50-yard field. Teams consist of 18 players, only 12 of whom are active on game day. This means that there are usually 3 or 4 players who play both offense and defense. The field is 50-yard between end zones, 30 yards wide, and the end zones are 8 yards deep, roughly the same as other indoor leagues. A game consists of two 17-minute halves, separated by a 15-minute halftime. (Wikipedia)
