This begs the question "is lingerie football a serious sport or just a bunch of women running around in their underwear?" With that question in mind, I set out to do some research. Luckily for me, Foxtel's sports channels carry the LFL. Thanks to Foxtel I have been able to watch a few games and get a "feel" for the game and whether it is serious sport.
I have to say, having watched a few games, these girls go at it hammer and tong. There are some really big hits. I am sure there are plenty of people who watch it just for the sex appeal. Yet, the players themselves, like Natalie Jahnke, consider it to be legitimate sport. Nevertheless, Jahnke does admit that sex sells.
Yet, whether the LFL is legitimate sport or just a little bit of voyeuristic opportunism, is irrelevant if it brings in the crowds and is profitable, isn't it?
But one has to give credit where credit is due. These young women train hard and get out there week-in and week-out during the season to play football. My guess is that the most exercise some people will get will be watching these young women run around in their panties and bras.
Now, for the pictures...
