Are the players in Lingerie Football chosen for their appearance or playing ability?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (21146 points ) January 15th, 2013

Do you think the women who eventually get accepted on Lingerie Football teams get picked because of their sex appeal or their athetic ability, or ability to bring on the pain on the field? I never have seen a Lingerie Football linewoman tipping the scale at 260+ lbs with rolls of blubber and stretch marks from here to Guadalajara. If they are chosen primarily for their sex appeal should anyone care, they are fun to watch play.

^^Appearablilty means what? Appearance isn’t good enough for you?

@Hypocrisy_Central: Your hyperbole isn’t quite hyperbolic enough.

I’m surprised they bother to keep score.

I can’t tell which one is the tight end.

Of course they are selected for the sex appeal and willingness to flaunt it. If it weren’t so, Rosie the Riveter and all my other good neighbors here in suburban Boston would make the team.

I admit I watch male sport to perv at their bodies, else I am not interested. Maybe its the guys turn?

Obviously, they are selected for their ability to look fierce while standing on the sideline.

Both. These women are athletic and can play the game. They are also attractive. I would watch if they would put uniforms and protective gear on. I can’t take them seriously when they are barely clothed.

@jonsblond I’d prefer real uniforms and physically fit, reasonably muscular bodies as well. It’s embarrassing to watch in those scanty outfits. Kind of like having my wife walk in when the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is playing. No way is she going to buy the explanation that I was hoping to catch the latest trends before buying her a trashy lingerie ensemble. She’d never wear the stuff.

With all due respect, and as the kids would say, “Duh!”

Maybe they’re chosen for personality and poise?

^^^ and a strong desire for world peace?

@ETpro If it weren’t so, Rosie the Riveter and all my other good neighbors here in suburban Boston would make the team. Put a disclaimer on that, I might have been eating. That is a dog gone shame when a person get so fat their 3rd stomach pushes their underwear off their hips and they can’t even feel them. In a Lingerie Football league if she didn’t make you throw up she could be a good middle linebacker

@filmfann I can’t tell which one is the tight end. Something tells me most of them are.

@jonsblond I would watch if they would put uniforms and protective gear on. They do have protective gear on, it is not like they are playing in leather helmets with no face guards or something.

@Hypocrisy_Central I guess it just doesn’t look like they are wearing that much protective gear from the pictures. At least not as much as the men in the NFL do. I have watched a few minutes of lingerie football. That’s why I know how well those girls play. They aren’t tossing the football like a hot potato.

@Shippy “its the guys turn” We’ve got beach volleyball too.
And somehow airbrush art on nudes belongs in a sports magazine.
And there’s an athlete for just about everyone to look at in the Olympics.

Well, if you guys can have Lingerie Football, I want basketball players to return to their 1970’s uniforms. You know what I’m talking about—those tight, little short-shorts with slits on both sides. Why not flaunt all those gorgeous, athletic legs and (ahem) posteriors?

A little something for the ladies…

@PaulSadieMartin I’m a hetro male and do not understand the desire to wear shorts that are baggy street person clothes. I would like the old uniforms back, not because I like looking at the guys in shorts, I just want them to make up their mind, shorts or pants, none of this baggy stupid looking stuff.

SadieMartinPaul's avatar

@Ron_C I, too, have never understood why today’s basketball players wear those long, baggy culottes. It looks as if they’re wearing skirts! And, all that fabric flopping around while someone’s going for full court press? It must get in the way and hinder movement.

@PaulSadieMartin I, too, have never understood why today’s basketball players wear those long, baggy culottes. It looks as if they’re wearing skirts! I have my theory, I believe it came about in part (and it may not even be close) to the macho mentality of most sports in general. That some how shorter trunks were less about movement hindrance, or air drag but more about flossing one’s legs; as in attractiveness. Therefore, who does it must be gay trying to appeal to other player. I have seen it happen all over, not just basketball, it happened in soccer and boxing as well. Track still knows extra garments mean weight (even if ounces, but even they count in a foot race or bike race) or drag on the air, and when you are looking for ever nano second, you’d shave your head if you thought you could pick that up.
