Lingerie Football League makes Tim Tebow an offer to become quarterbacks coach

tim-tebow-jetsThe New York Jets released Tim Tebow on Monday morning, and many are wondering if his days of playing in the NFL are over.

The media buzz Tebow creates is good for some teams, but most of the league would consider him nothing more than a distraction at this point. However, Tebow will not be collecting unemployment unless he chooses to.

If things fall through with the NFL, Tebow still has a home with the Legends Football League, which was formerly known as the Lingerie Football League.


Imagine the things Tebow could do if he combined this offer with the lifetime membership to the Museum of Sex he was given last year. The possibilities are endless. Don’t laugh; those LFL quarterbacks deliver some devastating blows.

Lingerie Football League’s fired refs were officiating NFL games as replacements

Just how bad are the NFL’s replacement referees? According to the Lingerie Football League, so bad that they were fired by the LFL for incompetence before being hired by the NFL as replacement refs.

The LFL emailed the following statement to many media outlets including LBS to let the truth be known about how unqualified the replacement refs were:

“Because of the LFL’s perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer,” commissioner Mitchell Mortaza said in a statement. “Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations.

Lingerie League quarterback delivers devastating hit (Video)

The Lingerie Football League isn’t just about girls in skimpy outfits and reality shows — they actually play some real football.

Witness the hit above: Regina Rage quarterback Nikki Johnson lowers her shoulder on Toronto’s Devine Burton to score a touchdown in Regina’s week 3 upset win. I mean Johnson just laid a forearm shiv on Burton! You think you those kinds of hits on Saturdays and Sundays? Well you do in the LFL. You think a little skinny dude like DeSean Jackson could handle something like that? Not a chance. Some of these ladies are tough.

Lingerie Football League players fight during All-Star Game (NSFW Video)

Slowly but surely, the Lingerie Football League has emerged as a microcosm for two things people love in America: sex and violence. The sex — well, that’s pretty self-explanatory. There are certain players who would like to see the skimpy outfits go away sometime in the future, but that’s not happening as long as the LFL is in existence. As for the fighting, we’re starting to see a lot more of that as of late while the LFL is on its All-Star Game world tour.

In the video below that Off the Bench passed along, you see Tessa Barrara of the Los Angeles Temptation throw a late hit on Kyle DeHaven of the Baltimore Charm during an All-Star game in Australia. DeHaven did not appreciate the extracurricular activity, so she responded by punching Barrara in the gut. Then, the swears starting flying and the ratings flash upward a tiny bit. The video contains very strong language.

Australian sports minister Kate Lundy rips the Lingerie Football League

Like it or not, the Lingerie Football League is rapidly gaining popularity across the globe. Having started out as a 10-team league from the United States, the LFL has since expanded into Canada and a trial match is taking place in Australia this June. By 2013, the LFL should have permanent teams in Australia. That has infuriated Australian sports minister Kate Lundy, who like many others believes the league is degrading to women.

In a recent article she wrote for the Australian blog Mamamia.com, Lundy blasted the Lingerie League and encouraged the people of Australia to not support it.

“The LFL is about giving viewers an opportunity to perv on women in gear that looks like it’s come from an adult shop,” Lundy wrote. “It’s called the Lingerie Football League because it’s almost exclusively about the underwear.

“Lingerie Football isn’t just a distraction; it’s an assault on sport. Anyone who’s participated in sport, or followed a team, can attest to the fact sport is an incredibly powerful platform for social inclusion. The problem with Lingerie Football is that in sexualising the game of gridiron they’re undermining any future for broader inclusion in the sport, inevitably making it harder for women to make inroads or receive equitable treatment.”

Coaches brawl at Lingerie Football All-Star game (Video w/ very NSFW language)

Over the years we’ve watched a number of All-Star games from various professional sports leagues, and rarely do tempers ever boil over. Guys who are typically stone-faced and irritable during the regular season (see Belichick, Bill) even seem to enjoy themselves when they get together for events like the Pro Bowl. Apparently the coaches in the Lingerie Football League have more passion than those in the NFL, NBA, NHL, or any other league for that matter.

LFL coaches Tony Nguyen and Chandler Brown went at it in the middle of the LFL All-Star game last week and had to be separated. It all started when one of Chandler’s players kicked the ball out of bounds on a kickoff, which apparently infuriated Nguyen and is some sort of bush league move in an LFL All-Star game. Who knew? The lovely ladies in pink had to separate the coaches before play continued. Check out this video of the incident, which contains extremely strong language and is NSFW:

Omaha is getting a Lingerie League team when play resumes next year

We told you not to be fearful of the Lingerie Football League taking a one-year leave of absence. The league isn’t going anywhere, and all indications are that the intention is to grow the beast and bring it back stronger than ever. The city of Omaha can attest to that, as they are planning to host an LFL team when play resumes in 2013.

According to the Omaha World-Herald, the Omaha-area franchise — which has not been given a name — will play two home games in Ralston’s 3,500 seat arena. Members of the Nebraska Stampede, another women’s football team that plays fully clothed and fully padded, are reportedly upset that they were passed over and have to play their home games at a high school field.

“From my perspective, it’s really frustrating that this is the reality in our society,” Tina Johnson, the Stampede’s general manager and starting fullback said. “Sex sells, and it always will. If they want to go out there and play in their lingerie, then by all means, that’s their power. I just wish we could get that same kind of respect with our clothes on.”

Johnson is not alone in her thinking. In fact, some LFL players have even expressed a desire for the league to use less skimpy uniforms and for the football to be the selling point, not the scantily clad women. At this point in time, it’s obvious the league has no intention of making that happen.

The bottom line is Lingerie Football is coming to Nebraska, and I’m sure there are plenty of people who are ready to celebrate it.
