Legends Football League invites Ray Rice to ‘get his ass handed to him’

carmen-bourseauWith Ray Rice suspended indefinitely by the NFL, it’s highly unlikely we will see him suiting up for another team in the league anytime soon. The chances of Rice in the Legends Football League (formerly Lingerie Football League) is even smaller, but that didn’t stop the ladies from sending a message to the former Ravens running back.

Los Angeles Temptation running back Carmen Bourseau threw down the gauntlet and challenged Rice to play one down so he can get his ass handed to him by one of their female athletes. She then closed by calling Rice a “f***ing coward.”

From a league full of women, it’s hardly surprising to see them take such a stance on Rice’s situation, even if publicity is also a factor. I’m pretty sure there are quite a few women around the country who feel the same as Carmen and the Legends Football League.

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:
