What would the Lingerie Football League be without Lingerie? I guess it would just be the Football League, but that might get confusing — you know with the National Football League already being kind of a big deal and all. The LFL has been increasing in popularity lately, with 12 teams in the United States, six in Canada, and four more set to join in Australia next year. My gut tells me the skimpy outfits are one of the main reasons the league has been so well-received, but Liz Gorman of the Tampa Breeze is hoping to do away with it in the future.
“I mean, I don’t like it,” Gorman said according to CBC News in Saskatchewan. “You’d rather wear full clothing. I have a bunch of scrapes on me.
“You look back at basketball, you used to have to wear skirts. Obviously it’s changed, they have the WNBA now. So if you look back, women’s sports has constantly evolved and I think that this sports league is going to end up changing the uniform.”
Yeah, about that. Maybe I haven’t watched enough Lingerie League games, but something tells me the lingerie part is more than just a minor detail. They didn’t feature a full spread in Playboy for no reason. Even if the girls get good enough at football to make the outfits a more minor detail, my guess is revenue would dip quite a bit if they put more clothes on.
