Well if they aint playing the lingerie version they’ll get no support from me. If they want to play a hard and dirty proper game they should play rugby, like true Aussies!

Clear Troll, but take a history lesson sunshine, just the same.

There is know lingerie in this game, just nice tight shorts and the breasts are covered by the pads and shirt but the belly showing.

These are real women playing in more athletic clothing which is really appealing and that is what makes it more sexy.

Oh FFS. So it is basically the same thing as lingerie football but with slightly more clothing?

How about Grid IRon League (GIRL)?

Football is too generic; I assumed AFL when I first started reading, and of course soccer calls itself football (in most of the world).

I am too much of a wimp ever to have played this type of contact sport, but good on you and good luck!

More power to them.

But if the Australian-based LFL truly wants to disassociate their league from the “other” one and its image, then perhaps choose a different acronym and refrain from describing themselves as sexy.

Just a thought.

True, the ‘sexy’ comment made me assume ti was that god awful lingerie crap

I think that if the ACT can embrace roller-derby without the “I go for the eye-candy” commentary, the Canberra LFL should be no different. Thanks again Dani123 – keep up the great work,

I admit my first though at this media release was “hasn’t roller derby cornered the market in Canberra for teams sports for woman with violence issues”?

Thanks OP – As a ACTG player I’ve been aware of this initiative for some time and think it’s excellent.

I’d agree that LFL is an unfortunate “branding” given the existence of the Lingerie Football League, but I’d clarify for the RA faithful that this competition is definately not about gettting sports-models in skimpy clothing pretending to play a watered down version of the sport.

In fact, based on my interaction with the players and coaching staff, this is one of the stereotypes these ladies are trying to avoid. So please, be aware that ongoing commentary likening these ladies to the “other” LFL will only discourage prospective players (perhaps your wives/girlfriends/sisters/friends) from being part of a great sport. I’m not having a crack at anyone who posted for larfs or genuine questions – entirely reasonable given the name of the comp.

I think that if the ACT can embrace roller-derby without the “I go for the eye-candy” commentary, the Canberra LFL should be no different. Thanks again Dani123 – keep up the great work,

Obviously I could not volunteer to play, but I’m game to help out as team physio or shower attendant.

That was my assumption.

Also, who know a single space could mean so much… “Dont miss your chance to be apart of this.”
