Lingerie Football League changes name; players to wear uniforms
The favorite football league of many desperate and lonely men is no more. The Lingerie Football League has announced plans to rename itself the Legends Football League and said it will no longer have its players compete while wearing lingerie.
“This is the next step in the maturation of our now global sport. While the Lingerie Football League name has drawn great media attention allowing us to showcase the sport to millions, we have now reached a crossroad of gaining credibility as a sport or continuing to be viewed as a gimmick,” said Mitchell S. Mortaza, the founder of the league.
“In the coming years we will further establish this sport in the U.S., Australia, Europe and Asia as the most known form of American football globally. In order to reach the next milestone, we feel the focus has to be the sport and our amazing athletes.”
Other changes include redesigned team logos that remove “sexy female figures” and changing their slogan from “True Fantasy Football” to “Women of the Gridiron.”
But how much has the league really changed? The league also posted a promotional video on its website featuring players working out in very revealing gear. So, not everything has changed.
