Lingerie Football League Bounces To Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — As some continue to argue the merits of outdoor football in Minnesota, there must at least a few women who might be glad the sport remains indoors.

That’s because the Lingerie Football League is set to expand into the Twin Cities this fall.

The LFL announced the 11th franchise was granted to Minneapolis, and the full-contact action will soon be coming to the Target Center.

The sport has made a name for itself by showing scantily clad women in pads playing no-holds barred football.

Among the other cities being included in the expansion are Cleveland, Las Vegas and, yes, Green Bay.

The Minnesota team, whatever it ends up being named (the comments section below is open to suggestions), will compete in the league’s Western Conference against the Seattle Mist, Los Angeles Temptation, Green Bay Chill and Chicago Bliss.

There will be an announcement about open tryouts sometime in the near future, so get your shoulder pads ready.

    when do we get men in scantily clothes playing football ..this wrong in so many ways I don’t know where to start, people will watch women play football IF they are not wearing a lot ? Stupid I thought we were above this… Even in Volleyball the women wear next to nothing the guys have long baggy shorts and shirts at least lets get the men playing without shirts, that would be more fair.

      Wow, life not treating you fair?

      1. 23yr old ex-exotic dancer says:

        Shut up BOB!!!!!!

        I WAS IN THE SEX INDUSTRY BEFORE I WAS LEGAL AGE, UNTIL I FOUND A FRIEND WHO CARED ABOUT ME AND HELPED ME GO TO COLLEGE. YOU MEN WHO ARE OUT THERE WHO HAVE HURT ME, OTHER WOMEN LIKE THE MOTHER OF YOUR CHILDREN OR YOUR GIRLFREINDS ARE ALSO HURT YOUNG GIRLS WHO ARE CHILDREN!!!!!!

        ABSOULUTELY NONE OF THESE GIRLS WANT TO BE IN THE SEX INDUSTRY!!! WHY CANT YOU HELP THEM AND HELP CHANGE THE MEN IN OUT SOCIETY?!!

        IF YOU SUPPORT THIS YOU ALSO SUPPORT SEX TRAFFICING AND THE ABUSE OF ALL WOMEN EVEN YOUR MOM, YOUR DAUGHTER, YOUR SISTER, YOUR NEICE EVREYONE ALL WOMEN ARE AFFECTED BY THE SEX INDUSTRY AND SEX IN THE MEDIA!!!!!!!!!!!

        I AM SOOO GRATEFUL TO BE OUT AND WORKING ON MY MD IN PHYSICAL THERAPY AT U OF MN….I HOPE TO BE PART OF THE WOMEN’S RIGHTS MOVEMENT THAT IS CURRENTLY OCCURRING TODAY!!

        HOW DARE YOU JUDGE THAT WOMEN’S COMMENT ALL WOMEN ARE SUFFERING FROM THE ABUSE OF MEN WHETHER THEY TELL YOU OR NOT ITS HAPPENING, WHY DONT YOU HAVE A HEART TO HEART TALK WITH ALL THE WOMEN IN YOUR LIFE ABOUT HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT WOMEN BETRAYED AS SEX OBJECTS!

        1. Kris says:

          I laughed. I wonder if my wife feels betrayed as sex objects. I see college is working out well for you.

        2. Dr Jen says:

          I was a practicing physician in a hospital and enjoyed the work, but the political structure was so compressing, and I couldn’t express my female sexuality while at work.

          Now that I am a team doctor for a lingerie football team I am having more fun than ever and helping other fun and athletic women enjoy their sport.

          You’d be surprised how many are mothers and all around normal people, just enjoying the competition. I think I may actually play next year once I get some conditioning in.

        3. P says:

          Clearly you’re not in PT school since a degree in physical therapy is a DPT (Doctorate of Physical Therapy) and not an MD (I would certainly hope everyone who’s in PT school would know what degree they’re receiving). Also, please don’t negatively portray the University of Minnesota with your horrible spelling/grammar and childish stereotypes of men (and women). Thanks.

    2. married to the truth says:

      Ever watch the UFC? That is your half naked men sport right there! I know women that watch it just to check out the guys in their shorts and that’s it. Hey they do fight to, did you know that?!? What about the WWE? That is purely entertainment with half naked guys and women!? How about mens swimming? Another half naked guy sport. And then there is boxing. I mean they are pretty much half naked and they rub against eachotherand get all sweaty. How dare they have such a sport like that! Lol. You are coocoo lady! Get out more and you might find one of these events going on right in your back yard. Heck you would probably enjoy it for more than just the skin factor too!

      Now back to the story. I have watched one of these games before and all I can say is wow! These women go HARD! This is not your two hand touch or flag football! They pull hair to make tackles and anything else they get their hands on. They take pride in being tough and running over other women. Yes there is the skin factor that gets people in the seats, but that is with every sports event! People want to be entertained and this is just what it is! So go back to your twinkies and coke and stay locked in your house! These women are more physically fit than a lot of men! Come to just one game and see if your tune changes after watching one! These women would eat you alive and do so looking ten times better than most others.

      As far as a name. Twin cities Treasure. Minnesota Seduce(ers). Minneapolis Climax. Either one is winner!

    3. Lori says:

      I completely agree with HJ. Why can’t they wear actual uniforms??

      1. K. says:

        Let’s call the team the “Minnesota Bouncing Bimbos”!

      2. MNVixen76 says:

        Come out to watch the Minnesota Vixen, we play real football in real uniforms!

        1. Meats the need says:

          take off the uniforms and I will lol

          1. Joe says:

            How about the MN Vikequeens….oh wait,,,we already have them….

    4. jo jo says:

      how about the MN Norsewomen

    5. Lovely Lady says:

      I don’t know why so many women are so bothered by skin there is nothing wrong with being sexy!! more women should try it. MN has a semi pro women’s foot ball team and every year every seat in the place is full and they are fully covered. So i guess your ? is answered! You have a choice to play and watch if your a prude don’t play or watch stay home in your mans sweats!

    6. KH says:

      Whose above thie? I know I’m not.

    7. KH says:

      Who’se above this? I know I’m not…..

    8. CL says:

      as soon as the women lose their shirts the guys can lose theirs, meaning if a guy is going to display is pecks the girls need to do the same. abercrombie has got it right if guys can display there nips the girls should too.

    9. We all know what HJ stands for dude says:

      And you call yourself a married marine. Hey nobody asked so why are you telling?

  2. tom says:

    The Chicago Bliss are moving to Toyota Park which is an outside soccer stadium so that should be really interesting to see the ladies play football on those cool fall evenings……

  3. truth hurts says:

    If the players don’t like their job conditions or fat cats hoggin’ the $$$, they could always strike (form a union) unless they play in Green Bay, WI.

  4. Gusto says:

    I clicked on the “News” tab and this is the lead story. Is anyone at WCCO even slightly embarrased by this? How low can CCO go?

  5. erin says:

    HJ, we do have another women’s football team: the Minnesota Vixens.

    1. MNVixen76 says:

      Damn right we do! I play for the Vixen, and while I’m not arguing that many of these women ARE athletes, they are NOT playing standard football. The closest thing to what they do would be arena football, but even the guys in arena use football helmets, not lacross helmets. We play in the spring, and if you want to see real women playing real football, come check out a game!

    2. Lovely Lady says:

      There is also a nother team The Minnesota Machine!!!!!!!!!

  6. joe says:

    HJ: These women are ACTUALLY very good football players if you’ve ever watched it. As for the football league, its called LIngerie Football. As a society, are we completely above adult enterainment? No.

    There are strip clubs and porn stores that are there for the entertainment of adluts. There is a womens football team here in minneapolis. I bet you can’t name it. For those who want to watch women play regular mens football they can go watch that team. Those who want to watch it in lin
    girie can join me at the Target Center!

    Quit raining on the parade.

    1. HJ says:

      I have a friend that does play for the Vixen yes I know them, and “adult entertainment ” ?? so this is on TV after 10 and not on weekends no children will watch this type of football…really ?

      So Stupid everyone cheering for cold weather so what you can see something big deal big F’n deal grow up!!!

      1. Bud says:

        What does “HJ” really stand for???? Something kinky I bet.

      2. Realist says:

        I am guessing HJ is a full-figured gal, who was scorned by a past lover, left for some younger, more intellitgent and secure female. She gave the ultimatum of her way or the highway and has Daddy issues..NAILED IT!

        It is entertainemnt, you don’t want to see it, or children to see it, then don’t let them, it is as simple as that.

        If you are a parent then be one and not a friend.

        Scorned divorcee, so easy to tell…

        LOVE YOU WHEN YOU’RE MAAAAAAAD!

        1. Charlie says:

          You nailed it!

          WINNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        2. MNVixen76 says:

          Let me guess, 15, zits, no girl will talk to you. Either that or 45, unemployed, 500 pounds and no woman has EVER talked to you. Talk about insecure with issues! Grow up.

          1. Feminist says:

            Agree with HJ and MNVixen76!

        3. HJ says:

          You guessed wrong HJ=Hank Jonner I’m an ex marine married to a wonderful woman for 10 years and I have 2 lovely daughters, both of which I would not like to see exploted when they grow up and would rather them be thought of as “adult entertainment ” when they grow up… those women are not playing football they are out they showing off what they have!

          1. Brian says:

            God forbid they are allowed to show off what they have.

            No such thing as an ex marine, and if you actually were one then you would respect our rights to individual freedoms, the rights you fought to protect.

            If these girls want to play in small outfits and people will pay to see em then move along bud.

      3. gmoney says:

        if u dont like it no one says u have to watch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! quit worrying about everyone else and and society and worry about yourself. this wont affect u at ALL. everyone is just getting a kick out of u making such a big deal. o and i bet u like the attention. typical woman.

    1. A says:

      I like the Min/St. Paul Bunyums. Hahaha

  8. Anonymous Coward says:

    The Minnesota Frigid!

    1. Doug Turner says:

      Bang – spot on!

      As one would like the team to reflect the area. How about “Minnesota Glaciers” – slow and cold🙂

  9. Momma of 2 says:

    This is just another place for hoochie girls to be seen and get attention. They obviously don’t respect thereself enough to get a real job and be a real woman.

    It’s the easy way out for these girls AND of course men will drool over them because they are pigs like that. This is pathetic to say the least!!!!

    1. joe (not the same joe) says:

      Many of the girls who play in the LFL are people who are fitness models, fitness models wear less than lingirie football players do.
      They just do this so that they can have fun and stay in shape.

      I can guarantee this isnt going to get them nearly enough money to not have a “real” job.

    2. Hugh says:

      And I suppose the tiny little outfits worn by gymnasts is OK with you? What about the outfits that are wore on that Dancing show that most of America watches? Lets not even get into some of the outfits that are worn by the cheerleaders at different sporing events.

      I very seriously doubt that any ‘hoochie’ girl would be able to make it through the try-outs. These ladies are athletes, lets not forget that.

      And I for one would be the first to sell my season tickets if Pat Williams ever decided to play in any outfit resembling what the LFL has.

    3. Tina says:

      What exactly is a “real” job according to you?

    4. Realist says:

      Wow, “hoochie girls”, and you only have 2 kids? Hard to believe, let me guess, “chubby” white girl, who was “dissed” by a brotha for some other scratch…oh and blonde too, bottle blonde that is…

      2 for 2 today!

      VIVA NEPAL!

      1. Momma of 2 says:

        Realist – Good try, but I’ve been married for over eight years and my children are with the person I am married to. I wouldn’t say I’m “chubby” but I’m not a stick thin girl either. I have curves and my husband loooooves them🙂

        I’ve never dated a “brotha” and obviously won’t, as I AM MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!! I am blonde, but was given this hair color by the man upstairs.

        You think you’re so funny, but jokes on you since you were WRONG on every account. Sucka!!!!

    5. notaprude says:

      OH MY GOD, RELAX!!! There are far more serious problems in the world for people to get so upset about this!!!! If you have a problem with it, DON’T WATCH IT!!!!

      YES! haha. or the Minnesotata’s

      1. jordan says:

        Minnesotata’s = perfect

  11. 40 Something Gal says:

    Gals…sounds like there’s a bit of animosity out there for the Lingerie Team and it sounds more like jealously to me. Your guys are looking, not playing. Who cares if they look.

    Momma of 2 – there is no reason to judge the players. You don’t know them, you don’t know what drives them. Perhaps they are full of self-confidence and athleticism and want to play football in their underwear because they are proud of their bodies. Then again, maybe they’re getting paid a lot of money? Who cares. It’s their choice.

    And HJ – we’ll get to see men playing football in their underwear when we ASK for it or when some enterprising gal convinces (or pays) guys enough to start a bikini league of their own. Wouldn’t that be a hoot.

    As far as the team name goes…guys please, no ice / frigid connotations. It’s too bad Minnesota Wild is already taken, eh? (chuckle)

    1. gmoney says:

      why cant more women be like u!!??? i like ur attitude towards the whole thing.

  12. HAHA says:

    Hoochie girls? Adult entertainment?! LOL! Like mentioned above, a lot of these women have jobs as personal trainers, models, etc. Sounds like these beautiful, athletic women will give the women in MN something else to complain about.

  13. Glanzer says:

    I bet this Minnesota lingerie team wins a championship before any of our other teams.

    1. A says:

      hahaha, that’s funny!

  14. KES says:

    HAHA – are you saying MN women aren’t beautiful or athletic…just complainers? RUDE! and untrue…🙂

      Yep, fugly, cold and bitter just as our winters. No personality or depth. Soon you will see urianals in the Womens bathroom, how dare a man stand and pee and I can’t!

    Their dads must be so proud. I can just see all the dads and their guy friends cheering them on.
    Gross

    1. Panda Gust Rutherford says:

      Dude, I am totally going to go WITH my dad to one of these events. Some people need to open their minds a little. Good LAWD! Its all in good fun!

    “Twin Sizzle” which is a play on Twin Ciites

  18. EJ says:

    So this is “news” ??? Sad.

  19. Fingerpointers? says:

    As long as men are willing to pay to degrade women, some women will be more then willing to step up and provide the service. For these “athletes”, it’s $100 a game. And as for who ever said they are often models looking to show off their bodies- how many models are covered in bruises for their photo shoots? What is really sad is these women are too healthy looking to be real models anyway. So, no finger pointing. Both sexes are equally to blame. Eventually, the men will realize they haven’t been the ones in control all these years- it’s been the women who were using them…..

  50. Sandi says:

    I’m one of those women who was totally confused about the sex industry and ended up a victim of it. My dad traded me to his buddies so he could look like a big shot when I was 7, and in the 70s when everyone was hollering “peace and love,” my first husband was selling me. Both of these guys were considered fine upstanding citizens, and so, of course, I believed I was just being “free.” It took 15 years of therapy and another 40 of living a normal life to recover to the point where I can actually talk about it. So, forgive me if I’m impatient with guys who want equally confused women to punch each other out while wearing lingerie. What the hell is wrong with you guys?

  51. shellie says:

    Well i dont know what the big deal is. i am a college educated, hard working 24 year old with a “real” job and i plan on trying out. not for attention, not to be a “hoochie”, but because i think it would be great fun to run around in my underwear.
