I talked to my girl Nance yesterday.
I asked her what she thought.
She stated frankly that female lineman could NOT play D-1 football.
There may be a couple who might play low D-3 (these are big girls who have, shall we say, ample supply's of "supplements).

At the skill positions, maybe a couple at receiver spots.

I ask here if she thought any of the O/T she new could stop my pass rush (I was a D/E).

She doubted it.

That is right from a players mouth.
I know this player, I know her passion and her work ethic.
She works very hard in the weight room both during the season & off season.

I respect them for doing it, but the dont play the same game men do!

You need to re-read my post. I mentioned BASKETBALL. I mention this sport because they have have been around for a while. I would never try to compare a women's football team to a men's football team because there are just too many variables that a women would have to overcome, such as the physical part. At the same time, there are those on here that just want to discount them just because they are women. I say give them a chance and if you had women playing football for as long as men do now, you might be surprised. There were plenty of men that discounted women in sports, including basketball, to the point they didn't have sports in High School. Look at women's sports now. Hence me saying that you could have some women competitive at the college ranks.

I will give an example. A couple of years ago Wisconsin had a state runner up in wrestling that was a girl and the championship was a close match. She worked extra hard to overcome some of the physical aspects that work against a women and she was able to accomplish a great goal and it wasn't any fluke. I can assure you the guys that went out to wrestle her at State wrestled their hardest to win, but came up short.

So let me recap. Women were discounting back when I went to High School as people thought they couldn't match with men's athletic abilities. Well, I think they have proved that wrong. Yes, there will always be the physical aspect that will hurt them, but that aside, they can be just as good as men in athletic ability.

So road kill, you want to try to spin this?

Nance is the mechanic on my H-D!!

I met her g/f as well.

nuff said!!??!!??

BTW--neither could play at the level I played at, but they are competitive and take it seriously!!

Additionally, I would say your comment of "nuff said!!??!!??" which says more about you than anything. Apparently, you live a life of stereotypes, which is just sad!!

Because they are funded by the NBA

Well that can't be a good monetary situation for the NBA. I mean, I swear there's more people at NBA summer league games than Game 7 of the WNBA Finals.

WNBA teams use NBA arenas, so those numbers are horrible. Considering those were the FINALS, that's really bad.

Games 1 and 2 were in San Antonio. The AT&T Center has a capacity of 18.7K. To only get 9K for game one (half empty arena) is pathetic. Game 2 was a better turnout.

Game 3 was in Detroit. The Palace seats over 22K. The Shock only drew 9K for the game.

Everyone is spoiled in watching high flying and high scoring NBA and Men's College Basketball games. We think of basketball as dunks, long-ranges threes, fade-aways, and shots in the line with extended contact. One sees little to none of that in the WNBA, hence people don't watch it.

Also, it happens during the summer. People spent all winter watching basketball, now we want to watch baseball and get ready for football season.
The Brewers will finish 90-72 and earn the #1 WC berth.

Carlos Gomez will have a 30/40 season (HR/SB) and win a 2nd Gold Glove en route to an All Star selection.

I am well aware of that and was only pointing out that the comment comparing it to NBA summer league games was off base. Do summer league games get anywhere close to 8 k ? Or even half of that.
