Female Football Player Rights

I believe that the National Football League (NFL) and Colleges in the United states should discuss creating a professional football league and college league for women. Yes, girls can play football in high school and some play recreationally, but they should allow us to play in college and professionally also! Being a tomboy, I play football often during my daily school break, and find a lot of fun in the activity. I'm sure I speak for some of the female race when I state that it is unfair for us women not being able to play football professionally/in college by law!


As I stated earlier, I play football recreationally with a lot of the guys in my middle school. I am the only female to play the sport there, but I am also one of the best! I can throw a perfect spiral a good thirty yards, I can run faster than 98% of the guys in my middle school, and am one of the best recievers our teams have. I played flag football when I was in elementary school, and am considering playing in high school. But here's where I'm at a loss: Why play in high school if I can't continue to play in college and in my adult life AFTER college like I can in the other sports I participate in? There isn't a point. Which is also why I'm stressing the fact that the NFL and colleges nation wide should hear me out. I think it would be worth while, and would NOT be a waste of our time and money. I can only assume this, but a lot of women out of the American population do play football, and some may want to play professionally, me being one of the main contenders. So, can someone PLEASE tell me, why CAN'T we play?

I wrote this because I feel us women have just as much of a right to play football as men do.

Uh, no, we aren't as strong/stronger. We have the same rights as men now. in the eighteen hundreds maybe we didn't, but we do now. Just like the whole black racism thing, Women have he same rights now, but we didn't have then. There's no point in saying we don't, and demanding for 'justice'

If you want a football league you should create it yourself there's is enough woman to do that so stop complaining for others to create a league build the league your self this is what the nfl did or you can get good enough and actually play in the nfl.

You're so dumb. I play football. I can take a hit. I'm female. Actually, I took the hardest hit out of everyone on the whole team this year. I'm 5'7 and I got tackled by a guy who is 6'6. You know what I did? I jumped right back up and played the next play. Not all girls are "sensitive". Don't stereotype us.

What the hell. You guys are sexist. I'm a girl and I play football. I played in middle school and I am going to in high school. I can grab the ball right. I'm not a perv in the locker room. I'm actually better then a lot of the players on our team. Females are just as capable as men in sports.

women should have their own separate league from the nfl, just because it would be more competitive when playing each other not saying that they cant compete with the players in the NFL but just it would be more logical to start a women's league first and to see how that goes

Who cares what gender/sex it shouldn't matter women is as strong as men. back in the day man was supposed to do all the sports and destructive stuff while women stayed in the house to cook, clean ,and do all the house work. I think if women/ girls wanna take that risk let them. I'm speaking from a girls point of view I play football every day and every day it's more boys bigger than me but that doesn't scared me. When I play football I don't get tackled its not the fact cause I'm a girl but is because im to fast for them to catch

@NFL League I don,t think its guys being scared of hurting the girls I think its fear of getting beat by them.

Girls have the same rights as men and people should stop being sexist.

I strongly believe that if we have a fundraiser for girls to play football we could raise some money and we could talk to some people and see if we can start girl football for all ages!

I think that girls should have their own league of football.They would get hurt playing with men.

We think girls should be in the NFLbecause women should have more rights to play more sports.Females do not have many sports or rights as men.If they should be able to play high school football,but not college? women are as strong or can be stronger than men.Rhonda Rousey,Liz carmouwzhe,Vanzant,Cat Zingano,miesshatate are some examples of strong women.Women need the same rights as men do in the U.S.A The other side might say they are not allowed to play football because they too weak and can get easier than men.The argument is that the weakness of that women can juke men and can be stronger or as strong as men. They could plow over men. That's our opinion about women playing football in college and the nfl.

The women want to be paid the same amount of money as the NFL instead of a dollar a game and twelve dollars a season.Some of the women don't want to play with the guys.They literally said they don't want to play with the guy. Some women want to play with men, but they don't know how strong they are.The ball can't even hold the ball.Also the women would hey hurt with the men.

Do you think women should play football? No! Football is for men! Here are some facts. Women can get other jobs! YOu can be any thing you want, but a football player? NOPE! Also the ball is to big. Women can't grab it right.

I think girls should play football because a lot of girls around the world love to play this sport. For example anna zerill is the first female fresh man to ever score points. Some girls are better than boys at football. And girls dont have very many sports as boys. Some girls are not as strong as some of the boys. Girls should play because it is the right thing to do instead of tell them not to do the sport. The first woman coach is janwelter why can she coach.
