Skimpy outfits will end someday, lingerie football player says
Some people are criticizing plans to bring "lingerie" football to Saskatoon and Regina, but a player says giving women who love football a chance to play is a good thing.
Liz Gorman, who plays with the Tampa Breeze of the women's Lingerie Football League, also thinks more traditional football attire will happen someday.
In Saskatchewan, there's been a buzz in recent weeks after the league announced two teams for the province. Some critics say making women dress in skimpy outfits is demeaning.
Gorman says she'd rather wear a more conventional uniform, but understands it's a business consideration.
"I mean, I don't like it," she said. "You'd rather wear full clothing. I have a bunch of scrapes on me."
Gorman believes the league will eventually evolve to the point that the more revealing outfits will go.
"You look back at basketball, you used to have to wear skirts," she said. "Obviously it's changed, they have the WNBA now. So if you look back, women's sports has constantly evolved and I think that this sports league is going to end up changing the uniform."
The first Lingerie Football League games in Saskatchewan are scheduled for the fall.
