Some people think football is to tough for girls and guys to play against each other.

That sounds sexist, if girls want to play, they should be able to!

Girls are allowed to play football; there's a girl on my sister's old highschool's team.
Your gym teacher is being sexist, and I believe that you can sue him for discrimination.

Lol, want my opinion? I think girls are good at soccer but some choose to go on a team and chat with there friend teammates, or some just cherrie pick waiting for the ball. While others try but don't know how to kick a ball, if I'm walking and a girl from the other team comes, she ends up my leg and not the ball... :(

if its a football team full of boys then girls cant play. because boys are physically stronger than girls and i dont think a boy would want to tackle a girl.

I think its not allowed in professional football, unless theres special girl's teams. But in school and stuff, just for fun girls can. That teacher is discriminating gender.

They can, but guys prefer girls not to play because they can get hurt easily. That coach just probably didn't like girls playing football.

You can play flag football. You can even play touch football with Alan Alda and perhaps Doctor Phil or Phil Donohue. You cannot play in the AFL or NFL because you personally do not have what it takes to play there even as a place kicker. You WILL be mowed down eventually. That is not to say a female will NEVER play in the NFL, but the first one who attempts to break those ranks will probably be subjected to an "initiation" that will be far worse than the first African American to ever play professional sports. Ditto college football. If you decide to pursue such a goal, don't say you haven't been warned.

Women have already played on College Football Teams.
On Sunday, Lauren Silberman, will be the first woman to tryout for an NFL team at the Regional Combine in Jets Stadium. In 2012, the NFL made a Binding decision to allow Women to legally play in the NFL.

To Lynnelynne: Thank you for your comments. I don't know what college football teams have allowed women to play or in what positions. I am NOT saying you are full of it, but I am SUGGESTING that if true, then these females were probably "playing" in a "third string" capacity on some Junior college football team that no one has ever heard of. I find it doubtful that a female has played football in any position for a "Pac 10" or other well known college "league". As for the gal who tried out as a kicker, I understand she has been rejected. Even if she was as good as any professional male kicker, and actually made the team, I believe that whatever team she played on would give her a hard time. She would have to have a lot of "intestinal fortitude" AKA "balls" to remain. Still, I would be curious if a female actually makes it to some professional football, baseball, or even basketball team and remains there. When women have "arrived" or broken through the "glass ceiling" is when they make it to the ring or Octagon and take on a "Mike Tyson", "Chuck Liddell", "Tito Ortiz", etc,

I don't wish to disrespect you at all but I do want to set the record straight.
As you probably know, Lauren Silberman had a leg injury and did not preform well at the Jet's combine. She only took 3 kicks before she withdrew due to fear of further injury, as she plans to give it another shot next year.
As for Women playing in the NCAA, with all due respect you are wrong. On 1/5/2005, Ashley Martin was the first female in Division 1-AA, to kick and score. In the first quarter she scored the extra point and added two more kicks for extra points in the game. She played for Jacksonville State.
Prior to that, 2 other women suited up but did not play for two different Division 1-A schools. Kathy Klop,1995 University of Louisville and Katie Hnida, University of Colorado, 1999.
All three women spoke to the issue of how they were treated by their Teammates. All stated they were welcomed and treated just as their male teammates were. That included hazing and pranks, none mean spirited.

To Lynnelynne: Again thank you for the information. I am really not the biggest sports fan in the world. I probably should have done as you suggested and Googled the information for myself. As of this typing, I have yet to do so, and as a result will take your word for it. If women can go and get themselves disfigured in combat, then WHY NOT play pro football? I'll dare say I'm amazed that the women you mention were not subjected to any serious hazing by their teammates. Still, if I see a woman take on a man in the ring or octagon, then for sure they will have at least put a crack in the so-called glass ceiling. Or better yet if a woman is allowed membership in full standing with a local Hells Angel chapter and is allowed to have an "old man" ride on the back of her hog, THEN she will have truly "arrived". The old Virginia Slims ad should have said: "You still have a little way to go baby"

To Lynnelynne: I just want to emphasize here in this comment that everything I typed in the previous comment was all meant in good fun. : )

Lol, I took it as such. It is very funny, I don't know why I got so defensive about the issue anyway. And you are right on the scenario of breaking the glass ceiling, it will be very hard for a woman to crack that ceiling. The only woman I can even think of that has made it into a "man's" sport is Danika Patrick and I believe she had family that raced before her.
It really cracked me up that you used that specific M.C. Club as an example. All I could picture was my Sister In Law driving with my Brother on the back. You had me in tears laughing so hard. Point for you.
It has been a pleasure going back and forth with you. It's been fun, hopefully we will run into each other again.

They should be able to my coach said I couldn't wrestle on the schools junior high team I find that sexist and unfair girls can do anything guys can do looking back in history I think girls are stronger because of the fact that they had to put up with sexist people saying what they can and can't do if that teacher says you can't play again go tell him to say that to the principal and when see if he keeps his job

girls can play if they give consent for the others (as in boys or who ever is playing at the time) to tackle/touch them to end the down. I'm for the girls who want to play because it would be sexist if they couldn't play.
