Lingerie Football League

NFL's Failed Female Kicker

Isn't LFL Material

EXCLUSIVE

The female kicker who bombed her NFL tryout isn't even good enough to play for the Lingerie Football League ... according to an LFL rep, who tells TMZ, they're only interested in "real" football players.

You'll recall, Lauren Silberman made history yesterday -- becoming the first woman ever to try out for the NFL ... while humiliating herself on a national scale in the process.

Silberman -- a former soccer player from the University of Wisconsin -- completely botched two kicks ... propelling them roughly 15 yards each ... before calling it quits with a quadricep injury.



But even though Lauren is kinda cute, the LFL (which now officially stands for Legends Football League) says it's "only interested in real football players, not soccer players turned kickers. We don't have girls that just kick in our league."

FYI -- there ARE kickers in the LFL ... but they play other positions as well.

Hehe. Positions.

Even if she could kick a 70 yard FG she still wouldn't make the NFL because she has a vagina.

THE PROBLEM IS THESE SOCCER PLAYERS HAVE TO ADJUST TO KICKING A FOOTBALL. TONS OF SOCCER PLAYERS TURNED KICKERS IN THE NFL. SOME EVEN COME FROM THE UK ----> THE BLASPHEMY!! POINT IS U DONT KICK A FOOTBALL DIRECT STRAIGHT ON IN 90 DEGREE ANGLE. THIS SH*T RIGHT HERE IS WUT HAPPENS WHEN U DO... U HAVE TO KICK IT SLANTED ON AN ANGLE TO GAIN LEVERAGE AND MAKE THE FOOTBALL FLY IN A STRAIGHT LINE. PLANT FOOT HAS TO BE IN LINE WITH THE FOOTBALL TO GET PROPER ROTATION AND LEVERAGE IN THE OTHER KICKING LEG. THAT'S WHY U SEE NFL KICKERS LINE UP SLANTED LIKE 20-30 DEGREES OFF IN THE RUNNING START. #TRUTH!!

The only thing she's good for is to stay in the locker rooms and make good use of her mouth.

I'm a woman, and I feel she should feel proud for trying out. But, what's the point anyway. I hope the nfl never let's women in the next thing you know. The female players are getting pregnant and want nurseries in the locker rooms etc. then here comes Gloria Ahlred( or whatever her name is) filing a suit with claims of harassment because she was untreatedl fairly. That the male football players are using bad language in front of the kiddies, then all of the women groups will come out of the woodwork boohooing about something. Keep women out of the nfl. I'm all for empowerment but even I will admit when we need to leave enough alone, there are something we can't do professionally and that means playing with the big boys

She didn't humiliate herself. At least she tried. She set a precedent for women. Some women have played varsity football in highschool on the men's teams already. She looks too small for this sport. I am sure there some girls who could do it too. I think it would be cool if they wanted to.


At least they let her try out. I like how Danica Patrick is winning the positions and good places in NASCAR also.

LOSER!!!! She tried out to be a kicker, and kicked the ball 13 yards. Please get a life and stop wasting our time.
A quick story, I went to a high school that was home to a powerhouse girls basketball program. They won a state title and always competed at the highest level. One day they scrimmaged the 7th grade boys team, and lost by 20.

BITCH IS A JOKE. SHE CANT EVEN KICK THE FOOTBALL RIGHT. SEE IN THE FOTO HOW HER PLANT FOOT IS LIKE 6 INCHES BEHIND THE FOOTBALL? THAT CAUSES THE KICKING FOOT TO HIT THE BALL IN THE MIDDLE NOT THE BOTTOM. THAT MAKES THE FOOTBALL TO LOSE HEIGHT AND MAKES HER LOOK LIKE A WUSSIE THAT SHE IS. MAN, LEARN TO KICK PROPERLY B4 ****ING PLAYING WITH GRADE SKOOL BOYS LET ALONE THE PRO'S. #TRUTH!!

I'd like the LFL to explain to the world, if you have "REAL" football players why do you need to put them in Lingerie? Legends now? Oh please, the LFL can't even pay their players, the Canadian team here is doing it for free right now.
