'Lingerie' Football League

Coach 'Under Review' for Locker Room Meltdown

EXCLUSIVE

041113_lfl_meltdown_launchA pro football coach is under fire for a locker room tirade in which he asked the players if they were "f**king retarded" ... but it didn't go down in the NFL -- it happened in a female football league. 

TMZ has learned ... the Legends Football League (formerly known as the Lingerie Football League) is investigating Seattle Mist head coach Chris Michaelson for an angry expletive-filled halftime speech delivered during last week's matchup with the Green Bay Chill.

During the rant, Michaelson went full Rutgers on this team -- blasting his players for giving up a last-second TD before the half -- screaming, "Are you guys just f**king retarded???"

A rep for the league tells TMZ the matter is under review by the commissioner’s office ... explaining, "Everything is in line as far as what is expected from a football locker room, but we don't condone the use of the word retarded.”

FYI -- Coach Michaelson's offensive speech seemed to work ... because the Mist dominated the Chill in the 2nd half to win the game 55-36.

If it's such a bad word then why do you *** out F'ing, but not retarded? Shouldn't it be: You're F***ing R****ed?

The commish of the LFL berates every single one of his players and disrespects them. The Mist coached learned from the league commish/owner so he will either not be punished or made a scapegoat. These girls are morons to play for no pay and to put up with this crap.

Why is everyone so freakin’ sensitive nowadays? Retarded means slow or delayed. By definition, his use of the word was very appropriate for this particular situation. He was telling them to do something and they didn’t do it. They’re movement was slow or retarded. Loosen up, people.

In the LFL we call this discipline.... it gets our head back in the game. Makes us remember why we are in that locker room. All coaches scream like that, Some just choose to use different words.

It is offensive to say the R word as he meant it. It was said as a slur, not meant to inspire them to move faster, note the fact he used F*&*ing before it. Its ok to use the word retard in its correct context...this was not one of them. Proud mom of a severely multiply impaired son who used his brain as best he could....
