'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.

Wow, is every little F****** word an issue in today's society. SO WHAT he said retarded IN A locker room giving a heated speech to get the women riled up. WHO GIVES A ****. I am so sick or society labeling what you can and can't say. Where I grew up it was nothing to say sure by' you're some retarded. No one took it as an insult. These days they are about ready to throw you in jail. Now that's RETARDED. ;) (btw, they went back and WON)

I too subscribe to the negative reinforcement school of thought. I teach a Lego camp and call the kids all sorts of names when they build a crappy model. I call the kids names like fat, ugly and stupid. Sometimes it works and they build better models.

I'm usually the most prim and proper person, but dang, every word you say these days is being sanction. This is why I go to school online and work from home. You can't say nothing without being accused, investigated, shoosh'd or sued. Mercy.

What do you want a coach that will cuddle you when you screw up. He did nothing wrong and this shouldn't be on TMZ. However, since they are some hot chicks I don't mind.
This is just someone stupid trying to make news since that other coach was being abusive.

Why are some people so ignorant that they think using the word retarded in that context is offensive? The actual term is Mental Retardation, and with verb conjugation it is correct to say retarded. And retarded itself is an appropriate word that does not have to be linked to a mental disorder. It means slow and doesn't have to made out to be derogatory.
