Think about this: Some of the guys trying to tackle the two female football kickers featured on Friday's show weigh twice as much as the girls do! That doesn't seem to bother the kickers, though - one of them even said she wanted to tackle.
Now I don't know if most of you other girls out there would want to go up against 200-plus-pound guys. But whether you're a guy or a girl, I would like to know what you think of girls on a guys' football team.

Girls can play as good as the boys. What's the difference?
i think its funny but it all depends on the girl. if she enjoys playing football then it wouldnt be such a bad idea to get practice with the boys. i know i would want to:]
i think its fine , gets some muscles in the field.
I think girls should play football too. I think this because it is a girls sport too.
So WHAT!!!! Girls should play football more often.
I think having female football players is kinda cool because it gives the females a chance to play a boys sport
I think girls should play football, why not. Maybe girls are better than guys.
i think the girls playing football was funny cause my dads a football coach and i really wanna play but im to scard
i like the idea
I think it's great that girls can go do what they like to do without being criticized.
I think its cool that the girls aren't afraid to be on the football team. If thats what their dream is, they should be able do do it!
I think that it is great that girls want to go out for the football team. I personally think that no sport should be gender defined because I happen to be a student that would play field hockey if I wasn't a soccer fanatic. this is a great demonstration of how you can do anything if you set your mind to it.
it is a GREAT idea! I haven't been thinking about football lately (sure my dad has) but, It is an awsome idea i'm sure all the girls would like it!
I play Field Hockey and that is girls sport but thinking about girls on a football team is a little odd, but it is cool that those girls are stepping out.
i think we should have more girls go out for football it really shows theres no sport a girl can't do same for boys 🙂
I think that girls should play any sport. Who cares if they good or bad . i play football and we had a girl play 1 year and she was good.
ITS AWESOME!! (as Carl would say it) I think its great to show equality in these schools we have today and this is a perfect example. KEEP KICKING GIRLS!
There is nothing wrong with girls playing football. It is cool!
MAN THAT WAS COOL
WoW that would be sooooooo cool I think! Show those guys who's
Show them what your made of and do what you enjoy!!! Do what you enjoy and keep it up!!!! – Amber
I think that girls have just as much chance as breaking something as guys, but that should be their choice and people shouldn't complain about girls being on a guys football team. Also don't tell us that we can't tackle or that we can't be quarterback and wide- reciever and stuff like that.
i THINK more hot chicks should play more football
i think its great girls playing football
We think its cool and scary at the same time>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I think that that girls should be abel to play, because if there benifiting the team then its still a win it dosent matter who kicks the ball. I also think that a girl can tackle if shes abel but most cant, if u can go for it!
I think girls playing football is a great idea!I am a girl so that may be why I think it`s a great idea, if the girls are good enough to be out there on the field.I think she should at least have a chance.I don`t think it`s fair that some people think that just because it`s a contact sport ,or because it`s always been a guys sport doesn`t mean girls can`t play it.Some girls are actually very athletic and they like getting out there and trying there hardest.
It doesn't matter if you are a girl on a football team the only thing that matters is having fun and WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But winning is not everything.
I think it's okay if you are strong. But if you're not, well...for your own good,don't. Those girls are just amazing! I really hope they won't get hurt! :O
i think that its odd but good for girls to do a harsh sport because they are usually going shopping or doing there nails but i think that its good for girls
I think that no matter the gender they should all get to do the things that guys get to do. If the girls want to hit let them. I know that the guys weigh more than 200 plus pounds but guys can get hurt doing it also.
I think that girls playing football is great, it teaches them self confidence and how to stand up to boys. I play football at my high school, in Muscatine iowa. i play safety and linemen or linebacker. Being on the football team gives you alot of respect from other boys and teachers.
i think that it is great that she is wanting to try to hang with the guys but i also think thats why there is powder-puff. so they both need to try that because like that one girl said she wants to tackle and thats why there is powder-puff football.
Amanda thinks its really cool that they let girls play football. She says it's a very interesting sport and shouldn't just be for guys. She wants to play football in high school anyway.
Haylea agrees. Girls should be able to do the same sports that guys do. They are capable of it. So yeah, she thinks it's cool that girls play in high school football.
I think it is a very intersesting sport and it shouldnt be for just guys, it should be for all stundents. They are following thier dreams so I timk that they should not be kicked off the team!
I think it cool that they are letting grils play football. i'm a guy and i like volley ball and we can't play because were guys and they are saying it is a girl's sport .
Austin says-I think it's really good that there having fun, but if they get hurt really bad that would be bad. Cassaundra says-I think it's both a cool and bad thing. The bad part is they don't get to play just as much as a guy because nobody would want them to get hurt. The cool part is that girls are showing that they can do whatever a guy can do. That girls can do want ever the set there heart and mind to it, it will become a reality.
Dear CNN Student News,
We think it is completley fine that girls can play highschool football. It is no different from guys doing cheerleading or volleyball, ect. We think it was good of them to go for it even though it was a guy sport. If someone likes a sport it is completley fine to do it. No matter what gender! It is good that they did; the most important thing is for them to have fun and to enjoy the sport of football. Also, if any other girls wants to do another guy sport then they should be just as brave as these girls have.
Cassidy and Natalie!!
I think that female football players are pretty cool, but I think that the guys would fell bad if the tackled one of the girls. So the girls that are playing football are awesome!
i think it is cool they are letting girls paly cause a lot of girls want to be out there playing than sitting in the stands.
I think girls should be able to play football with boys becasue girls are equally talented. Those girls make field goals better than most boys I have seen.
i think its very cool i meen they are showing girls can do anything a guy can do.
i think gurls can play football i they really want too
I think girls playing football is fine. Girls should be treated equally.
I think its cool that girls play football
I think females should be allowed to play football because there are no diffrences in what they can do
I agree that girls should be able to play a guys sport because we are all equal.
Them girls got some heart playing a sport like this.
I love playing football. People say I'm good but I would never have enough nerve to try out. So shout out to the girls who do have the nerve.
If they want to play then let them play!
Girls can do anything guys can do!
Its awesome that girls are standing up for what they believe for
If they have the talent..then let them play.
Just because guys can do it doesnt mean girls cant!
I think its good for them to play because it would kind of make them have more confidence
Well there are a few exceptions i think of girls being able to play an actual position like QB or running back or linemen. Other than that there isnt much they can do because physically they arent big enough. I think as long as its only a few girls playing, who actually can, it isnt that bad of an idea.
The only problem i would have with girls plying football or anyother "guy sports" would be the guys. At my highschool in New York Mills i had a classmate that tried out for the football team and the guys were aggressivly harder on HER. They would talk about wanting to make her cry because it would show her that it was a guys sport. They didnt know people could hear them most of the time walkin in the halls. I supported my classmate and i wanted to see her play football, i didnt see anything wrong with it. I would love to see more girls go out and kick butt!
I think that girls should play football if they really want to. If they are good enough to be on the team, then I think that they have every right to play.
I thought it was pretty funny if they are willing to do it go for it!
I think it is a good idea because some girls are good at football and some boys are good at football also.
I think that it is good for girls to be on a guys football team cause it just shows that they can do a guys sport and that they are not afraid to be tackled, and the girls should tell their friends so they could maybe get another team going cause basically girls can do anything boys.
i love the idea of girls playing sports i know i wouldn't do it but that doesn't mean other girls can't it just goes to show there is nothing a boy can do that a girl can't
I think it's pretty cool that a girl is on a football team. I think girls should have the same rights as guys!
I think its great girls are in football!!!
I think it is great that girls like me can go out and do anything boys can do. Girl Power
I think that this is great! It's a great way for girls to finally do things that everybody thinks they can't. I think it's a great way for girls and boys to show off their skills. Woohoo GIRLS RULE!
And besides, who ever declared football to be a boy's sport! Girls can do anything boys can, even better.
i think that is very cool because they express there inner self
ok whoever think that girls cant do wat guys do are just plain out retards i mean like if a girl wants to play football soo what she might be way better than those boys u never know and they dont have to be big or fat or whatever they are very strong ang know how to play the game!!!! o and who ever thinks other wise think again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think it's so cool that girls are playing the sports they want to play.
I think that's really great!!!
Even though I'm a boy, I think girls can do what boys can do and some other things that boys can't do
I will say this only once. It will not catch on. Sure there will be more female kickers, but it will never be much more than that. Women just don't have the upper body strength to stand up against a skilled male linebacker.
I think its great!
I think that's awsome! They sould get a chance at whatever there pasion is and do what they wanna do.GACS ROCKS!!!!
I think that its a great idea for girls to play football with the guys!!!!
i think that female fottball is good for everyone, i want to play football as a girl and hope that this will make it happen
I think that it is okay to have a girl player(s) on a football team. They deserve to get in on the action that is happening. Yes it would be a little scary to face a bunch of tall, big guy, out there, but GO GIRLS!!!!! They need to stand up to boy, and have a little fun playing sports thaqt were ment for boys in the beginning. Now, the world is changing, and girls arn't just on the side lines, doing cheers for their favorite team. They are on the feild, and getting dirty!
I think that girls should stay with the makeup and shoes and do volunteer work around the house instead of taking the spotlight away form the tough guys. Guys are more tougher that I think Obama and Biden will win. I don't think that girls sould play football. They will try to make a complaint why they cant go to practice like " I'm douing my hair," of maybe " I have pinples on my face.They will just ruin the sport with lipstick on the ball!!!! they will worry about getting mud on their jerseys.
Boys rule! Girls drool.
I think its great and maybe someday the high school could actually make a girl football team
I think it's terrible that they're even allowed on the team. I mean I'm all for women's rights but they are risking their safety by playing against much bigger people. Boys are naturally built to be bigger and stronger. If they want to play that bad they should try to get a all Female team organized.
I think that girls should definitely be able to play on a football team with the guys! How cool would it be to have your best friend take down a guy in a so-called "guy-sport"?
I believe that being equal is a good thing, and girls should be able to play football. But, having girls play on a guys team does seem harmful just because they could be hurt more easily. So, just like lacrosse or even rugby I think we should have female football teams. and maybe even a male volleyball team.
I think that girls on a football team is okay, but it all depends on the girl. I mean, girls and boys play soccer, so why not football? And besides, they're just kickers anyway. It's not like they're getting tackled 🙂
Why is that such a surprise? i haven't ever heard the foot ball game is only for men!
I find it perfectly fine if a girl wants to play football. It's their choice if they want to get creamed or be the ones giving the hits. Girls can play pee wee hockey with boys so why not football? Equality should be carried out even in sports. I think there should be a choice for the girls though. Whether to play on an all girls team, or play with the boys. Girls should have the same rights as guys, so i think that it's just their choice.
I absolutely think that girls should be able to play guys football. But the girls that are playing need to actually know how to play so they don't get seriously hurt. In order to be tackling with guys that weigh over 200 pounds the girls probably shouldn't weigh under 150 pounds. I know a lot of girls that are better at football then some of the guys I know on the football team, so skill wise guys aren't necessarily better, but size wise they usually are. Guys don't really need to go easy on the girls when they tackle, because if the girls aren't tough enough to be tackled, they probably shouldn't play.
I think girls should be able to play football if they want to. If they want to play with us then its fine becous some girls are really good at football and will help win or contrubute to the team. Girls SHOULD be able to play guys football.
girl should be able to do that
I think it is right that girls finally step up and show that girls can't just do a certain sport. My sister plays football I mean I am use to it. It it usually fun to go and watch her game. Their are times on the field when the guy's hit her on the field and don't evan know its a girl until she takes off her helmet. It is awesome that girls can play. I can't wait until more step up. You go girls.
I think that it right for girls to stand up for them selfs and get out on the field to play with the boys. Football traditionally started off a boys game, but all over the world girls are starting to play football and show everyone that football can become a girls game too.
I think that girls should be able to play what ever sport that they want but when they get hert or hit like a guy dont cry like a girl
I respect that the chicks ATTEMPT to play football... Some chicks, like the two kickers, are very good athletes. Im a guy but i know that takes a lot of courage to go out there and try out for the team. I think that those chicks are studs and I hope you guys have a good season...
I think that is cool how girls are playing football,but I don't think that they couldn't handle the tackling part.
I honestly think its a really good idea for girls to be playing football. Who cares if the guys are twice their size and weight! They obiviously know that they might get tackled or hurt, so who is anyone to say they cant? Girls can do anything guys can. And if they guys have a problem with a girl being on their team, I'm guessing its because they are affraid of the girl being better than himself.
And theres also no reason for the guys to take it easy on the girls.. They know what they are standing up agianst.
I think that it is just fine to have girls on the field with us guys i mean its there body let them deal with the bruses but i dont think its far to say that girls are the only ones not allowed in some sports because you dont see any guys playing softball in high school.
I have mixed feelings about this topic. For one I know of a couple towns that have girl kickers on their varsity teams and I think its kind of cool. But it's rough out there on the gridiron. To be playing with 200lbs plus guys and some players that might even going to play at good college football school. For even a guy their can be hits that can leave you on the ground a while. So I think if there would be enough girls that would want to be on an actual football team, pads and all. They should have a girls football team. That way it's with their caliber of play and probably even a little more fun. Don't get me wrong I don't think its wrong that they are playing football with guys, but maybe it could be better off for both sides if they would just have an all girls football team.
I think that it is great that a couple of chicks want to play football with the guys. Hey, if there good enough go ahead and join I'd like to see some girls smoke a couple guys!
I think those girls can do whatever they want to. If they're good enough to be on the boy's team and want to do it, go for it! Don't let anyone stop you! If these girls are going into boy's football, they probably already know the risks, and want to do it anyway. How would you feel if someone told you that you can't play the sport you love because of your gender? They let boys who aren't 200 lbs play, and who's to say the risk isn't the same for them as it is for the girls?
i think that it is a great idea for girls to play football. i think that it shows equality for everyone. are they playing on the team or there own team.
Girls are too baby to play football. Football is a man sport. Football is only for men . Football is tough and for strong men. People get hurt and injured in football.If a girl got tackle in football they would get injured badly.
its the players choice if they want to play let them play its like ernie davis(first african american to win hiesman trophy) nobody but the coach wanted him to play so they gave himm the choice
I think this is a great way to express your self. Girls can do whatever they want to do. ITS A FREE COUNTRY!!!
I think that its a good idea for girls to play football. i dont now if its a good idea for them to play on a guys team cause there alot big but if thats what the want to do then more power to them. They now how big the guys are soits there choices.
i think that is a good thing that those girls are doin hope there doin good
I think it is a great idea us girls should be able to do what guys do and if that means football then yeah why not.It is a way to prove that we are not weak we can actually beat the boys. We are not as weak as guys think we are. So let girls prove that by playing guy sports.
I think its cool for all girls to play football!!! One of my reasons that boys are trying to tackle them is becaues they can beet there buts!!!
I think that girls playing on a guys football team would get a ton of controversy and that they would most likely get treated unfairly. But why not have an all girls football team. There's basketball, soccer, tennis, track, swimming and many other sports that have both guys and girls teams. So why not have a girl’s football team? We as girls should be able to try anything that we want even if that does mean playing football. But I don't think that girls should get to play on a guy’s football team, because guys are bigger and usually more muscular and stronger than girls, so it would be unfair for the girl’s because they wouldn’t have as fair as a chance as the boys if they played on a guy’s team. But why doesn’t someone come up with a girl’s football team that’s only for girls, then we would be able to play someone our own size at our own ability level.
I agree with the football kickers. If they want to play with the boys, then let them! I'm playing on a boys ice hockey team, and I play even if I get hit. It doesn't matter the gender, if they want to play, they should be allowed to. Sports shouldn't be sexist. It's unfair to say if football is a boys' sport, because even though boys typically play football more than girls, but both genders are capable of playing!
Way to go, girls!
Females should totally be football players!. it's not impossible for girls to become as strong or my be even stronger than guys. You go girls!!!
I think girls should be able to play football they are just as good as boys if not better!
I think girls should be allowed to play football if they want to. But i think if they are going to play they should be treated the same as the boys. The coaches should be just as tough on the girls and give them an equal amount of playing time. If a school is completely against girl football players on the regular team they should start a rugby or powderpuff football program.
There is no rule in Football that says girls can't play. The only reason girls don't play is because they choose not to. I think it is great that they are playing, but it would be harder for them to get as strong as guys are because guys have more testostorone which helps us to build muscle.
I think that it is a good thing that females are getting the chance to play on a primarily male football team. I think that it gives females more opportunity to play the sport that they enjoy. I also think that if the girls are good enough to play with the boys then why not? If they already know that football is a rough sport and that it’s not easy then they should do whatever they want to do.
So what if a girl wants to play football. I know a girl that plays football and she is a defensive end. The girl dominates on her side of the ball. Im a running back and really dont care if i get hit, but honestly, from stories i have heard about her; i would be scared to come up to her on the field. She hurt he last guy she hit. If your a girl, and want to play, go for it. Just remember that the guys dont think you can hurt them. Prove them wrong.
I think its fine, because sometime girls need to use their muscles. If you never try how it’s going to be good or bad, then let’s see the girls in football field. Girls and Guys are the same so if boys can do, also girl can do it too. Most people think maybe it will be hard for girl, but sometimes it’s hard it fun too.
We think it's really awesome that girls can play football. Not just guys!
O ya , Girl POWER!
The kickers do get tackled. Not all the time sure, but they do. You people are just thinking into the games. Go into the practice. Football practice is MUCH more brutal than the games are. im in highschool now, but i remebmer the 1st time i played football for a school. Our middle school coach said "if you can survive spring training, your on the team." How does that sound? i bet most of the guys here that are saying, "GIRLS ARE TOO BABY TO PLAY FOOTBALL! LEAVE IT TO THE GUYS" dont even play football themselves. come to our practices. see how long you live.
I think the two girls were very brave to play football with all those big giant rough and tough boys!!!
WOOOO you go girls
i think its perfectly fine if they are a valuable player. I once heard about a girl on a soccer team and she could kick farther than any 15 year old in the world and they kicked her of because she was a girl.
I think it's a good thing that girls have equal rights as us men, though it does sound weird that a girl would want to play with all boys. There should be an all girl football team. They have it for other sports.
I think that its cool that they like to play even if it is a boys sport but of course women can do the same things men do to
I think it is great that some females are finally getting around to playing football. Personally, I wouldn’t want to be tackled by a bunch of 200 pound guys or play football, for that matter. But trust me, I know lots of girls who can play football better than some of the guys on our school football team and who wouldn’t mind the violence that comes with the sport.
Your writing made me think that more girls should be able to play football if they want to. I agree with the one that said it would be fun to tackle! Boy or girl, I think that anyone should be able to play any type of sport.
I wonder why a lot of people think girls can't be football players. I think it's good for girls to play football then maybe they can play on an all girls team or on a boys team. Some girls like to play football and some girls don't. I like to watch football but I don't like to play it.
I wonder why a girl will want to play football.Why does a girl what to get tackled by a 200 pound linebacker.But if girl want to play football then they could play.
I think it is a good idea because it shows girls that they are as no different than guys.I mean girls can be agrassive if they want to be. Also I think it is a good way to exspress your felings. I mean some guys use sports to take away strass and anger so why can girls do the same.
I don't want to sound sexist but I don't like girls on the team. What would happen if they got hurt? Parents will be outraged.
I think it's good that women are getting interested in playing this sport, though even if they think they can take whatever the guys dish out. Some players will go easy on the girl, which wouldn't make the playing field fair.
guys that think girls can't be nothing more then a kicker are wrong a lot of girls no how the throw a ball and tackle to I mean if you give a me ball I can throw it I mean I have an arm, but people do need to be aggressive to play and don't get me wrong you make a girl mad and your in for a world of hurt lol but guys are wrong if they think girls can't throw and everything else
I think anyone should be able to play any sport they want. Although in football the players are just to big and strong for women to go agaisnt them. Why dont you think you see more female players. Maybe they should come up with a league for womens football.
I do think a girl could do football but that nathanel kid is right once it gets more competitive like high school football most girls arent tough to hang in with big 6'0 220 pound football players its a contact sport but if there is a girl out there who can hang in than more power to her... but most girls arent that big
I think girls can play as well as the boys. Whatever guys can do girs can do the same (sometimes even a little better). Either way girls can play football too 🙂
I think that if females want to play football then they should make a female team. I think this because it is a huge risk for women to play against men because men and women are built completely different. When women play against and with men they have a huge risk of getting completely hurt and not just minor injuries. These women could get seriously hurt.
I think that this proves to everyone that girls can do whatever they put they mind to! Also that there is no sport that girls and boys can't do!!!
I think that females should be able to play a guy sport if they want to because it’s the girls choice if they want to get hurt. Im not saying they will im just saying there shouldn’t be a rule on it because of the weight factor
I think that the female football palyers are a good thing. Girls can do anything that boys can do, and most of the time we are better at it, too! The thing about us not having enough upper body strength is just a stereotype because I am personally very strong in my arms and upper body. I think that all boys have a too high of an esteem level. 🙂
Girls are just as tough as guys we have to go through child birth. So if a girl wants to try out football why not? Everyone should have the chance to try something new. Besides I know a lot of girls that are a lot stronger than some guys, not all guys are tough that is such a stereotype. Girls can do whatever guys can do!
We have a girl on our high school football team that plays first string. she's a line man and pancakes some of the guys on the opposing team. i say if a girl is willing to try, then let them be.
I don’t really like the fact the women can play on football teams because I would feel bad after trucking a girl and they had gotten hurt its different when I tackle a guy because I know they can take the hit
i think the game would be less competitive if girls play football because most the guys are playing at the game to his girl friend or a girl he likes see him take out another guy
I think girls should be able to play football. Even in pro football. So girls can play if they want to. They would wear protective gear so they dont get hurt.
i dont think its a big deal theirs a girl on my team that plays and she does ok better then 3/4 of the freshmen
i think that guy that thinks girls will only kick because of upper body strength is wrong. I played football for 5 years and upper body strength has nothing to do with it. I think it's great girls are playing football.
i think it is a good idea girls have to get their anger out somehow plus girls can be tough too.
I have played football for 6 years. I wouldn't really care if girls joined my team, I wouldn't treat them any different than a guy.
We think it's cool how girls are starting other sports than the usual field hockey, soccer, track, and cross country. It just opens up other possibilities. And it's pretty cool!!!!!!!!!!
i think that it's really awesome that girls are playing football !!! People underestimate what girls can do ! the girls that are playing this sport should keep playing , no matter what other people say
I think that is cool that girls are on the football team. I think they should be able to do any sport that they want to do.
I think that girls should be able to play any sport that they are really passionate about. And same with boys! It is sooo fabulous that a girl is on the football team! GIRL POWER!!!!
I think it's great because everyone should have equal rights
I think Girls Should play Guy Sports Because...people underestimate Girls alot and it is mean!!!! like swimming girls and boy play that sport. and basket ball and golf, Soccer but not field hokey me and kota think... That guys should play girl sports like field hokey but take out the skirts.!
I think that girls should be able to play football.
I think girls should play football like boys only with different clothes. It would be interesting to see a girl play football. also I be shoced to see a girl played.
I feel like if the girls want to play football they should be allowed to. It’s their decision to go up against someone who weighs 2 times more than they do so they should have to face the consequences of their own decisions. If that’s what they feel like they should be doing then let them do it.
I could care less if the girls whant to play football and such and because I don’t care im going tho end this blog pretty early compared to the rest. Girls should be like totally able to like play some sports like ummmmmm foot ball and such like yeah!
I think that if girls want to play football then they have every right to do so. I play rugby and have been up against some pretty big girls and I don’t see the problem girls being on a football team. There are boys on cheerleading teams why can’t there be girls on football teams?
I think it is pretty cool that there are girls on football teams. I mean I think it would still be really hard for a girl to be able to compete against a guy who probably can outweigh her by quite a bit, but if that is what the girl really wants to do then she should go for it.
I saw that girls should be able to play whatever sports they want to. It’s going to be there fault if they get hurt or not be able to perform like the guys do regularly. Any one should be allowed to play something they drive to do in life, so it’s straight with me.
This made me think about when my friend Justin had a girl on his football team. T
hey were scared to tackle her cause they thought she would get hurt.
I wonder why there were female football players. Mabye it was a joke.Mabye it was not
I wonder why female would want to play football.That sound confusing
i think that its about time girls are aloud to play football most girls can probably well actually most tom boys that i know can tackle a guy that whighs way more than her and shes really good at it so girls cam play foot ball
I LOVE FOOTBALL
I think that females that are in football can set a good roll model for others to say that anyone can do anything if they really want to.
i think if wemen want to play a male sport. Then that is fine if they want to get hurt if they want to try it out then i think they should it would be good for them to try.
My opinion on this topic is that girls should have the right to play football, and in any position that they choose. Although im personally against the whole girls playing football thing. I don’t think it’s appropriate for girls to play, I just think its manly and not made for girls to play. Alongside with being a manly sport girls are more likely to get hurt then a 300 pond 7 ft boy. It’s the girls decision to play and the coaches should not discriminate against them because they are girls.
ya i think girls should be able to. theres nothing wrong with it. i agree with fiona.
I think to say that girls shouldnt be able to play football is sexist. Even if girls aren't as strong as men, we should be able to play. Treat everyone with mutual respect and equality.
I think that if girls want to play football they should create there own league. For example baseball and fast pitch. It would give women a chance to play the sport they wanted to.
OH AND GIRLS CAN DO ANYTHING BOYS CAN BUT WWWAAAYYY BETTER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think that women should be given the opportunity to tryout for the football teams and play if they are better than the men. They should not be discriminated against because of their gender. The best players should play.
i think that if girls wanna play football then they should. girls should have there own league because they wont get any playing time and boys wont want to hit them hard. girls should want to play with other girls and not guys
I think that it is up to the girls whether they want to play or not. I think they should not be discriminated against because of their gender and be excluded from the team BUT, the first time they get seriously hurt because they get tackled by a 200 plus guy, I don’t want to hear it!!! It’s their fault and if they want to be on an all guys team then they’re not going to go lightly on her just because she’s a girl. You want to play with the boys, you play LIKE a boy. So hold the tears sister!!!! It s your stupid fault if you get hurt. Have fun out there. 🙂
If girls wanna play football with the boys let them. i think it's awesome that we can go up against guys twice our size! Now if only there were more girls like that then we could kick major butt! 😀
i love the fact that there are high schools girls palying football, their making a statement, but what sucks is that there puting that much effort in playing football when they cant get a scholarship for it because pro-football is for guys, so they are pretty much playing it for a hobby, which sucks, but to thumbs up for those who do so!
men and women bodies are made diffrent therefore i dont think women should or can play football. even men have long term damages to their bodies later down the road becuase of such hard hitting that goes on. think about what would and will happen to women if they go against a 18 year old boy who has a little to much Testosterone. Not good! Our bodies like it or not are much diffrent from men and we can not do everything they can do. we were just made diffrent.

Girls should play football with the boys if they want to, no one should stop them. I think it's awesome that we are willing to go up against guys twice our size! Now if only there were more girls like that then we could kick major butt! 😀
IT'S ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We need to get girls into more sports events. It's time for male sports fans to stop being so sexist. Women can do most things jusst as well as men, if not better. Foootball isn't just about strengh, it also has alot to do with skill.
There’s nothing wrong with girls playing guys sports because the4 girls are as good as the guys.
I think that girls should be allowed to play football. One of my friends was a kicker for her middle school football team and she was better than the other kicker who was a boy. It really shouldn’t matter, if they are good then let them play. They are the ones making the decision to try out for the team in the first place, so I’m sure that they have some idea of what they are going up against.
I think that girls would get hurt too easily. I am a linebacker and I broke my hand playing it. I wouldn't want to hurt a girl.
I would so do that but i would be nevers to do all of to do and but i would love to be a football player because guy do need to know that girls can play man's sport
it is kinda cool that there are female football players that just means that they are strong enough to stand their ground
I think is cool that women are flaying football and giting invovle with mail sports
I believe that woman should start playing football more but i wouldn't because i know I'M weak and those girls have guts to go out there and play hard with all of the boys.
I think it is great to girls on the football team. playing football is suposed to be fun. It does not matter if they I are week or strong. Football is as much as a boys sport as it is a girls sport.
Good Luck Girls
It would be cool to have a female football player at my school because our team is just made of boys so we need to mix it up a bit. Another thing why that is cool is because no one in our conference has a girl on there team. So we would be the only team in our conference on our team.
I have always wanted to play football, I think its pretty fun. I used to play football with my brothers but now that I have volleyball theirs no time.
I watch all my brothers play it like its nothing. But i get scared that i'm going to get hurt.
I think that that is so cool that they Are chasing their dreams. I know I would be afraid to play football but if they want to thats cool. Possibly they could create a girls team so that other girls could play to and not be so rough.
That would be mean if a (200 ton) heavier football player decides to tackle anybody he wants and tackles the wrong person/gender then that could be a problem and that won't look pretty and neither is those girls attitude but girls can be as much stronger then a guy could or she might even weight more (in the muscles).
I think that that is so cool that they Are chasing their dreams. I know I would be afraid to play football but if they want to thats cool. Possibly they could create a girls team so that other girls could play to and not be so rough. We have a girl at our high school that plays football.:)
Well Carl, I think it`s awesome that there are female football players on a high school football team because no girls ever has courage to play due to social stats. It`s my belief that no one should be held back just because there afraid of what other people think.
I think its good that the girls are getting out there and there getting exercise and there helping the boys. Some of them boys think that the girls cant play at all. They think they are so much more better then us women. See how it is.
I think that it is cool for girls to be cool and to play football
I think that it is cool for girls to be cool and to play football and have equal rights
I think they should make NFL for girls.
It's great to have girls play football, who knows maybe one day there will be girl football teams at all schools.
I think that it's great for girls to be on a team. Why not? Girls can do anything boys can do! (if they want to) I think it's kind of funny that people aren't used to seeing girls play football!
its cool that you play on a all boys team.
I think its good that they let the girls play foot ball and stuff
YES!WORK THOSE MUSCLES LADIES!!!!!!!!! I think more girls need to learn how to suck it up be a man rub some dirt on it. Like these ones.
i though that it was cool that those two girls went and played foot ball and the that they got on the team it is cool
I think its great that girls get a lest to something in football which is mostly a guys sport but its not that great because they only play as kicker but if i become senator or something that has to do with laws then i would make it so girls can play as something else.
i think that if a girl wants to play football they should be able to i mean there is no law ageist it. i think that these girls are setting good examples for other girls. i think that it would would be really fun to play on a football team and i say way to go girls. GO TEAM!!
I think that it is cool that these two girls are playing football and are actually really good. And i think that if you watch this video that it will inspire other girls around the world to play football.
i think that it is cool that females are starting to play football
because it is a sport that you wouldn't think a female would play
I think it;s great that girl can play a mans sport.
So! I think girls should be able to play boys sports and boys can play girls sports. I also think there should only have co-ed sports not girls sports and boys sports. I say if you put your mind to it, you can do it. GO do other sports: you have never done before.
The Girls are amazing and fearless of the boys. The girls should be rewarded for that special gift that they have.
I think that it is awsome that Girls play football that shows that they are not afraide to get dirty and since they are kickers they must be just as good as the other boys!
GIRLS SHOULD NOT PLAY FOOTBALL!!!
I think girls and guys should be able to play whatever sport they want. I mean guys are aloud to dance and be cheerleaders so why can’t girls play baseball and football???
What is a problem for girls to play football my cousin played football and she is a girl and she liked it a lot. It was fun. I think girls would be good at playing football.
i think that it really dosn't matter
I think girls should and will be allowed to play football, in fact we actually two female kickers on our football team last year. They were both very good and held their own. The other football players did not treat them any differently on the field, the girls got tackled pretty hard a few times. I also agree, however, that girls playing football will never develop into a major thing. If a girl really has the heart to play, I say go for it.
ok well im happy for her but she's probably isnt goin to make it thru the season
I agree that girls should be allowed to play male sports, but it is unfair that a males are not allowed to go out for girl sports. They should even it out so that guys that want to play a girl sport should be allowed to. But, I agree with girls being able to play guys sports.
This is a huge joke. I can’t believe CNN would even waste their time to even think about reporting on such an abomination. Girls should not be allowed to so much as to touch the football field. It is a sport of teamwork and pride, two things that women could never understand because they are too busy painting their nails and gossiping about pointless drama. Also girls just aren’t made physically to even play sports, especially football. By the way I am also a kicker and that was terrible form. One had her hips facing away from the ball and the other didn’t even extend her leg. Also responding to everyone that said girls can do whatever guys can, no they can’t. Guys are physically and mentally dominate in every way possible. Girls can only attempt to imitate and that is it.
yes, girls should be able to play!
it's a free country!
even my mom would want to play!!!
it'd be cool!
i'd love to see my female teachers play some football!
it would be fun!
we play co-ed football in our gym class all the time!
chris, jay, erik, kimmy, joses, alberto, d'royce, bob and santiago
I think that if the girl that wants to play is good enough, and can deal with all the boys and roughness of the game, then she should be able to play. I don’t think they should play just so they can get “equality.”
I think that if boys think girls don’t have the upper body musscle think again boys need to think about what they say about girls. Some girls can be as good or better than some boys sorry but you all know its true
We are on the football team with all GUYS. They go a little extra hard on us but we are TUFF. Anyone should do what they set out to do, as long as they believe in their self.
I think that girls should play football because it gives them a chance to learn a new sport and know how to play each sport differently. Guys should not make fun of girls just because it is a boy sport it is for everyone. Also they should play so the boys and girls know how to play any sport that they are capable of. Plus football is a fun sport for whoever you are and if your tall or short you can still play football.
I think that girls should be able to play football and if they want to get tackled by big 200 pound football players let them. I know girl football players that could and probably will help contribute to the team and help win or just have more fun. So yes I do think that girls should be able to play with guys in football. Just like how guys should be able to play school volleyball with girls or just all combined coed. So girls play with boys,and boys play with girls in every sport if they want to.
That Females are just not fit to play football. They really don't need to be risking their lives playing football.
I think that it is cool for girls to play football because you normally see boys playing the sport and it is just kind of diffenerent to see girls play it.
I love the fact that girls can play football. Some girls have really good upper body strength and it is a great opportunity for them. I can't wait to see more female football players.
I think it is cool people are giving women a chance to play football
I think that whatever guys can do girls can do better. I believe that when a girl puts her mind to something she does it!
Girls on men football team is werd
I think that girls should be able to play whatever sport boys do! Boys play soccer and girls paly that too! oh carl we watch u alot in class and we love you
I completely disagree with Nathanael and Joel. They are sexist and crazy! I am a girl and I do not care about getting mud on my jersey or pimples on my face, and most girls don't either. I play soccer on a boy's soccer team and I don't mind it , but I would not mind playing football either. So do not think for a minute that football is a boy sport. People who do not give respect to girls should not exist. Boys can do gymnastics, so why can't girls play football? Just because men were built with more upper-body strength does not mean girls can't get out there and tackle a 200 pound quarter back. And if they get injured, so what? Girls are tough, and you better believe it.
I think football players can be girls or boys. Your sex does not matter. I hate how everyone thinks that girls cant do what guys do. If a girl wants to be a football player then i believe they can do it.
I think that it is a good idea... it really isn't just a guys game... girls can play just as well!!! i am not saying i would but some girls are good at that lol
i object to the people that say girls can only kick good and are afraed to tackle. thats bs. i know plenty of girls that could take down the guys on my foot ball team. and trust me its not a pritty sight.
I think it is good because boys can play girl sports so girls should be able to play FOOTBALL!
I think that girls should be able to play football some people say it's a guys sport but I know at are school when we play football a lot of us girls are better than the boys also we are great blockers.
girls should be able to play football even know vollyball s cooler!!
I think we shold have girl football teams! Because most boys are no better than us girls
If I'm not mistaken in Maine there is a law saying that guys are allowed to play field hockey, or softball but girls are allowed to play football and baseball. I have two girls on my football team
I think this is a good idea because any female who does want to try out for football and can prove that they can play than they should definitely be able to participate. It is a sport that takes a lot of pounding, though, so anyone (any female) that can withstand that than more power to ya.
I think everyone should have the power of choice. If a girl wants to play I support that completely but she shouldn't expect the guys to go easy on her. =]
First off, Carl, I think you ROCK!!!!! Everyday in Geography I can't wait to watch CNN Student News!!!!! About girl football players: I think that it's only fair if girls get to do what they want. I think those two girls are pretty brave to be on the team. YOU GO, GIRLS!
i think girls playing football is awsomeee(:!
i love football. haha i tackle my brother all
the time and he's a good player. we should
be able to get a chance to play a boys sport
I think that girls should have just as many opportunities in football and other usually male sports as guys, just like some usually female sports should be available to guys.
First of all i think it is great that more and more girls are doing football. I would love to play football tackle and be tackled. And whoever said that girls wernt as strong as guys well...maybe we werent built to be but we sure can be!! Guys still think of girls as weak little cry babies and that is not true considering the things girls do in other sports. So i think there is nothing wrong with girls playing football!
I think it really cool to have females on boys sports ecspecially football . But i think some girls are just like boys some girls do have the upperbody strength to tackle and kick the ball.
I think that it's cool that girls play football with other guys and that the guy's don't mind playing with them.
I think it is great if a tough girl wants to play football. Girls can be as tough as the guys!
I think that fine if girls play football. Girls can be tough too!
I live in Maine and I think its cool for girls to get into boy sports and be better.
I think its cool that girls would do that
I think the idea of a female football player is cool my sister plays ice hockey and shes the best on the team.
P.S Carl Azuz's jokes are funny
I live in Maine and i think its really cool that the girls play on the football team. And yeah i think is so cool i wish i played football with girls on the team. It would be a real bonding experience. =)
i think that girls have there own sports and football is not one of them football is a boys sport and thats how it should stay! sorry girls find your own sport
I think that having two girls on the football team is really cool
and is a good choice to make! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Its really cool but sad there the only school to have two girls get to feild goals 🙂
I live in Maine. And normally, around here, the girls don't want to play "boy" sports. Especially football. They're too chicken to get their hands dirty. But I think its awesome that those girls like to take away their heels at the end of the day and put on the cleats filled with mud and head off to practice. I want to see them go on to the nationals!
I think that if a girl wants to be on a football team then they should be able to! And if the boys don't want them on there then it should be up to the coach if the coach doesn't allow the girls then we'll make a football team for girls only. Awesome jokes Carl Azuz
A teacher in my school is totally against sexism she would think this would be great. She is totally for womans rights. I think it is PRETTY kool there is a bunch of girls on my hockey team.
I think this is a cool idea. It would be sweet if I could play football. I feel so proud if I was either one of those girls. On the other hand though I think it would be weird to get tackled by a boy.
I think having girl football players is a cool thing to do. It also gives girls a chance to play different types of sports. I have wanted to play football before, but now I would be scared to. I also play with my brothers a lot, and it is pretty fun.
I think that it is cool that girls could be a kicker on a football team if they wanted to. I also think that it gets them up and wanting to play boys sports.
Thats so cool! I've played football with family, but never on a team!
that is prity cool that grils can play futball at my school boys & girls play futtball for fun.
I think that girls should play football cuase they can play whatever they want.
I think that girls playing football is cool because I play football with grown ups and it is fun
I was going to play football........but I wanted to play field hockey. and i probably wouldn't make the teem cuz i'm really short.......plus all the guys would hurt me............YAY!
I think it is a great thing to have to girls on a football team because that shows that girls can do anything that boys can do.
I think a girl playing football shows that girls can do just about anything a guy can do. I have played flag football before and it was pretty awesome but I think that she is very brave for playing tackle football.
i think these two girls set a great a great example for all women in America: to chase your dreams even if people say its a boys thing.
i think its a great idea! being a girl and all, i think it gives girls a chance do to what they want to do and if they want to play football, then let them play! i play football and basketball with my friends, too. its actually really fun!
I think it is so cool my team has a girl and she is our QB she is our best player
I think it's cool that girls are showing their talent but I think they should stay coed ,girls and guys just don't play the same!
Who cares if girls are girls dosent mean we are not tough! Girls can do anything guys can do even in high heels!
As a football player I will say having a girl on your team can be a problem after having one on our team most of the players tend to be worried about her rather than the game. Also its great that girls are getting into the sport but the way the game was formed is around the mans body a good weight for a football player in their league is 200+ lbs how many 200 pound girls do you know that are in an athletic state of mind. Also football will attract the male audience more than the girls.
i think that girls should be ale to play the sport because there are no sports that girls or boys cant do just as well!!!!!
as a girl i think that since boys are alllowed to do cheerleading, that girls should be able to play football. And most girls can play better.
It's the 21st century. Whoever still believes girls should be painting nails instead of playing sports, should wake up to reality. Gender bias in sports is pathetic. A girl has just as much right to be a football player, as a boy does being a cheerleader.
Hey! Well I personally think having a female on a football team shows that the team is not worried about what other people think. As a female writing this I think it is great. A year or go my school had a female on the football team. She showed the guys that although football is normally a male sport females can still participate. I love how Joey said it that "Gender bias in sports is pathetic". I believe gender should have no role what so ever in every day life. That a female and a male should be treated equally no matter what they do in life.
i think that girls should be allowed o play sports i dont have a problem with it at all, as a matter of fact theres a girl on my football team and she might not be as good as us when it comes to overall but she puts up a heck of a fight every day and has just as much ability and right that i do to be out there
i don't think girls should play football its a male sport and females should not be able to walk on the field they should stick to cheerleading
I believe that female's should be able to play football, but as long as they can meet the physical requirements. I believe it is not the gender of the person that should be judged but the abilities of that person.
I'm sorry but girls are just not physical enough to go up against the best. When you go 100% guys are more dominate and better then women.
I think that this is fine that girl's can play football just as long as they don't complain about getting hurt or down and dirty. Since we have a female football player at our school I feel that she now has a chance to play a sport she likes even if it is with all guys. This would be considered sexist if we banned girl's from playing boy's football.
I think that women should have all the same rights that men do, so if a female wants to play football there should be nothing standing in her way, besides the hurdles that every other football player must face. Men are not let on football teams if they do not have the agility and skill that the sport requires of them. Therefore, women who also don't have these traits should not be let on the team. However if a woman is fully adequate to play on the football team, there should be no reason why she can't.
I think that if a girl is on a boys team then she chose that and if she wants to play football that bad she will get over it . The boys should not be easy on a girl just be cause she is a girl.
i dont tink dat girls shud play F.B. its a guys sport! no guys would want 2 takle a girl..... unless there messed up....... i mean i guess sice no guys would take her she sud b qb..... its just wierd..... not right..... i like corn, potatoes, cinimon buns, rice and kiwi
THAT IS SO COOL.I cant believe that the girls are better at playing football than those guys.they didnt even look like they play football.I guess it is true never judge a book by its cover..
I think girl can play football But it is kind of nerves because you don't want to hurt her.
I think its cool girls are playing sports now. Every sport should alow woman to play.
I think its ok for a woman to play football but it might be kinda hard. Woman can do what men can do while wearing high heels.:)
what I think about female football players is that its a great
opportunity for girls to show their strenth in sports.Even though
some girls may seem all girly it doesn't mean we aren't good at
sports or any other things.
i think that they are good and brave playing football with the boys
HA HA HA HA HA! Cant all boys see that girls are strong enough to play football! My opinion is that us girls, WE RULE!!!! We absoulutly have the strength to do everything boys can do!, and we can do it all in high heels!! Us girls, yeah we look sweet and cute, but when there is somthing we are determined too do, We dominate!!
I think that girls should play foot ball because they have as many rights as boys do at playing foot ball and if people dont except it then too bad
i think thats good that girls are on the football team not many girls are into sport.Sports are supposabley only for GUYS ONlY....thats what alot of peoples say but thats not true its for both male and female. Its really awesome to finally have girls on the football team :]]
I am so happy that in that school they let girls play in a football team with boys.It shows that GIRLS CAN DO PLAY THE SAME SPORT AS GUYS!!!GO GIRLS!!!!!
I think thry should devote a footbal league just for woman
I think they should devote a footbal league just for woman. Woman should be aloud to play football if they want. Maybe not with men but with other woman. Maybe one day they will be aloud to play with men.
I think it is ok for girls to play football. I play football and we play a team with a female runningback. She is mean and can run you over.
well i like females and i like football putting them together makes it even more fun
They should have a womens football team. I mean they have womens teams in almost every other sport. And women are just as good as men.
I think its fine if girls want to play football in high school, but when girls start playing on college and maybe professional teams, it can be a problem because the way women build muscle would never be able to add up to what it takes to go against a 260+ pound lineman. Its just not safe.
I think that the gender of the person who is trying out for any sport shouldn't be taken into consideration. They should ignore that and equally test each person based on their skills purely. Of course, most girls will not qualify just because of how our genetics work but it would still be fair. No one wants to get hurt.
I think its good for a girl to do guy sports, its something different when girls are playing with boys in sports because they could get hurt really bad.
i believe that female football players is not a good idea, because they have such a low tolerence for pain. so they wouldn't be able to stand up against a full sized linebacker.
I think it is great to play football no matter what your gender is.
I love the idea that girls can play football i play football and i am good at it 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
My opinion on this topic is that we should be able to play football.
Some people may say that we should not be able to but that is when we say bring it on! We don't want you to think Im not hitting a girl but we want you to hit us charge at us we are asking for it
WOW!!!! I think that you shoud do whatever you want to do. I now how you feel because I take karate, and people always looks at me different .
That is cool that girls want to play football
That is cool that girls want to play football.
I think that girl football players are a good thing because they can show girls that are not thinking that girl football players are not good can really change the girls that can change the cities score.
i honesly think that girls shouldent be able to play football. you dont see us guys playin girls sports.and football is a mens sport
let the girls play football!! who cares honestly..if they have the guts to go play with guys then they know the risk they are taking so everyone needs to stop being so stuck up and just let them have fun! =P
i love football i would love 2 be on a team but i cant tryout cause im a girl i dont get that they should have a football league just for us girls
count me in carl!!!!!!
I think it's a totally awesome idea! I play girls lacrosse and much rather play guys lacrosse if they'd let me. I think these girls are a great inspiration and will inspire many other girls to play guys sports too.
I think that girls are just as apable to play football as guys. My reason is because we have every other sport that is for both genders. Such as hockey, ballet, dance, lacross, soccer, tennis, karate,etc. i think that this is a good thing it is showing that girls can handle playing with the guys. There should be a girls football league.
i love football an i had a girl on my team but i think she moved and she was just like one of the guys and i didnt really bother me i mean she played a pretty hard position. SO BRYCE I DO NOT AGREE WITH YOU.
if a girl wants to play football then let her but if a guy doesnt want them to then get over i mean i know theres a saying about football that states "thats why girls dont play the gmae" well that should change because girls can be as tough and strong as guys are sometimes even stronger but any guy who thinks differently needs to think again and actually meet a girl stronger then them
Well, I think that we should play because some girls have the want to do this. They want to play as much as these boys want to. Everyday they're probably thinking when they can or how they can do it themselves. Still we're arguing about something that was supposed to be done with long ago. Both Men AND Women should've been equally treated right now. That means we could've never changed someone's mind there's many people out there who are still sexist. I wish that all you would stop this usless fighting and make peace for once in a long time.
I think it does not matter what size you are or if you are a girl or boy you both can do the same exact thing if you are strong.
It's not so much that girls want to play football...it's to show that we can be as tough and buff as we like and that we are ALL equal...
I think it is great that girls join football. Guy think that girls can't do it but they are very wrong. And guys who oppose it just don't want to get beat by girls.
I think it would be really cool if there was a girl and guy football team. I think if we had a girls and guys football team, it would show some people that girls can do whatever guys can do.
i don't think that it's a bad idea that a girl plays on a football team with boys. The boys on the other hand do. If I could choose i would think that girls should make there own football team and if there's not enough girls to fill the whole team the just forget it and for the girls who did want to be on the football team let them be with the guys!!!
I think it's a good idea for them to be playing. It shows that not only guys can play football.
I think that girls playing football is a good idea because they should have the chance to do what ever sport they want to do. I wouldn't really mind if a girl was on my football team I would just treat her like one of the guys.
I believe that girls shouldn't be able to play football. I don't think that it is right because the gils on the team could seriously get hurt and I don't think that it is fair that they get to play football but guys can't play volleyball, not like I would but I know guys that would like to.
I think that girl football players are a good thing because they are showing that girls can play football.
I think it's fine that Girls are on the football team as long as they play serious and help the team improve in some way.
i think there should be female foot ball players. I've all ways wanted to try out for football but my mother is afraid i'll get hurt. If a guy wanted to join the volleyball team then thats their choice but if we want to join football there should be nothing against it. Girls have their dreams and boys have some too. We need to achieve independently what we goal for.
I think that girls should get the same kind of opportunity that guys do, especially when it comes to sports. Yes, girls work different, are built different, and normally act different, but they can still have fun with the guys while expressing themselves. They are often overlooked in major American sports, but I know that I have a friend who's mom could probably take most of the guys on that football team, so I would encourage all girls to take a leap! It wouldn't be every girl's thing, but for those who want to give it a shot, I say more power to you! As long as they are having fun and getting good exercise, then it sounds like a good plan to me....
I think that fine that girls play football...... But what about us guys??? Can we play girl sports like softball or volley ball with them??? But I wonder would the national football league or a European team let them go pro??? Those are things we might never KNOW!!!
I think that it is kind of cool seeing a girl on a football team. It just shows that girls can still do the same sports as guys can without complication. Plus it shows the guys that girls can do a lot of the things that guys can. I mean sports should not be seperated in to gender. That is what a lot of schools are based on. This sport is for girls and they are the only ones who can play or the other way around. That is like being sexist.
Ok, honestly i think that sure when your younger and wanna play football with the guys that's ok you know enjoy yourself. But once you get older you start playing with the older boys and if your better than a guy they will get intimidated and most likely ya know like plow u over and try to hurt you just to make a point. So i mean girls can play if they wanna but i sure wouldn't.
I think that because guys and girls are equal it's totally normal. If you want to get tackled it's your choice. I mean if it's fun! I like volleyball and a little soccer, but if there are girls out there that want to play a normally guy's sport, that's totally your choice.
It doesn't really matter. It doesn't matter if you are really strong, it matters that you are determined(though not always.) Yeah, I have pros and cons on girls being on football teams but hey lets just let them. Maybe they might be better then some guy football players, I don't know. I guess we just have to wait and see.
I told my mom that I would love to be a female football player. Since I love football anyway I think it would be cool. We already had a girl on the football team here in Union City,Michigan. My parents would most defiantly cheer me on if I did. My mom would go to every game and I would be considered the tomboy in the family because my little sis hates football because she might get hurt.
Female football players? My feelings are if the girls are good enough to play, than why not? My only concern would be than what's good for "gander" should be good for the "goose." Do we want the guys to play on a female team?
I really don't think that girls playing football should be judged. There aren't any reasons why girls shouldn't play football.
I think girls should be able to play football. Football is a fun and active sport that everyone should be able to play. I use to play football when i was in elementary school and yeah it hurt like crap getting tackled but its funner that doing boring flag football.
I think it is a fabulous idea to let females play Football. Then us females show that we can play a guy sport. I think it should be half of the team as females.
My thoughts on girls and guys playing football together would be that I think if the girls want to play football they should be able to. Guys can play most the sports girls can so why can't girls play football if they want to. Boys and Girls should be equal in many aspects, and it should also be equal with sports. Just because football is a rough sport doesn't mean girls can't handle it. It would be alright if the girls wanted to play on the football team.
I don't think that there's anything wrong with girls being on a football team. Guys aren't any better than girls so they shouldn't be treated any differently. Not allowing them to play is being sexiest. If a guy wanted to play volleyball and there was no guy sport going on at that time then they would have to let them play. Last year at our school we didn't have a guy sport during volleyball so then any guy would have been able to play. But now there's football so they can play football or nothing and its same with us and we play volleyball or nothing. Girls should be able to play football.
As a active sports player, I think that it is inspiring to see athletes of the feminine gender playing on a usually male sports team. We need more co-ed teams that work together and take each other as more than just a girl or just a boy but as a team member. I, personally would consider joining a football team but I am not sure if we still have a Powderpuff girls' football team or not but I would definitely join if we did. Discrimination is just wrong. To be 100% truthful, I would be inspired to have a male of mine join volleyball or cheerleading. Do whatever makes you happy as long as it doesn't interfere with the rights of others.
I think that girls playing football is Great. I am girl so of course i think it os a good idea for girls to play football. If they want to get tackled and stuff then that should be their choice. I think if guys don't want girls on there team it is because they are afraid of getting beat by a girl or maybe its because they think there better than girls.
I think that any boy who doesn't believe girls can play football needs to realize that this is the 21st century. People figured out years ago that women and men should have equal rights. That should apply to football as well. Many girls love sports, too. If someone loves to do something, they should be allowed to without others telling them they can't.
Girls on a guys football team would be cool. If I were able to play football then I would. Also it is a cool idea because if they want to play then most people should let them and let them have fun. Also some girls would like to do it because they would like to show some of the guys that a girl can do what a guy can do. That is probably why some of the guys do cheerleading. I mean a guy can do a girl sport to I thought. Also most girls like to show off. They like show how strong that they can be.The only reason I can't play is because I am skinny and my weight. But it would be cool if I could.
Okay, honestly to tell you the truth I could understand a girl playing football at like a younger age, and then playing it for like three years then I could understand them playing football because they have had the experience and they enjoy playing football. But I don't think that girls should just all of a sudden play football in like high school, because I think they would get hurt really easy because they aren't used to that. If a girl wants to play football go for it.
I think it's awesome. They're giving girls the same opportunity that they give guys. Weather or not they know it, some girls are stronger than guys, and can whoop them in football!!!!!
I think that female football players are nice,. Because it is nice to show that the football players don't necessarily have to be guys. It show that girls don't have to be on the side line cheering for her boyfriend she can be on the field while her boyfriend is on the side line cheering for her. It also shows that girls are not afraid to break nails and actually not have to worry about her mom worrying about her getting hurt out in the real world.
I think it's really cool thats there are girls on the guys football team because it just shows that girls can play football just as good as boys... and that football isn't always just for guys.
I think girls playing football is awesome. It shows that girls can do just as many things as guys can and maybe even better. Many people are very sexist about it, but they don't even know. if ladies got proper training and a chance to play with the guys they could show them what their capable of doing. At first soccer was a boys sport, but now there is girls, boys, and co-ed. I love playing against boys because most of them i know i can beat, and it feels really good to beat them. Plus it gives me a little challenge if their really good.
I think that girls playing football is really cool.. It gives girls a chance to show guys that they can do whatever they set their mind to. Guys normally nag a girls saying that they can't do this and so on. But if more girls played on football teams guys would be able to see that their not any better. See i would really like to play on a baseball team, because I like pitching over hand, not under, I've actually have a pretty hard level arm on me when it comes to pitching. But m afraid that the guys would be jerks to me. I think that making separate girl boy sports teams if kinda dumb because they just make the girls teams not as hard because people think the girls will cry. But who care's girls will get over it. They're tough. I would rather play on a harder team and fail then play on an easy team then succeed.
i think that women should just start there own football team so then it would be more fair.
I don't think it should be a problem if girls want to play football with the boys. The boys and girls should be considered equal. I think some of the boys don't like it only because they wouldn't want to get beat up by a girl. If this is what they really want to do, nobody should stop them! These girls show that if you set your mind to it, you can do anything you want.
Girls Listen if you want to play football and get tackled then do it. just because people say that football is a guys sport dosnt mean that you cant play. most guys think that girls are whimps and cant do some thing that they can do and that bogus...girls can do anything that the guys can do and more power to you if you play...show those guys what us women can do.
I persnonally believe that if there is a sport guys can play, then girls should be allowed to play too. That sounds bad, but I also think the opposite is true. If a girl is going to play football though, I don't think she should get any specila treatment because she is a girl. If she has the guts to go out for the sport then she has the guts to have the same treatment as the guys. If she gets hurt, then she knew it was coming and can't comlain, she just has to suck it up and hack it just like the rest of the guys.
I think that a girl playing football is alright. They have the right to do what they want. If some guys would like to play volleyball I think it's like the same idea. I think that it would be okay for that too. Some girls are okay playing football but I think others shouldn't because they can be very fragile. Some like the idea of playing football but other girls might think that its stupid and they would get hurt to easily or even thinking that playing that sport is too hard.
Well, I think that if a girl wants to play football then its fine. Guys always think girls can't do what guys well I guess those girls showed them. In some ways I can see the boys getting mad because the guys don't get to play girl sports. I am a girl and I really don't think I would be able to play football, so those girls who do play, good job and keep up the good work.
I think it’s awesome that the girls want to play on the football team. The girls can play just as well as the boys. I think the boys that get mad and dislike the girls playing are just scared the girls might take their position and be better than them. It shouldn’t matter what sex you are. Anyone can do anything as long as they set their mind to it.
I think that having girls on a highschool football team is a fantastic thing! Why can't girls be just as good as boys? I believe they can and i think we will be seeing alot more of this in the future. Girls playing football is just like guys playing volleyball or going out for cheerleading. We need to let people play whatever sport they truely want to play and not base it on their gender. You go girls!!!
Awesome! I didn't think girls are even tough enough to even kick like guys do. I guess I was proved wrong.
i think if they are good enough to play they should.
I think that this is strange but this could be a good thing !
P.S. I don`t think that guys should have such a fit about this.
I think it is a bad idea for girls to play football. The chances of them being better than a guy are extremely slim. Guys have always been and will always be bigger, faster , and stronger. Getting a girl to play football just doesn't make sense. If a girl wants to play the parents should do her a favor and buy a doll.
I think that if females really want to do football, then they should. I think they would get killed because of their size, but if they really want that, then okay. Go ahead.
I think that it's the girls choice! If she wants to play rough then she should be able to do so. I personally wouldn't want to, but i know some girls who would. Guys shouldn't make such a big deal out of this. Girls can/could be just as good as a guy is, you just have to give us a chance! For a girl not to be allowed to play just because she's a girl is not fair at all and just not morally right.
hey, i am a girl and yes i would like to play football if it was'nt the same time as volleyball so let a girl do what a girl wants to do and don't get in the way of some kids dreams.
an 8th grader
I think its a great idea to have female football players as the kicker for the team.... because you don't get takled or anything all you do is kick the football...and there might be girls out there that are really good at kicking the football into the field goal or something so the should be able to show off and be on the guys football team...but if it was for a running back or a lineback or something like that, that would be different....because then they could get takled and get serioulys hurt maybe. So i think its really good to have a girl on a guys football team to be their kicker!! Thats great!!
I think that girls should be aloud to be on the football team. I if girls want to take the risk, then they should be able to join the team. I think that it is dangerous, but it is the girls risk. If the team in our town let girls join it, I bet alot of girls would join.
if the girl wants to play then i whould let her play
if she gets hurt that is her fault for wanting to play
I think that girls should be able to be on a football team. I think that if a girl wants to play football then i think that she should go for it. Girls can do about everything that a guy can do. I think that there should be a girl and a boy sport of almost everything. You never know, maybe girls are better at football then you think they are.
I think that girls should be able to play football. I know if there was a team at my school i would totally be in it. I love football more then anything, i love to play with my dad at my brothers. I think that it descrimintates us girls from the boys because i know that we can do anything that we put our minds to it. Girls are very smart,and so are boys, the only thing that seperates us is our gender.
If a girl wants to play football that's great! I would totally suport her 100%, but she could also get hurt a lot easier too. So It would be completely up to the type of girl you are dealing with.
Girls have just as much of a chance to make the team as boys do. Personally, I LOVE football. So I say, GO 4 IT!!!
yeah! girls are just as good as boys, if not better 🙂
I think it's sexist NOT to allow girls to play football. There are boys' softball teams, so why not girls' football? If the girls want to tackle, let them try! Nobody's making them do it if they don't want to.
Finally, girls will get to be known to be as good at sports as boys!!!!!!! This is awesome!!!!!! I hope my school offers this, though I don't know how to play football! I hope some of my friends will be able to show their skills when it comes to football. I would really love this. Yes! If my school offers this, and I knew how to play, I WOULD try out. Go Girls, Girl Power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is a female football player in one of our middle schools this year. She is the first one that I have ever seen tryout. By rule, if you want to play football, you are automatically put on a team. She was put on a team but never plays. She is on C-team(worst) and on the last string. Knowing how football coaches think, they looked at her and said "she is a girl and girls don't play football. She fragile unlike us men. Football is a MANS sport." That is rediculous. If a girl wants to play football, let her! Let her try it and if she doesn't like it, let her get out.
I think that girls should be allowed to play on guy football teams because they have just as much right to play as guys do. Will they be tackled sometimes, yes. Will they get hurt at times, yes. But if they want to play just let them. It would be the same amount of pain as the guys endure and with all the equipment and padding they use chances of severe damage are slim. Plus playing with both guys and girls makes the game a lot more fun most of the time.
Where i used to play football there was a girl on my team. Every body thinks that girls are bad at football because they don't have the strength that guys do. Yes they don't have the body strength ,but if they believed they could and had heart i would say yes they can play. The girl on my team was one of the best players.
I think girls should be allowed to play football. If they aren't concerned about breaking their nails. Ha, Ha, Ha. But seriously, if girls have their own tastes, let them play.
i think its awesome that girls are actually getting out there and playing a "guy" sport! i love to play football its awesome! At my school we have a girl on the 8th grade football team and a girl on the 9th grade team.
i think it's a good idea. but i think that the girls should get treated just like the guys no exeptions. but all and all it would be awesome to see a 140 pound girl take down a 200 plus pound guy. its all in the technic.
Hey if a girl wants to play football, by all means let them. I know for a fact that some girls who are friends of mine could truck some of these guys who play football. I mean they couln't truck me but anyway. So more power to them.
Mmmkay. I think Girls playing football is amazingg!
girls can play whatever sport they want to!
and Football is one that they wana play.. so be it!
Female football players would be great football players because that is giving the woman a right and which we still have.
I don't like what some of the boys up hear are saying and just to inform you I could school you in football like you were some girls then you would be feeling retarded and embarrased at the fact that you were beat at football by a girl and that you judged any girl in the first place.
there is nothing wrong with those girls playing football. I have friends that are in high school, they are girls and play on their school football team.
I don't recomend female football players. Football is a rough, high tensioned game that was invented for guys to play. Girls happen to be smaller and not as muscular. Men are here to protect the women and if they're out tackleing them your violating that term. I may be a girly girl my self and play once in a while but i would never let a girl be on a football team!!
yea well thats hot. girls should be aloud to go out there and tryout for the football team. so you girls out there go try out its not about the boys its the team!
girls should play
I think it's great for women to be playing football. It is an excellent way to exersise women's rights. Me and my friend Desiree play football on a boy's team and we're treated like any guy would be. Plus we're two of the best player's in the county.
I think that if a girl is tough enough and strong enough to be a football player she should be. It sounds korny but if thats where her heart leads and shes ready for it she should do it.
I think that it would be fun to play football. I played football once and scored a touch down in high heels. Girls rock!
i think its a wonderful idea that girls play football...sure people may think its just a guys sport and girls arent tough but girls are mentally stronger and i think that thats what really counts. ps were girls...girls like football...girls like guys...so why not make them happy? 😀
i think that is dimb because what if we hurt the girl then we can go to jail and i just dont feel like hitting a girl as hard as i can that just seems weird
You people have NO IDEA how violent the game of football can be. NO...girls can't do the same things boys can. Bigger, faster, stronger and more aggressive. If you've never played, it's impossible to know how brutal the game really is. Players are taught at an early age to PUNISH the ball carrier and hit evrything that moves. Go in the yard and run FULL SPEED into a tree, get up, and ask yourself if you can withstand that kind of punishment everyday in practice. Then GO FOR IT.
I agree with Carl. Every vote counts.Troops should vote,their still americans.And Americans have the right to vote!
Girl should play football but not as much.
My sister played tackle football for two years and has always done the Guy Sports like Karate, Basketball, and BMX. And she is not that bad, now if i were to do any of that i would suck. So i think that it just depends on the girl.
I think that girls should be able to play. It shows that gender dicrimiantion is wrong
My Friends and I play football with are guy friends but we don't play tackle we play 2-hand tuch. But guys should never play tackle football with girls.
I think it would be okay if the females that played on the teams got treated the exact same treatment as the males. I believe that they can do what guys can do, but get treated like they cant. Its irritating. Same as in the army. We're all fighting against the same enemy, yet, we have different measures for fitness. Its rediculous to me.
Women should be able to play football with the guys. I mean theres a lot of women who would take playing football with the guys over being a cheerleader anyday including me. And yeah we may not size up with the guys physically but we're just as good, sometimes even better.
