"No Lingerie Football League team for you," mayor tells Oklahoma City
 
OKC Mayor Mick Cornett says no to Lingerie Football League


The Lingerie Football League was looking toward expanding to Oklahoma City.

The key word: Was.

Mayor Mick Cornett told media Thursday that he will not allow a team to play in Oklahoma City. The Lingerie League is made up of 10 teams that feature women playing tackle football in bras, panties and garters.

The LFL said it hoped to have an Oklahoma City franchise ready for the 2011 season, which would begin in August. However, the league did not have an ownership group in place for an OKC franchise.

Cornett told OKBlitz.com Thursday that he would not let an LFL team to play at the Cox Center or Oklahoma City Arena. Both are city-owned venues. The Lingerie League would need city council approval on several fronts before it could play in the downtown arenas.

“There are too many problems to list,” Cornett told the website. “There are so many that I don't want to gravitate to just one.”

Lingerie Football League chairman Mitchell S. Mortaza said Cornett was taking away the freedom of individuals to choose what sporting events to attend.

“Oklahomans should be provided the opportunity to choose for themselves and not dictated to,” Mortaza said in a statement. “I thought our plans were for expansion into Oklahoma City, not North Korea.”


The Lingerie League has teams in major markets such as the Chicago Bliss, Dallas Desire, Los Angeles Temptation, Seattle Mist and San Diego Seduction. MTV broadcasts some games.

I bet Kim Jong-Il would be just fine with a lingerie league team.

I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't with that article. It's so short that I can either bold all of it or none of it. If I bold none of it, then out comes the chorus of "NEEDS MOAR BOLD!!!" So yeah. Fuck the lot of you.

Perhaps they don't want to deal with all the crap after the league fold halfway through the season.

Don't know if you're being funny but I've watched it a few times here in LA and I was shocked by how serious the girls were on the field. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

LF is, at best, a bad joke. I tuned in expecting to see scantily-clad babes playing "touch" football (with special emphasis on the touch part ;) ), but what I got was a bunch of women in full football regalia beating the living shit out of each other on the field.

Firstly, the pads/gear cover so much, you'll have much more fun ogling octogenarians at the local senior center's pool, if skin is what you're seeking, as not much (definitely not enough) is revealed in an LF game.

Secondly, these chicks are really playing football, and I mean some hard fucking football. I hate football, though, so the only real draw for me would be the babes. And, as I said above, there's not enough babe-age.

And I hates me some football, I does. An idiotic game for bulked-up lunkheads and their followers/sheep.

I'll bet bulldykes just cream their jeans over LF, though, especially if they're into the "rough stuff".

It looks a hell of a lot better than the WNBA. More power to them (the league, not the d-bags in OKC).

Never watched an event before, but I'm not sure how this could ever get televised on MTV. Since the action is real wouldn't there be way too many "wardrobe malfunctions" going on? The clip showed a lot of girls doing adjustments, but you figure that those tiny straps would break off all the time.

It airs locally here in LA on KDOC ch56 which is based in Orange County. KDOC isn't even a cable channel.

Seriously. It should have been saved for the director's cut.
