Lingerie Football League

There is something disturbing about the Lingerie Football League.  Athletes and elite sports women and men often look beautiful.  They have muscles and lean bodies. So why would athletic young women need to parade around whilst playing a sport in their undies.  It demeans their athleticism and puts it on a par with pole dancing which can also be an activity that requires physical ability.
Mixing sport with clothing we associate with porn or strip shows does the young athletes no favours or women generally. If this is the only way women can compete in professional sport, we need to all have a long hard look at women's sport how it is structured and paid.
