I think so! Many want to try out for teams and I think they'll get a shot at it in the future!

The gif above is real and if they can survive those types of hit, then sure go ahead and join.

Im torn. But...not that torn.
Women are simply built differently.
Im sure those that would like to play are aware of the physicality of the sport. Men are often damaged for life, too. But still...built differently.
Ive never seen the lfa. But...if enough excellent players could be drafted to play in a professional league, garner support and a fan base, more power to them. The women in the ufc seem to do well.
Overseas, womens pro basketball does well.

I agree, but both pro football and hockey are so physical, it would be hard for say a 140lb female to withstand the number of hits.

I played semi pro as a corner back doing the hitting and tackling and I was sore most of the season. I was only 5'10" 185Lbs. I can't imagine a female receiver at 140lbs being able to survive many hits.

Oh sure if ya want half the team not to play because they are still upset of the last game, lawsuits out the ****, and your favorite team wearing all sparkles and glitter and have the latest accessories then why not (crs)

As a girl...I think it is not the best move for the future of the NFL but great question.

While the idea sounds good on the top, I wouldn't like the legal precedence it would set. We live in an upside down world these days. Everybody wants to sue somebody. What happens when a few men decide to sue to be on women's professional teams, compete for women's scholarships, etc etc. We are already seeing this with some in the transgender groups.

I don't think there's a rule against it but I also don't think a woman exists who has the ability to play there at a high level. Even the biggest-baddest woman on the planet wouldn't make it past a couple of hits from these beasts in training camp. They just couldn't complete in the NFL at all. If a woman can work her way in, with no preferential treatment, and legitimately earn a spot though? Why not? It's ain't happening though.

If Ndamukong Suh stomped the living Hell out of a woman on the field the way that he does a man, do you think he'd get into more trouble? There would be a double standard for sure and I don't want it. If they could actually avoid making one decision at all considering gender it would be a miracle.

Women shouldn't play professional football against men....any more than men should try to have babies..

Can't say I wouldn't mind seeing the first person to try and do either one of those..

I would wholly support an all female pro team, or any team for that matter but I don't think that women should be allowed to play in any pro sport dominated by males because, genetically men are stronger, taller, and sturdier then women. I know your next argument, women could work out and be stronger than the males, but at the pro level all athletes work out, and genetically men can get stronger than women. Especially in contact sports like football and hockey, most women would get badly injured because of size and strength differences. Again I am all for an all female pro league
