Huge impact in 'Lingerie Bowl' Gridiron game

It's not rugby, but this clip from women's gridiron features an impressive run that the likes of Ma'a Nonu would be proud of. The behaviour afterwards is questionable, but in terms of a spectacle, the Legends Football League seems to deliver.

It's hard to imagine that a scantily-clad-female rugby form of this would ever be acceptable, seeing as it's 2014 and all, but the Legends Football League is a hit in the USA. It used to be called the Lingerie Football League, for obvious reasons, before the name change.

In fact there is something similar that takes place in Europe each year, so we'll do our best to report on that soon (someone's got to do it).

From the same country that brought us Hooters, the LFL is 7 on 7 women's American Gridiron, where the players wear as little as possible. Until recently, they only wore garters, bras and panties.

It's been touted as the fastest growing sports league in the USA, and has record TV ratings.

In this clip Markie 'Lil Train' Henderson of the Las Vegas Sin (really) bulldozes Chicago Bliss' Dominique Collins, scores the touchdown then lets everyone know about it.

The coaches take it quite seriously too apparently, as can be seen in this clip.

Rather than a sexist insult, "My sister can hit harder than you" is now a statement of fact.

From a safety aspect, they really should wear full armour. Kind of surprised there's a market for this.

It's America - there's a market for anything absurd.

I still think it'd be funnier to make every professional prop wear the same outfit and play 7s.

Now this is my kind of sport!! Not quite "Ultimate Surrender" but you'd feel less awkward if you wife walked in on you watching it.

Do you know what though, I've just had a look at some other videos of the LFL on youtube. I was looking purely for pervy reasons, but I have to say the sport is actually really impressive! The skills and athleticism on show are very comparable to blokes' American football, in my opinion. At the risk of sounding even more sexist... I did not know women could throw and catch as well as this. Love the smaller pitch and team sizes too. Superb format. I think after a few more videos, the fact that every single one of the players looks good in a bikini might become a secondary thought.

BTW - the coaches on video #2 above are f***ing disgusting.

In fact there has been a female rugby version - check out 'Sexy Liga Rugby' from the Czech Republic. That's been quite popular as you can imagine in recent years
