I have no problem with women playing in the NFL if they can play up to par. I think there are a few women that could. The percentage is not probably real high, but I'd say there are some.
I think it is wrong to say women can't compete. For example, Reggie Miller was one of the best NBA players of all time and he's already in the Basketball Hall of Fame. But his sister all the time beat up on him in basketball.
I mean have you seen some of the women body builders out there? Some of those women could do some major beatup on some guys.
I think part of what puts girls at a disadvantage in football is that there is no girls football as far as little leagues, middle school and high school. In the sports that have that, look at the improvement of the athleticism of girls in those sports like basketball, soccer, volleyball, tennis, etc.
In each of those sports there are at least some women that could probably compete pretty well in the mens division of that sport.
For example in tennis, Serena hits her serves only 10 mph slower than the fastest serve by any male tennis player. I think physically some of them can. Maybe not a ton of them. But they are at a major disadvantage because there is no girls version of football.
I certainly think there are women out there that could do a good job as punters, kickers or wide receivers. I think it'd be a little more difficult finding women that could fit in well for say the offensive or defensive lines.
I think what you were referring to was the girl who tried out for the NFL as a kicker. To me, that really hurt the movement of women being able to play in the NFL more than it did to help it. She basically had almost never kicked field goals ever. Then she went out and tried to kick some, didn't have enough strength in her legs and missed and even injured herself. I know there are plenty of women out there that play soccer who easily could have kicked the ball through the uprights for a field goal. And many of them could give today's kickers a good run for their money. Women tend to be more accurate in their shots because they tend to pay closer attention. You see it in pool, basketball, and gun shooting.
I think people should be open minded. If a girl plays good enough to make the team, she should make the team. Bill Jean King already proved that it is possible for a woman to beat a man in sports.
