So I see Greeneville Greene County Youth Football Associatio let's girls play. Why? Girls have ZERO business being in the sport! Is there anything that can be done to make sure no girls are playing with my son?

It is silly letting girls play football. They are asking for trouble. But, it's discrimination now if they don't allow it. Liberals at work.

Girls shouldn't be in sports, they should be in the kitchen making sammiches, the nerve well I guess the ugly fat girls have to have something to do.

I'll bet my daughter could give any boy out on the field a run for their money. Isn't it time for you backwoods people to change your closed mind thinking?

I wanted to play growing up but my Dad wouldn't let me... Said I was too fragile. I'm glad now that he wouldn't but only bc I know how boys back then would've treated me... I have a niece that plays now... She's tough and good. The guys on the team would much rather play with her than against her... Give her a chance... It may happen that she doesn't even make the first string, and your son doesn't play directly with her... Or it may happen that she is good and helps your son's team win a championship...:-)

To the one said girls should be in a kitchen... How about you come to my house and see how well that works for you...?!?

If thats what your Daughter wants to do I have no problem with it in say Pee Wee or Midgets, but come later years the boys are just way too strong and physical. Its not a matter of if there gonna get injured but when and how bad.

This is why I am glad I didn't play... Knowing now, that at a pee wee/ midget age, children are developing in their joints and bones... And any injury can cause malformation or lifetime problems... And as a teen girl, playing with the teen boys.... Yeah it'd take an extremely tough chick to handle that... Maybe if the girls are bigger boned and heavy, they might have a little more protection... But I don't have any daughters... Only sons. And when they said they weren't interested in football this year... I was very well okay with that.:-) I can hold my own... But I'm certainly not gonna stand there and just ask for it. Lol

The girls don't care if anyone watches, they just want to play. Is that what sports is all about? For kids it should be about having fun, learning to compete fairly and getting some exercise.

I keep thinking of that South Greene student who was paralyzed a few years back. Football is just way too rough for young people and there's so many playing that the chances of getting a scholarship, let alone going pro, is slim to nonexistent. So, what's the point in taking the risk?

Yep, teach him the same sexist attitude and you can about guarantee no girls will play with your son. Ever.

She's in peewee and she is 6. If you're man enough to come to her face and tell her she doesn't belong in football then come on and you can deal with me.
