Girls playing hockey is just plain stupid. But they have a point they and their "supporters" must prove.

Has anyone ever watched girls hockey? Basketball? Soccer? I resent my tax dollars subsidizing these "sports". I believe ALL sports teams should be self-supporting. If nobody comes, kill it.
same could be said for sports for boys.

In general, men's sports subsidize women's.

I actually like girls basketball but I have never seen them lose teeth or get knocked unconscious. There are some things girls are not equal to men in, I don't want some woman trying to carry me out of a burning building for instance.

Yah, it's all or nothing with you liberal fear mongers. We think women should refrain from danger so we want to send them back to the 18th century. We don't want to drive a toy electric car so we want the earth to turn into a burning ball of fire. Keep drinking the koolade!

told ya before. I'm a Republican.
not all Republicans want to keep women chained to the house however.
girls who play sports have a lower risk of being teen moms. since they are more involved in sports than boys.
http://www.education.com/reference/article/Re... Common sense and a growing body of research suggests, however, that creating opportunities for girls to play sports can play a key role in reducing teen pregnancy. For example, female athletes in grades 9 through 12 are less than half as likely to get pregnant as their non-athlete peers1, and they tend to have higher self-esteem and more positive body images.
.
I would rather have healthier teen girls due to sports than having them on welfare due to them not being into sports.

also, sports teaches discipline.
it also teaches in many cases life lessons. including on how to work as part of a team.
if the team has a good coach. the kid learns how to check their ego at the door/gate.
my husband is teaching our daughter martial arts. he wants her to be able to have the well balanced self esteem that she should have. and if a guy tries to force her to do something that she does not want to do. as in sex. she will be able to back that "NO" up with what is needed.
life in general is dangerous. it is how you go about it that can lessen it or make it worse.
women die in childbirth. more did when they did not exercise or do some form of sports. they were told to take it easy during it.

College football alone provides about 2/3 of the athletic revenue, it is very hard to find a womans sport on tv, but im sure you will tell me they are on all the time. and for instance college womans softball is a loser in revenue.

Take the University of Florida. During the 2009-2010 school year it raked in $44 million from football and $2 million from men's basketballóbut lost $2.8 million on women's basketball,$5.3 million on other men's sports, and $10 million on other women's sports. And that's before you include the cost of coaches' salaries ($17.4 million), aid to student athletes ($7.5 million), and recruiting ($1.4 million).

Although this is not a link, this quote came from a very through story about U of M athletic expenses from 2009.
"Though cuts were made in football and menís hockey expenses last year, Minnesota had eight sports with total costs of more than $1 million, while menís track and womenís hockey topped $900,000. Of these, all but three sports lose money, some more than others: last year, womenís basketball operated at a $2 million loss.

With its profitable menís hockey team, Minnesota is among a handful of schools in the country with three positive revenue sports. But the programís financial success depends on menís basketball and, especially, football. In these two sports, the past 10 years have been a decade to forget."

Minnesota has 3 men's sports which are self-sufficient, the rest including all women's athletic sports basically depend on revenue from the football program to survive and recently the revenue from the Big Ten Network. The requirement of Title IX changed college sports. Even a Big Ten school Wisconsin dropped men's NCAA baseball to accommodate Title IX. If it wasn't for a major financial contribution from Kathleen Ridder, I don't think women's hockey would be a major women's sport at the University.

Football drives the financial engine at every University. Why do you think these small schools will schedule Division I opponents? Because the revenue portion they receive for playing a big-time school can cover their athletic budget for the whole year.

Think about the physics, their chest is much heavier which makes it more likely if they hit the boards head on their spine will take a hit. Those 2 pendulums cause stress on the spine. Hockey may be a dangerous sport for females.

Mens athletics fund womens athletics, plain and simple
Just because you don't want to believe it, doesn't make it any less true.

It gets worse, how about taking girls off the street for a newly formed college rowing team? Just to be fair to the girls. How is that fair?http://www.dailybruin.com /index.php/article/2011/05/ucl a_team_numbers_help_fulfill_ti tle_ix_requirements
Title nine is a joke, but don't believe it, keep living in la la land.
