    When a boy is tackled by a 200# player, there's an explosion of slugs and snails and puppy dog tails. Girls, on the other hand, are filled with sugar and spice and everything nice. If you're a 200# guy? Which one are you gunna' nail?

    Why do the homosexuals and atheists post thread after thread attacking Christianity? Why do they hate that others have a faith and happiness that they themselves lack?

    I don't know. If she can handle it, I don't see why not. To me, common sense means that if a person is able to do something, their gender should not be an obstacle. Maybe someday when the boys mature, she won't be as able to do it on a high level. That's fine, if she can't do it anymore, then she can't do it anymore.

    It just seems to me like you're saying that common sense dictates that girls can't do some things simply because they don't have a penis. I've never seen a football player use his penis on the field (Thank God. Though that may make the sport more popular among women....)

    What do homosexuals and atheists have to do with this girl playing football?

    Wow, believe it or not, and Christianity aside, I actually agree with you here. American football is a dangerous sport, but you know what? Cheerleading is MORE dangerous. So I say if she wants to play, and she meets qualifications to play the game, and makes the team, I say let her play.

    It would be fairer if they had physical standards for everyone. Minimum/Maximum position weights kinds of things. Do you see it as dangerous (forget political correctness) for an 80# girl to be playing on the field with players (of either sex) that outweigh her by 75-100 pounds? I do.

    The school doesn't mention any concern about safety. The problem is that girls and boys will *gasp* in contact with each other.

    Also, she is #110 and I see no mention of any 200# players. However, I did see this:

    "We didn't make a big deal about it," said Reichwein. "Anyone who went head-to-head with her ended up on the ground. After a week, (her gender) was laid to lest."
    Caroline also caught the attention of talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.

    Sporting her navy and gold football jersey on set, Caroline won over the crowd during her appearance last month.

    When asked whether she's gotten hurt, the crowd erupted when she quipped with a made-for-TV smile, "I've never really gotten hurt, but I have hurt people."

    Certainly would make the 'huddle' more interesting.....

    With all the changes that are taking place in football today concerning hits, and such, the game is nowhere near as jarring as it used to be.
