Lingerie Football League
The Lingerie Football League or LFL is a women's American football league. The each team have 7 women that play football in a sexy and provocative outfits. The concept originated from the Super Bowl half-time alternative television special called the Lingerie Bowl which draws millions of viewers as a pay-per-view event broadcast annually directly opposite the Super Bowl halftime show. The television show has become a staple of Super Bowl Sunday festivities for millions worldwide being broadcast in over 85 countries.
In 2009, the ten LFL inaugural season teams are scheduled to compete in a 20 week season with games at major arenas and stadiums. The weekly games are scheduled to be shot in 1080i high-definition and to broadcast on some NetworkTV affiliate stations, international stations, and on-line streaming.
Play style is full-contact and similar to other indoor football leagues. Uniforms consist of helmets, shoulder pads, elbow pads, knee pads, bras, and panties.
There are no field goals and no punts. There is a kick-off to start the game and second half.
A team must attempt to get a first down on every fourth down. After a touchdown, a team can attempt a one-point conversion from the two yard line, or a two-point conversion from the five-yard line.
There are seven women on each side of the 50-yard field, the same as the Continental Indoor Football League, but one fewer than the eight players usually found in arena football or other indoor leagues. Teams consist of 18 players, only 12 of whom are active on game day. This means that there are usually 3 or 4 players who play both offence and defence
The standard offensive formation features 1 quarterback, 2 running backs, 1 center, and 3 wide receivers. The standard defensive formation features 2 defensive linewomen, 2 linebackers, 2 cornerbacks, and 1 safety.
The field is 50-yard between end zones, 30 yards wide, and the end zones are 8 yards deep, roughly the same as other indoor leagues.
A game consists of two 17-minute halves, separated by a 15-minute halftime. In the event of a tie, an 8-minute sudden-death overtime is played.
