  • Description

    American Football in the United States is a multi-million dollar sport. It has replaced baseball in the past several years as the number one national spectator sport.

    Although American professional or collegiate football reaches an estimated audience of 30 million on weekends during the autumn season, football played by women is still comparatively rare. The Toledo Troupers and Dallas Bluebonnets are two of six professional women's teams in America, each with a full roster of players, coaches, and medical staff. They also have their own superstars. Linds Jefferson, for instance, scored 25 touchdowns in five games las year - record to make many a male star envious.

    The rules are strict - no long hair, early to bed, healthy steak and potatoes diet, and, above all, a player must have the permission of either her husband or her parents before she can play. The women are not all "women libbers", they just like to play. Most are single or divorced, although one player is the mother of five.

    Each team has at least one 260-pounder on their roster.
