Skip to comments.Most of Toronto’s lingerie football team quits in dispute

Team star Krista Ford and other members of Toronto's lingerie football league are taking their ball and suggestive undergarment sets and going home.
Twenty-two of the team's 26 players abruptly quit this week after a dispute with management about roster cuts. Krista wrote about the decision on her Facebook page:
Hey everyone! I am really sad to let you all know that I have left the Toronto Triumph, along with many of my teammates. It was one of the hardest decisions I've had to make thus far, however, I had to stand up for what I felt was right. Unfortunately, it cost me the greatest sport in the world. [She also played frisbee golf? -- CC]
Lest you think Krista wasn't serious about the lingerie walkout, she then quoted Malcolm X. "A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything," Krista wrote. That's actually based off an old Alexander Hamilton line, meaning not only is Krista using the civil rights movement as a basis for hanging up her shoulder pads and bras, but the American revolution too. One can only assume she's keeping the Civil War in her back pocket for when things get really heated.

Awww,what a shame! Now how about starting a team in which good-looking men are running around in their tighty-whities?(As long as they are clean and still white!)
I guess it back to the sidewalk for those “ladies”
They let their panties get into a wad
Who, What, When, Where, Why, Chris. These are the things that go in the lead. After wasting 45 seconds to read your putative column, I still have no idea why the putative athletes walked out. This might be excusable if your writing was any good, or you at least had a few pictures, but alas, neither of those ingredients were there either.
The lingerie football league is like Yoohoo. Remember Yoohoo? On the drawing board it's like the perfect kids' drink. It's two things you can't resist: chocolate and soda. And ... it sucks. Similarly, how can a sport that combines scantily clad women and football even theoretically be improved? [OK, there's the one obvious thing...] Anyway, no, just like Yoohoo, Lingerie Football actually combines two great things and produces one really craptastic result.
Glad to see that in Chris they've found the right man to cover that beat.
Easy now I love YooHoo. That is my one secret vice I still have. A cold YooHoo, and some chocolate chip cookies. MMmm, mmm.
Works for those of us who love chocolate milk, but can’t take the milk part.
They keep the stuff so darn expensive, there must be others of us out here.
Been to one game, sharing tickets with my Father-in-Law who one them at a Kiwanas charity auction. It was the stupidest thing I ever attended.
One, adding lace trim to sweaty work-out shorts and T-top does not lingerie make.
And two, The head banging music played between each down gave us a headache 10 minutes into the game.
Won - not one

No. You are the only one; that's why it's now over $1000/bottle. It's the Dom Perignon of pop. Except it's awful. Please stop drinking it so the poor kids in China who have to bottle the stuff can make lead painted toys or something useful, or at least something less harmful like melamine contaminated milk.
I still have half a bottle I got at a corner store in 1961. When the car won't start I pour a capfull of it in the tank. My Mom used to use it as a spot remover until it ate a hole in my Dad's coveralls.
Manifestly then, you were not educated in the American public school system, where most states now mandate something at least three times stupider than a lingerie football game for 182 days per year.
It is worth a look at her Facebook page.
The comments are “interesting”.
What, no pichers???
Women athletes in lingerie = not guilty.
Wow. Well, among those who have commented on her Facebook message is one........”Anita Leigh.”
Sorry, I like living on the edge. Cost be d*mned.
If the little Chinese workers are concocting the formula for my YooHoo, it’s time taken away from their ability to make a chemical weapon to destroy the Universe.
So if you’re not drinking YooHoo, you’re endangering National Security!!
God Bless America!
LOL! (Tongue firmly planted in cheek)
I would be glad to join you if you'll hold it 100 yards from the store entrance. Damn judge.
Solidarity! Don’t dis ma sistaz!
o/~ We shall overcoooooooooome... o/~
We have a dream to be judged by the quality of our bootyliciousness rather than the coverage of our uniforms.
Lingerie football is like an article someone posted awhile ago about topless/bottomless housekeepers. Fine to look at and all, but often an excuse to do slipshod work. I fail to see how there can be serious football going on with no protective padding to speak of.
“o/~ We shall overcoooooooooome... o/~”...
“Perhaps I’ve misjudged the integrity of the lingerie football league, and I apologize in advance if I have, but these are women playing a sport in bras and panties with unattached garter straps. The current picture on the front of the league website shows more boob than an issue of Maxim. (That still exists, right?) There are downloadable wallpapers that, if used, would force 13-year-old boys to keep their laptops under their mattress. The whole league is based on the idea of creating celebrity. Football is merely the vessel to get there.”
Not serious...or series, even.
I know what their audience is creating, and it isn’t celebrity.
That too. ;^)
But maybe Yoohoo is the chemical weapon designed to destroy the Universe. In which case, you would be my canary in the coal mine. Could you ping me every other day or so? Just so I know when to start hitting the bottled water supply...
