Hello! Who agrees that girls should be allowed to play football?  laugh.gif

I think that girls can be just as good as boys but maybe boys are better in games because they enjoy it more and are more suited to it.  blink.gif

Please give me your views on this topic.  rolleyes.gif

If girls want to play football let them  tongue.gif we'd be a fascist state if we started telling people you can't play this sport or whatever cause your female.

That said, I don't think girls will ever get into a major club or woman's football ever be a mainstream as men in general will always be more physically built for a sport such as football (stamina etc). Disagree with me at your liesure.

I am sorry but I totaly disagree.Where i live down south in Aussie girls play mainstream football with the boys and stop themin thier tracks most of the time.They earn the respect of the fellow team mates if they put in the hard yards the same as any one else on the team. Unfortunatly when a girl hits 13 they cant play alongside the boys and have to play in their own league which means they have to travel further because not as many girls play as boys but the option is still out there. My daughter played football (aussie rules) for two years and knocked many a boy down kicked goals  and did just as much if not more (because she was a girl in a boy dominated sport) than the fellas. As far as soccer goes my oldest daughter has played soccer for many years against males and does just as well in that sport. My personal opinion is that in general we dont teach girls to acheive in sports we give them a barbie doll when the boy gets the footie.What if we gave the  the football to the girl aswell what would she be able to acheive then? clap.gif Anything maybe?

Key words in your arguement there wink2.gif Along comes puberty, and the guys leave us far, far behind. I can't say I've played much football, but wrestling training has underlined quite painfully for me the different levels of physical abilities between the average guy and the average woman (there's a great deal I'm not able to do, simply because I'm not big and strong enough).

In the professional ranks, I can't think of a single sport where woman can realistically compete with men, sad as it is to say. There's a huge difference between children playing against each other, and fully grown adults. It's a pity, but it's just the way things are.

Yes Men and Women are Physicaly differant but do we have to compete against them or encourage more women to play and train for various elite levels of sports .

There's really a limit to what training can do....true, there are exceptional female athletes in the world, but we're still limited by what our body's capable of doing. I remember hearing about a former Wimbledon woman's tennis champion, who said the hardest matches she had were against her coach.

Her coach was a retired male tennis player, who'd never broken the top 100 in his prime. She'd beaten him twice out of hundreds upon hundreds of games. Even at the absolute top levels, the "elite" you're talking about, there's a massive gulf we're not able to close.

So far as I know, there isn't any law that says women can't play football, or other sports with the men at a world class level...but it's never going to happen I'm afraid. It's just not practical if you intend to have a fair competition.

Ugh, even thru this age of equal rights we r such a sexist world. Girls should be allowed the chance to do anything that boys do, and boys anything that girls do. Jees. We're not 2 completely different species!!!!! And sum of the girls ive seen play football r just as good as the boys!

I believe women should be able to play football,but not against men.
It would not make for good watching as the men would not play the game to their full capability,due to not wanting to go for a tackle if its a woman on the ball.
The point is that it does come down to the fact that men are physically stronger then women,that will never change.

I think you all are correct(mostly) but just giving the girls the oportunity and encouragement at a junior level even changes attitudes like dunderheads and even many girls out there.sport teaches girls and boys to stive to achieve and how to compete against yourself and opposition.As lovely as barbie is she teaches girls to strive for the unatainable fantasy world which is why our divorce rate is soring .

huh.gif

That's an....interesting theory wacko.gif I would have thought most people stepped out of that particular fantasy world the moment they got a job, started living alone, or had any kind of life experience whatsoever tongue.gif

Anyone over the age of 15 who's still clinging to Barbie's perfect little world must be leading a seriously sheltered life huh.gif I've yet to find a guy who's still running around pretending to shoot at Mr. X well into his adulthood because that's what Action Man did in HIS life tongue.gif
