| | Roger Goodell Says Women To Play In NFL In 2012
The NFL announced last night that, starting in 2012, the league will allow women to play. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the announcement to a group of reporters outside the NFL headquarters in New York City early Wednesday evening. He said he hoped the decision to include female players would convey the NFL’s more “feminine” and “progressive” sides. “Times are changing,” said Goodell, “the military is about to allow women into combat. If women are going to be fighting on the battlefield, how can we stop them from participating in football. It’s not fair The NFL is open to all players now – regardless of gender.” According to a poll taken by National Football League, over 88 percent of active players say they approve of new rule change. However, they did raise some relevant concerns. “Will we have to share our locker rooms with the female players?” said Steelers quarterback, Ben Rothlisberger. “Because if we do, that’s totally cool with me!”
