Should women be allowed to play in the same football team as men? Watch
I'm not saying that female footballers are terrible but football is also a very much physical sport (not as physical as rugby) and even with the diving culture that has been growing in the game, it plays way too big of a role.
Compare the consistency of passes, the difference in how space is utilised, the power of shots and more bits and bobs - you'll see huge differences especially with the national teams.
Men (generally) have the physical advantage and I think it would be unsafe.
Also, my former point still stands that most women would likely have to drop into obscure leagues to still compete, which would pretty much destroy all top women footballers' careers.
Let's put it this way:
When I was younger, girls played with us, one was especially good, and to this day I'd say she's more skilled than I. But as we grew up it sorta stopped, because any game where we'd play mixed it just wouldn't be fun. Why?
Boys wouldn't "want" to fully tackle a girl.
Boys would only pass to the girl when it was out of pity. (To include her after 10 mins pass without her basically touching it).
And in the few rare occasions the guys played fully on, things got awkward, wardrobe malfunctions, kicks in the groin, touching breasts by accident and then they'd get offended etc.
So I'd lean more towards no, in adult pro games anyway.
Ha no. Men and women are different, period. We have different styles of play, different strengths and weaknesses, different ways of handling events, etc. It's also those differences that make people more supportive of male football hence the higher revenues and salaries
Men are better at football. /thread
Ok they got thrashed, but that was an all womens team v an all male team. If the teams were mixed gender, that would have been fairer.
All male pro team VS mixed pro team
Mixed pro team gets thrashed? Cause the woman play like non pro boys of 17?
Imagine England decides '' mixed team'' and plays against brazil with full man team. I'm pretty sure england doesnt stand a chance as brazil was just smarter in picking a team.
But lets say everyone has to play a mixed team. Even then everyone would go full in for the goals, no holding back. You want to be the reason your team lost the world cup? dont think so.
I remember people speaking of a girl team for League of Legends consisting of some of the best world class females, they got thrashed by the worst teams in the league.
They even got thrashed by non pro teams quite a bit I believe.
I believe only 1 girl played in a pro team for a bit, but that didnt fully count In my opinion, as she was transgender, AKA born as a guy
