Can you imagine the shit storm if an article about Carli Lloyd missing a PK in a USWNT game were published......

Suit her up.  Let her put her money where her mouth is.  Heck, have her play for the Dolphins for league minimum for one year.

Absolutely.  Sports should be a meritocracy (as should many things).  If she can do the job, let her do the job.  If she can't, cut her.

Might as well try it, though.

I just want her to suit up so the world can watch her fail.  The Buccs kicker misses, and no one cares to focus on how hard the job is.  "OMG, he missed a kick.  It's so easy!  Let a woman do it!"  Every time you see shit like this, it's in a vacuum.  Let her fail miserably (or succeed, who knows) in front of millions.  Then we can write the same exact articles about her and be called sexist.

This story comes up all the time.......if she was so good at kicking then why didnt this happen in JH or HS football?

Last time I checked.....there isnt a lot of girls kicking for HS teams.

This felt like a WTF moment.

Someone obviously doesn't know their target audience (the ad, not QO's post, which was kind of funny).

Is that an NRA ad or a Kamala Harris ad?

Ah, it might be an NRA ad, in which case, the person just made a shitty ad, but they're targeting properly.

I can honestly say I'd start watching those music/singing/talent contest shows if more of them had animal attacks as integral parts of performances. Just think of how much more entertaining The Voice would be if contestants had to belt out their song while fending off a starving wolf out for blood!

Debates in newsrooms must be getting quite heated over whether or not to run that....
