man that's unfortunate for her. it would have been awesome for her to lay some hotshot out that thought they were going to waltz in a touchdown return

In all honesty, how'd she get the tryout? Her form is atrocious and looks like how you'd expect a chick to kick. Not how "the first female athlete to get a tryout at a pro sponsored event" should look. She kicks like my 8 year old son.

I have to assume her leg was REALLY REALLY fuged up. So much so that she couldn't follow through or reach back or plant her foot or anything. It looked at best to be an attempt at an onside kick.

She couldn't handle the stress, period.

Yeah I have no respect for affirmative action style tryouts. When a woman earns a roster spot on merit I will be impressed beyond belief. However our country has become obsessed with "first" minority, woman, child, gay, etc.... to do anything. We are so eager to "break boundaries" that we promote people that haven't earned it yet. I'm not mad at the kicker. I'm not here to put her down. But the people in the media and NFL that stirred this tryout up had ulterior motives.

How do you know their motive wasn't to put such a bad display on that females no longer try out?
