I don't know about you guys, but I couldn't stop laughing for a good minute. Not necessarily because it's a female kicking, but because anyone seriously attempting to be a prospect. To come out and kick that...It's just funny. I also believe a guy would get more flak if he did that.

Incorrect.

This is why I truly believe it was for publicity from the jump...

From an article on ESPNw (which is ESPN for women and I had no idea that it existed):

So to whoever said earlier in the thread that they were mad b/c she got a tryout and they never will... WRONG. You have $275, you have a tryout. Have at it. But make sure your quads are ready for the push-ups and crunches.


Good research. Though to be fair, she wouldn't be the first person to try out as a kicker without much or any football background (heck, we had one on roster here).

I'm gonna round up $275 and go for it :lol:

this entire thread could be submitted to a sociology class as a final paper on interplaying social dynamics and ideological bases

I feel bad. Good for her though, to go out there and do it. Nothing but respect. You can't make fun of her. Just can't

When did Brucie get out of prison?

In all seriousness this was a joke. Did you hear 1 of her answers how she hoped video games would prepare her physically for the NFL. And I'm an all star QB because I throw 5500+ yards and 55+ tds a season in madden.

No one has mentioned the part about her doing push-ups and crunches during her 30-minute warm-up and not kicking a single ball...this seems like a huge joke to me. Better get that upper body strong for your kicking tryout!! That's a shame...I was rooting for her. She just kind of annoys me now.

I don't care about her quad injury, she could have found a way to prepare herself for this moment if she wanted to. Like someone else said before, her technique is laughable...she had zero follow-through on either kick.


Like someone else said, if she was already hurting before the kick, doing a pre-kick wouldn't make sense.

Nope, not in the slightest

Could it have hurt a little bit?

yes

but if she at all deserved to be there, she still would have kicked it further, injury or not


Im glad you could provide your doctoral expertise.

Made my week. Couldn't stop laughing at her. The whole thing was a joke from the beginning and she capped it off beautifully.

Such a dog and pony show. The media loves to throw softballs and you eat that poo up.

She did it for the lulz. Of course this bein the huddle the idiots come out in mass to bitch about affirmative action (What does that have to do with anything?) and make a few lighthearted rape joke (that aren't really jokes).
