    We are having a flag football tournament in P.E., and the teams are co-ed. I do not really mind that, because it is an excuse to have girls all over you trying to get the ball.

    Here is what ticks me off:

    The special rules to make the game more fair for the girls. More fair? B.S. It just makes it impossible for the guys.

    1 in 4 plays, we have to throw to a girl, even if they are all just standing there being helpless.

    We cannot score off of a kick off unless a girl runs it into the endzone.

    It makes it so hard to have fun! The girls do not play, they just stand there, but they whine and gripe about it when we do not give them the ball.

    I have no problem playing with girls if they will actually play, and not get special rules that are actually implying that they are physically inferior to the guys and need special rules to make them feel useful.

    If I was a girl, I would be mad about rules like that. They do imply inferiority.

    If girls want to play with the guys, they should not have rules for them that make sure they aren't going to be knocked around like a guy would be, or have rules that give them chances to be "part of the team".

    They should have to follow the same rules as the guys!

    Better yet, have boy PE classes and girl PE classes so we do not have this problem that ruins the fun of football and all other games!

    :mad:

    you said it.


    hey mr. money, why don't you use the opportunity to play _with_ the girls - help them out, show them some things, and toss the ball to them and let them play some too. you'd be amazed at how far that would get you.

    besides, they're not going to be impressed with your tag football prowess if you are only hogging the ball.

  12. i don't think the class should be separated by boys/girls, it should be separated by people who want to play/people who don't want to play. lord knows that a willing girl would be a better football player than me. down with sports.
     
  13. This only works if the girls are WILLING to play, and not over concerned about breaking a nail.

    Been there, done that. I know how you feel. The girls who want to play awlays make themselves useful, and usually participate as equals. It's the bimbo-esque girls who stand on the field whispering and giggleing that cause administrators to create these rules. It's not trying to bring down your game, it's forcing them to play.

    Anyway, a REAL game is always played after school, with VERY few rules.:D:D:D

    Rock on

    I cannot hog the ball. I'm always a lineman... so I am always protecting someone. Never get the ball much, unless it is a fumble our we need a play to mess with the opposition'e heads.

    My problem is not the inability to hang around girls, I just always end up palling up to them which ruins my dating chances.

    You nailed it. If the girls want to play, I do not mind the special rules as much. But if they are sitting there talking about the rumor that tommy banged suzy but suzy was cheating on him with some dude from East High, I hate playing with them.

    I like the your idea of how to split people up... that would work great.
     
  17. instead of passing it to them biff it at their head, that will change their opinion on wanting those rules

    They are buddy. You know those pesky things called hormones, and that little y-chromosome....yeah, they're a bitch. I mean, females are more flexable and sometimes have more stamina. But it's an inargueable FACT that men are physically superior to women. There are facts, and there are opinions which are argueable. In this case it happens to be fact.
