As NFL officials work feverishly to hammer out a labor deal less than 36 hours before the collective bargaining agreement expires (two more shrimp cocktails please, waiter), the Lingerie Football League is looking on from the sideline, hungry for leftovers. If the impossible comes to pass and the NFL season is delayed, the LFL — about to enter its third season — would like to step in and play on Sundays.
Can Madden LFL 12 be far behind?
From NBC affiliate WKYC:
Lingerie Football League officials announced Wednesday that the third season of LFL Football starting this fall could see a move in games being played on Sunday afternoons vs. Friday nights, should the NFL suspend or delay the start of its season.
This could be just the break the LFL is looking for, as it declared itself robust enough this past fall to establish three new franchises for the coming season: in Las Vegas, Cleveland and Green Bay. There were almost four, but Oklahoma City saw some tapes and was horrified.
Of course if the NFL season is scrapped altogether, we’d have a Lingerie Football League Super Bowl in early Feb. And counter-programming would be the Lingerie Puppy Bowl.
