  1. This is as fucked up as women in combat. This is just more fucking horse shit that is ruining America. Go be a cheerleader.

  2. Am I really the one that throws them in jail or am I not just sharing what You said?

    You said their city burns before the wedding, You're the One that passes judgement, You're the One that said it was going to happen to them, it's Your army.. may Your Will be done not mine..

  3. good for her if that's what she wants!… I have ZERO issues with someone pushing to compete in a sport for which there is no alternative for them to enjoy….

    lets be real here… theres no "girls" football for her to join and if shes not scared to get hammered like a man would be then all the more credit to her lol

    this is very different than men pretending to be women competing against actual women… or a woman pretending to be a man taking hormone enhancements competing against normal women (hormone enhancements which if any other girl took JUST for the performance benefits would be considered cheating)

    sports aren't supposed to be "political"….

  4. If she is a kicker she will be fine, it's hers team's job to keep people off her.
    I bet they will work harder as she is a female.

  5. Funny shit, she is only 18, she will go nowhere far, pathetic news from CNN. ACKNOWLEDGE the difference between the superiority of men vs. the inferiority of women!

  6. WOW!!! I've been reading the comments and OMG there are sooooo many men that hate this!! They are afraid!!! They know Women can surpass them and they are AFRAID to lose POWER!!

  7. This just women watching TV shows and movies thinking they can do it all. Women slept there way into the entertainment industry and then used divorce to get power. Now they make sure just about every show or movie has women being the strongest and smartest, so they can feel empowered. So, they see that constantly and think its reality instead of fiction. If they can't their there way it just turns into harassment claims or whatever else they can come up with. Its typical money for nothing that women are experts at.

    Obliviously small women cannot play football in the NFL. Might be possible for a kicker to slide by in some small college. I can just see a woman kicker when the handler flumbes the ball and she gets into her hands somehow and tries to run.

    OH, and I hate Trump beyond words an ready know all of women's silly simple minded shaming comments when they are in denial, which their are more than a few in these comments. I actually don't care this girl is trying to play football but I know its not for the love of football.

  8. Don't let the idiots get you down, Becca. There will always be naysayers. Don't listen to them. Be like Nike. Just Do It. Congrats!

  9. Research Adams State Football record, they have sucked for years. Adams is a very small Univ. in a very small town. So no big deal, why this should be making CNN is stupid.

  10. So can guys play on girls teams now? Or is it just that blatant that this video is stating women are so athletically inferior to men that when one is actually as good as their male counterpart we throw down sports barriers…

  11. I think I'm going to Adams state or where ever the hell shes playing next year and be a cheerleader. I'll be dating a football player. Classic romance

  12. Not only do you have to kick a 30, 40, 50 yard field goal with a 70% accuracy. She also has to put that kickoff in the back of the end zone plus she has to kick left, right middle … Then show the coaches she can push, pull, tackle or just take a hit from the second line on a kickoff return team. There's a reason you put 2nd and 3rd team outside LB's Full Back's and RB's on the 2nd line. She would actually die if somebody decleated her… So you guys don't worry about a female player ever playing in the NFL.. It will never happen. the liability and the exposure would be devastating to the NFL if a poor little 135 pound chick got lit up and died from a blow from a man doing his job…

  13. Congratulations on the scholarship "Beca" keep on working toward your dream. Simply outstanding that she will be playing the game she loves at the next level. She not only secured a scholarship for football but her educational needs will be met while planning for her future in life. Her accuracy is astounding and I am certain that with the heightened echelon of coaching she will only excel. Good for you and I pray that she has nothing but continued success!!

  14. Very sexist. A woman is allowed to play for a mens team but I guarantee you there would be outrage if a man wanted to play on a women's soccer team.

  15. I think this is just a gimmick. I looked it up and she has no stats, in fact, they have another kicker, who is also a freshman and he and another guy are doing the kicking. Tiago Paim and Montana Gomez.

  16. Why are girls celebrated when they enter their way into traditional boy sports? Are boys allowed to do the same thing? Do we let a boy wrestle on any girls team he chooses? Can boys have this welcomed freedom,almost being hailed as some kind of hero,to enter into girls activities? This whole gender neutral/make everyone equal thing just sucks if you ask me.

  17. There are clickbait ads headlining the possibility of this broad going to the NFL. A woman finally gets a scholarship to a D2 school and the media shits itself to make this a big deal. SHe's pretty and she'll get a good bit of fame and freebies out of this, but women don't have the mental makeup to do what NFL kickers do. Her life will be much more convenient than it would have otherwise been for a few years, but the NFL is nonsense. I also imagine she'll be offered a job by a company with a woman owner or CEO and then she'll file a sexual harassment claim in a few years when the attention goes away and she misses it.

  18. Watch she'll say she was raped for someone accidentally falling on her tit

    Breaking news woman states she was raped during a game in the NFL

  19. Lol the guys behind her are just gonna stare lol, what happens in the locker room stays in there

    I wonder if the coach will say hit the showers to the team she's in currently

  20. I think we should just give her the Danica Patrick award for participatiion. When you've never done anything,the bar is pretty low.

  21. Adams State is NOT "top-tier school", it's Division 2 football. And she only kicks extra points. It's publicity stunt, and some poor Black kid got screwed out of going to college because some rich White girl is an attention seeker.

  22. When someone lays a massive but LEGAL on her and she starts snoring, the feminist movement along with the social justice warrior community are going to all up in arms and say you shouldn't hit a women

  23. Roughing the kicker fouls happen, if just by accident…and so…are defensive players expected to remain as aggressive as they are now, or are they supposed to intentionally be less aggressive to decrease the possibility of roughing the new female kickers?
    I would argue that it goes against nature or at least against societal training to ask a man to put a woman at risk of great harm just as if she were a man. And do feminists really want to eliminate this protection provided for women? If so, then should men treat a woman who insults them the same as they would treat a man who insults them? If so, then we either had better invest in a lot of emergency room beds, or women will have to learn to live by a complete new set of rules, where they are treated like a diminutive man would be treated, and they have to control what they say and do just as a diminutive man has to.

  24. Probably ALL kickers, male or female, would get dropped if hit by a 6'5", 300lb. linebacker, but you know what? MY money is on her getting back up, just like the boys- she looks tough as nails & I like her work ethic! So, to all you couch-warming wannabee sports experts, I say 'hide & watch'- LOL!!

  25. There will never be a time when a girl can accomplish something and men won’t bring her down. Seriously, she’s playing D2 football with boys. It’s not an easy sport in general and certainly not in her shoes. Sorry if this for some reason threatens your masculinity but get over yourself.

  26. It takes a scared little boy afraid of getting shown up to talk negative about her. Yea its football and yea their are risk. But she has the nerves to hit the field and do what she is there to do. Congrads to becca.

  27. I think when someone is saying she kicks a 50-yarder Technically she's on the 40-yard line and 10 yards to the back of the endzone as to where an NFL guy would be kicking it from the 50 hence the 10-yard difference from male to female. So no she will not be making the NFL. And after really thinking about it I realized these guys in the NFL are kicking field goals in warmups probably from 65 and 70 yards but of course this is with no defense on the field that they have to kick the ball over so the actual range is way more due to the ball the distance has to travel going over defense. And if I'm not mistaken they move the extra points this year to the 35 which would be a 45 yard field goal. I don't know if I'm a hundred percent correct on that but that means she could basically kick a little bit more than extra points only. Again I could be wrong on this so I'm sure it's not exact

  28. Females getting stronger and stronger #Respect another female Toni Harris earned a scholarship as well for a football university I believe. I look up to these two amazing females my goal is pretty much the same as there’s 💚💯

  29. Bears should draft Becca Longo. They need a kicker badly. If I was Pace I would take her and give her a small contract and develop her. She's quite the kicker.

  30. I think it's great that she has earned a spot in college. I just dont get the whole angle that feminist take with this story. They act as if there are men who wont let women into the sport because they are sexist, and this girl is battling sexist men. I think she just likes to kick.
    But come on. Women dont play football typically because men are just on another level physically for the game of football. Kicker is the only position where it is physically possible for a girl to play, and even then I worry about some 300lb lineman falling on her leg or something.

    It's great that she is playing, but quit calling everyone sexist when almost nobody is upset with a female kicker. Also drop it with the she could be the first female NFL kicker. Cool it, she is a redshirt freshman at a D-II school.

  31. ROFL! Top tier?! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
