Not a bad article, but not totally poaitive. I hate the way they keep saying 'militeristic'. Calling Tournement ball 'militeristic' is insulting to both the players and the miltary. What the Military does is in no way a game, people die when they 'play'. And calling us Militeristic brings up images of Weekend Wacko Warrior Wannabes. Other than that, it was not bad.

This kinda got my heckles up:

Quote:
The Femmes Fatales, a women's team from Fort Myers, Fla., would disagree. It was started by a former dancer with business savvy, Tami Adamson, who was introduced to the game by her husband. She was not interested in playing herself, she said, until it occurred to her that a team of attractive women would be a magnet for industry sponsorships and television cameras. She was right.
In my mind this translated to:

"Hey, we might not be able to play, but we have boobs, so sponsor us!"
