For all intentions and purposes, a 2012 US LFL season seems to be impossible at this point. Now that the international All-Star tour is over with, a lot of the girls that play in locales within close proximity to teams currently suiting up in Canada have made those respective rosters.
From a business-perspective, does it really make a whole lot of sense for the LFL to be expanding into international markets? The game seems to have some type of foothold in the US, even if attendance at the games isn’t full capacity. To completely abandon the 2012 LFL season seems shortsighted, in my opinion.
News has now surfaced that the league will return in April 2013 – but why take the “year” off when you built some momentum? They seem to hedging a lot of their bets on international markets that have yet to fully embrace regular American football.

Back on subject… don’t get me wrong. I totally get the appeal of scantily-clad American women running around on a football field. I also understand that sex sells, and it might be the best way to get American football in front of international dudes.
In all seriousness, though, here in the States, we are primed for football. We live it, eat it, and breathe it. There’s no better place to grow a professional football league than America. And over the next two weekends, we are gearing up for the kickoff for MORE football.
If you want to make football for non-North American markets, don’t shy away from it. But instead of equipping the girls with shoulder pads and helmets, have them put on shin guards.
