i think girls should be able to play football on a boys football team. i think that because girls are just as strong as guys are. Girls are just as fast as boys. so in a matter of fact i believe that girls can do anything that a boy can do.
LakevilleNorthJT

Con

I negate. Resolved: Girls can play on a boys football team.

KRITIK: I content that there is no possible way for a girl to play on a boys football team. By definition, a boys team consists of only boys. Also by definition, the moment a girl enters this team, the team is no longer a boys team but rather a COED team.

Being that my opponents advocacy is fundamentally flawed you must vote negative. (CON)

ok well what if the girl was just as good as the guys. and it wouldnt mader if one girl made it far and squar an that team. it wouldnt really make it coed. the guys would just have to expect a girl beening on the team. and just because a girl maybe be a different gender the males we can still play on a guys football team. cause girls can do anything that a guy does.

Con

My opponent makes one argument. "cause girls can do anything that a guy does."

1st- Irrelevant
2nd- I concede to this argument.

I make one argument. " I contend that there is no possible way for a girl to play on a boys football team. By definition, a boys team consists of only boys. Also by definition, the moment a girl enters this team, the team is no longer a boys team but rather a COED team."

My opponents response is that if only one girl play on the team then it really isn't COED. However, the resolution says girl(s) not girl. By this, my opponents interpretation is simply wrong. She never directly responds to my point and thus it is still true.

BOYS TEAM=JUST BOYS
GIRLS TEAM=JUST GIRLS
COED= BOYS + GIRLS

Thus, there is no way girls can be on a be on a boys football team which makes the resolution fundamentally untrue, meaning that you must vote CON.

Wow. I am for one with the pro. I am a girl who plays on the guys football team. Its hard work, but i did it because i love the sport. I does take a lot of strength, but speed and intelligence too. I was a tight end. I'm not buff or big just average i would say(one of the small dudes). I am not gay either.
I just happen to love the sport and ended up trying out and making it.Just dont do it for guys because you are in it for the wrong reason. Urgh i cant stand it when girls are thought to be weak. I am for one not weak and i am not being allowed to play lacrosse but i am going to fight b/c of the sport rules on girls trying out for guy teams because there isn't any girl team. Girl Power. :)

I don't know if the pro knew this, but there is a law that states that in the absense of a team specific to a certain gender, memebers of the opposite gender can try out for the oppostie genders team

Ie: If there is not a girl football team at a school, then coaches and school administration are legally required to allow them to try out for the boys football team

I'm not trying to offend, but I think its ironic that she was talking about girls being as tough as guys are, and then this topic got brought up. But I am in a good mood because I just hit up the studio so I am gonna say something geniunely nice. Just because you started drinking doesnt make you that guilty. You were probably just trying to have some harmless fun, but with alcohol things always get out of hand. It was more of his fault for taking advantage of a drunk girl. That was irresponsible, and just because you made a mistake doesnt make you a slut. And I am truly sorry about your first experience. Now that being said, I am done being nice for the year and Im gonna go throw up.

I know weight lift for soccer and only during soccer seaon. I am tough but when it came to a freaking 230 pound guy no i was not. I think if you were me and were as tiny as I am (which is only 139 pounds and 5"2) with not a whole hell of alot of arm strenght, you'd be just like me. ( If you were a girl, of course).
I know I say I'm rought and tough on my profile and I am. But what I meant was out of my friends I'm the strongest one out of all of them. I'm the one who is always sticking up for them and fighting for them. I never once had a guy be stronger than me like that. But then again I never tried to fight off a guy before. So I think theres a difference. But oh well.
