"While some fans on Twitter praised her for breaking through in a male-dominated sport"....she didn't break through. She plopped down the prerequiste money to attempt and she came up short. I understand an injury of that nature would materially impact performance but there is nothing in her comments that suggest to me she had any business trying out for PRO football. Like so many things today attention is turned toward style over substance. She added..." When I had the opportunity to be in the NFL, one of the world's most competitive leagues, I absolutely had to take the chance." By the parameters set up (pay a fee, take a chance), theoretically every person to have played a collegiate sport has a "chance" to play under her analysis. Sorry, you don't and neither did she. The sad part is there was actually a build up to this before her "explosive" 19 yard kicks. I hope somebody has the decency to tell her to forget trying again. And no, she doesn't deserve credit for "trying"; she should know full well her capabilities (measured in yardage) long before entertaining this and should have certainly been able to verify to those watching by film that she can kick a football at least 40 yards before wasting their time. This isn't to say a woman is incapable of this but....well, go watch the video of her "performance" and tell me she had any business doing this.
