Hidden in the sarcastic and provocative words was a serious gender discrimination. In the midst of a country that promotes freedom like the United States, there are injustices and discrimination between men and women, so the story of Carli Lloyd is seen as a firecracker paving the way not only for female players to embrace the dream of joining the NFL, but also dissolving the discrimination in American sports in general.
Before Lloyd, there were a few female players who tried to break the stereotype but failed. Becca Longo is a case in point. She was the first woman to receive a football scholarship. Unfortunately, that’s all. Longo said that basically, she practiced vegetarian because up to now, the class is actively isolating Longo. They do not allow women to play with them.
American press said that there were two NHL American football teams inviting Carli Lloyd to join. Tom Brady used to show his support for Cardi. Maybe in the future, the NFL will have a women’s tournament and the name Cardi Lloyd will forever be remembered as a pioneer.
Does the NFL agree to allow female players to play?
According to NFL spokesman, Mr. Greg Aiello, the NFL’s law does not have a binding on the gender of the player. The NFL does not have a regulation that prohibits female players from playing. The requirement to become an NFL player is to graduate from high school and have good football skills. Thus, by law, Carli Lloyd is completely qualified to play in the NFL.
Carli Lloyd used to be a member of Man City
In 2007, Carli Lloyd joined the Women’s City team. Along with Man City, Carli Lloyd won the FA Cup female version. She is the one who scored the goal in the final. Unfortunately, Carli Lloyd’s loan period in Man City ended quite sadly. She elbowed Annie Heatherson (Yeovil Town) in the face and was suspended until the end of the loan period.
