Lingerie Football Rant, So, it would appear that Chris Michaelson, head coach of the Seattle Mist team in the Legends Football League (formerly known as the Lingerie Football League, a re-designation we didn't know about), had a couple of anger management moments when speaking to his players at the half of a recent game between the Mist and the Green Bay Chill. Coach Michaelson was unhappy with his team's effort, and went on the power-rant you can watch at the top of his very post.
A few random thoughts after watching the video:
-- Dude, you're coaching LINGERIE FOOTBALL. Ease up on the gas a bit.
-- Dude, if you were Vince Lombardi or Bill Parcells (who could presumably get away with a rant like this), you wouldn't be coaching LINGERIE FOOTBALL.
-- It's all well and good to go all "SUPERCOACH!!!!!," but in the wake of the Mike Rice abuse scandal, throwing 50 f-bombs per minute and using terms like "retarded" and "stupid" with your own players (something Vince Lombardi would have never done; though Parcells probably would), is not terribly smart. You might want to check yourself before you, you know, wreck yourself.
-- Anyone else have a feeling that this guy has a few marital issues?
-- Anyone else have a feeling that this guy is angling for an NCAA coaching job?
A representative from the LFL told TMZ that "Everything is in line as far as what is expected from a football locker room, but we don't condone the use of the word 'retarded.'”
