Recap WFB Talk – Player Injuries

16 Sep

What would a WFB Talk show be without some type of unexpected excitement?  The show went on as scheduled.  All our lines were connected, but for some reason Beebe’s phone couldn’t be heard over the air.  Beebe and I passed my phone during the score and league updates.  During the league updates, my computer overheated and shut down.  It didn’t shut down prior to my league reporting, but while I was reading the Sacramento Sirens tryouts.  I wanted to report next on the new IWFL team, the Kansas City Tribe, but unfortunetely when the computer shut down, so did the myspace bulletin update that was posted this morning.  Here is part of the write up below:

IWFL Welcomes Kansas City TribeAustin TX -The Independent Women’s Football League is proud to announce that Mindy White, representing the Kansas City Tribe, has been awarded a full membership license and will join the league’s roster of teams for the 2008 season.“Mindy is leading an impressive new ownership group that will be able to make great things happen for women’s football in Kansas City,” stated Kezia Disney, IWFL Chief Operating Officer.To learn more information on the Kansas City Tribe go to

While reading the Modesto Magic update, my mind side tracked slightly because I was worried about the switch board.  Sound Guy Brian was out sick today and the switch board shut down on me and I wasn’t sure if I would get back online fast enough to unmute our guest Athletic Trainer, James Mueller who was to speak on the subject of player injuries, causes and prevention.  Fortunetely Robin had her computer going and I was able to sign back on in the nick of time.  She still needed her computer to read about Molly Rogers who suffered a life changing injury, which she addressed as probably the worst football injury today for women’s tackle football.   Here is the write up from the Seattle Majestics website:

On June 18, 2005 our teammate and friend, Molly Rogers, suffered a life changing injury while playing this game we all love. She is the bravest, strongest, most positive person any of us have ever encountered and she now faces the challenge of adapting to life in a wheelchair.

With your donation we can help her pay for rising medical costs, home alterations, and all bills associated with her injury.

Everyone in the Seattle Majestics organization hopes you will donate anything you can to the “12 Fund.” Every cent counts and 100% of the money raised will go straight to the injured player.

I also wanted to re-emphasize that we will be sending out three of our WFB Talk crew to the NWFA Modesto Magic tryouts on Saturday, September 22.  Robin, Beebe and Nancy will be there interviewing the staff and prospective players to be used for a future show.  They will also be snapping photographs for a write-up on the blog.  

Modesto Magic Tryouts will be held on Saturday, September 22 at 9:30 am at John Thurman Field, 601 Neece Drive, Modesto, CA.  For more information contact or you can call 209-996-0997.

After the interview with Athletic Trainer, James Mueller we had two call in guests on the show from the WPFL (Women’s Professional Football League).  We had General Manager of the Minnesota Vixen, Teresa Tierney and WR/DB Minnesota Vixen Player Jodi Wallen on the show giving us insight and personal stories of player injuries.  We want to thank all our guest callers who took the time from their busy schedule to join us on the show today.  If you missed the show, you can go to website and either download the show or listen directly from the site.
