A Scrimmage for the Record Books

24 Mar

When I received this information today, our friend Jamie Flynt stated, ” Should be one for the records with former Nashville Dream and former Renegade players on each side of the ball…”

She was referring to the very two teams that were the start of the NWFA.

The Renegades were one of the founding teams of the National Women’s Football Association (NWFA) back in the fall of 2000.

The Renegades and the Nashville Dream played a six game exhibition season to determine the viability of a women’s full -contact football league.

The exhibition games were a huge success and the league expanded to 12 teams in its first full season of play in the spring of 2001.

(Note:  The NWFA dissolved after the 2008 Season)

About this weekend (Saturday, March 28)

From the Clarksville Fox website:

The Independent Women’s Football League’s Division and Conference Champions, the Clarksville Fox, will take on the TN Valley Tigers in a pre-season game March 28th at Northwest High School located at 800 Lafayette Road in Clarksville, TN.

Gates will open at 6:00 PM with a kick off time of 7:00 PM. Come early and enjoy BBQ’s and tailgating in the parking lot, but remember no alcohol is allowed on school premises.

Concessions will be available at the game, inflatable bouncers for the kids to play on, a Fox merchandise booth, the team’s mascot “Trixy” enjoying the evening with the children young and old, and women playing full contact football.

Tickets are only $5.00 each with children 10 and under admitted FREE.

There will be a donation jug out for those wanting to donate funds for the team’s 3rd annual community Easter Egg Hunt April 11th at Northwest High School hosted by the Clarksville Fox and Xtreme Ministries.

When, If and Who will be back?

11 Mar

WFB Talk has been taking some time off from our regular Sunday show broadcast.  We have been on-the-air since August 21, 2007 promoting women’s football.  Our mission, to Educate, Promote and Advance Women’s Tackle Football.   

During the last few months we were working on promoting girl’s flag in the high schools, particularly in the Las Vegas area with a campaign that we undertook to contact all the teams in both women’s tackle football leagues.   Unfortunetly the response was not what we had anticipated, but there were positives from it. 

As for a return date?  No date has yet been set, but it is under discussion.

Girl’s Flag Football Campaign “KICK OFF”

21 Jan

This Sunday will be “KICK OFF” for the Girl’s Flag Football Donation Campaign.

Ten young women were chosen to establish girls flag football in the high schools.

The crew at WFB Talk pledged to take part by contacting EVERY Women’s Tackle Football team to donate at least $25 to the cause.  Our outlook is very promising for teams showing support.

(Excerpt taken from Girl’s Flag Football Campaign Soon Underway:)

While speaking with Brenda Johnson, who is in charge of project operations in the Las Vegas area,  she informed us that there was no funding available this year.

What teams may not realize, the interest for women to play tackle football is declining year after year because there is no type of feeder program.

If flag football were in the high schools, more young women would be aware and the athleticism would be greater for fielding a team.  This would also bring awareness to the community that women play tackle football.

The money donated will help provide the necessary equipment  for the 2009 season (36 schools in the district), which will begin in March.

Love Media Group will be setting up an account to take donations.  Once this has been established, we will be contacting each team.

Tune in this Sunday 3pm(PST) / 6pm(EST) at WFB Talk to hear more details.

“We as women, we as football players need to take that first step into action to support women in sports.”

Christmas Present Soon to Get

20 Dec

I just bought a present to myself.  I ordered Merle Exit’s Book, Whirl with Merle -It’s a Humorous Life.

I gave Merle a call today, but I believe she is on another press trip so I left her a voice message, to include that her last show left me hungry.  Be sure to check out her BlogTalkRadio show, Whirl with Merle, where she discusses everything under the sun to include dining, travel and products.

Not only is Merle a special friend to us, we spent last year with her on her birthday.  We also went on a press trip in Long Island where she was reviewing the resturant Prime, a five star restaurant, which we were given five star treatment.  Nancy and I will be returning to New York again on Merle’s birthday this year.

Of course we will also again go to a New York Sharks game, where she is the Publicist for the team.  Last year we attended the New York Sharks verse the DC Divas.  We also got the opportunity to attend the New England Intensity verse the Manchester Freedom while in the area.

merles-book

Looking through the table of contents I noticed Merle had actually included me in one of her chapters (Chapter 17: From Merle’s Whirls to Whirl with Merle) entitled, The Coletta Encouragement.

When I saw that, I said that’s me.  I was honored to be part in her book.

Merry Christmas Boo, From WFB Talk

7 Dec

Today on WFB Talk we had guest Boo in LA. As you know, Boo has the Unofficial Guide to Women’s Tackle Football that used to be on the AOL Homepage web site. Since the shutting down of all AOL Homepage web sites, Boo had to find a new home. She chose the Google sites.

On the show, Robin stated the web site address at least three times http://sites.google.com/site/booinla, which is too much alphabet for me….lol.

Boo, the crew at WFB Talk would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and to thank you for ALL your contributions to Women’s Football throughout the years and for being a very special guest on our show many times.

If you haven’t already book marked Boo’s web site yet, you can now easily reach her by typing in www.booinla.com.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, Boo!

Day Spent with the King’s

Nancy and I drove to Fresno this afternoon and met Jeff and Lisa King of the Women’s Football Alliance.  This was our first meeting, but we were no strangers to one another.   If you recall, Jeff was on our show on August 3, CLICK HERE to listen (Another League?).

Today we enjoyed lunch and talked a little business for the 2009 season.  After lunch we stood for a photo shoot outside the parking lot.
