    If a girl can play football or wrestle, why not?

    Because boys have a penis and girls have a vagina

    Not good enough. The knife cuts both ways.

    In other words, everyone is equal. Some are just more equal than others.

    Uncomfortable imagery considering the subject matter.

    Ok, I'm too lazy to read the story, but this is not a new thing. It has happened in other sports as well.

    No, boys haven't faced the same limitations as girls in the past, but good luck figuring out a legal way to keep guys off the field when the only team available is for girls.

    I was covering a tournament game involving the team that eliminated Saugus. When the game was over, and somebody said that winning team was playing Saugus next, somebody said that the boy was the league's MVP and one of the officials said "That's all you need to know about whether or not he should be playing."
    So if he sucked nobody would have had a problem with him playing, I guess.
    Girls can play football and wrestle because they're not likely to be impact players on their teams. Boys can't play field hockey because they're likely to take over the game.
    If that argument is not a bunch of hypocritcal crap, I don't know what is.

    He should be mocked mercilessly not because he's playing a girl's sport but because field hockey sucks at a level that is incomprehensible to mere mortals.

    Seriously, I ran cross country and track so I know what I'm talking about when it comes to competing in easily mocked sports. And I'd mock this guy daily on general principle.
