Female kicker award disingenuous toward women, the game, and sports…..

From TMZ sports:

“Awesome honor for Sarah Fuller … the Vanderbilt kicker, who just became the 1st woman to ever compete for a Power 5 college football team, has now earned an SEC Player of the Week award.

The conference announced the selection Monday … splitting this week’s Special Teams Player of the Week honors between Fuller and Florida punt returner Kadarius Toney.

“Fuller made history Saturday,” SEC officials said in a statement.


My take is a little different:  this award is a total joke…..disrespectful toward women that actually do something that really impacts a game…..I actually would think she would turn down the award as of being such a non-worthy act for her, her team, college football and sports in general.  This sort of “honor” smells of what is totally disingenuous with our society today.  We have become such an awful America that we reward people for doing absolutely worthless things….and that in fact tells us that we are in need for being recognized over being relevant. So what she was a women that played in a game.  Are women that piss poor in athletic ability?  I say not.  Yes, she is the first female to play in a Power Five college game (but a girl at Colorado back in the day did kick an extra point).  It does not change the world.   All it did was get the head coach fired.  So sad.
