KANSAS CITY, Mo. The 2011 NFL Season is up in the air. Football fans can check some gird-iron girls if they're missing the KC Chiefs. The Full Tackle Women's League started the season on Saturday night.

You can expect to see its popularity rise. Kansas City has two women's team which shows there is definitely a market for the sport. The women who play say they mean business on the field and they're a lot like any other athlete.

The female players say don't underestimate them.They wear full pads while making big tackles and hard hits.

"I had little brothers growing up, and always wanted to rough and tumble with them," said football player Mindy White. "I grew up on a farm, very much tomboy and this is a life long dream."

White is a linebacker for the KC Tribe. They're the 2009 Women's Football Alliance World Champion.

"I'm also an attorney, a go getter," White said. "I'm extremely aggressive."

White says she gets mixed reaction when telling people she plays pro football. The attorney and linebacker says she hears odd comments when people see what comes with the sport.

"I have a bruise on my arm the size of a softball," she said. "I've been in the courtroom before and the judge brought me up to the pulpit and was like,' ma'am what's going on here'?"

The KC Tribe played KC's newest women's team The Spartans on Saturday. The league's success is seen by the lines of people that pay $6 a pop to watch the action. The Tribe says they average 1,000 fans at their home games.

" I see it growing," said Spartan's coach Leonard Buock. "It started with two teams, 10 years ago, and now there are 64 in this league."

These teams say anyone skeptical of the sport and women knocking heads should come out and see it for themselves.

There are eight games in a season and there are 60 or more teams around the country that are part of the the league.

One of my childhood friends plays for the tribe. Some scary looking "women" on that team. It ain't the lingerie bowl, that's for sure.
