Women's league no threat to uptight NFL

The National Women's Football League is a copyrighted logo. I do understand the NFL's responsibility to uphold its name, but it is getting a bit uptight ["Women's league under fire," July 22].

The NFL should be cooperative with the NWFL. I do know the WNBA is sponsored by the NBA and that makes them affiliated. That gave a boost with the women fans of the NBA and also for women's rights. The NFL should make this opportunity to help with women.

These women are not guaranteed a paycheck for playing in this tackling football league. This is all for the love of the game. This is no XFL, but a 2-year-old league with more than 25 teams starting next year.

Maybe the NWFL will join with the NFL and this whole problem will fade behind us. Women should have a right to go full force. For the love of the game, NFL should only hope to help the women.
