Florida's Lingerie Bowl canceled

TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 26 (UPI) -- The Lingerie Football League says Saturday's Lingerie Bowl VI has been canceled because the players don't want to play at the Caliente nudist resort in Florida.

The game was initially supposed to take place in a vacant lot in West Tampa, Fla., but neighbors objected and Tampa City Council members said the league's paperwork wasn't in order, The St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times reported.

League leadership then decided to have Saturday's game -- which was to be taped and aired as a pay-per-view special during the Super Bowl halftime -- at Caliente. However, some players balked at the idea of playing in the nude or in front of naked people, the newspaper said.

"The league will not place our fans, players, staff nor partners in a less then comfortable environment that would ultimately jeopardize the mainstream perception and reputation of the brand that so many have worked diligently over these past five years to build," league spokesman Stephon McMillen told the newspaper.
