Of all the low forms of entertainment out there right now, the Lingerie Football League is at or near the bottom of that list. It is a sham of a league, designed to get perverted people to tune in and pay money to see scantily-clad women run around for no reason. 

That being said, the league has reached a new low with its reported recruitment of Paris Jackson, the 13-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson. 

According to TMZ.com, the league's commissioner, Mitchell Mortaza, thinks that she will be a great spokesperson for the LFL when she reaches 18 years old. 

In the letter, obtained by TMZ, LFL Commissioner Mitchell S. Mortaza acknowledges a "lack of options for competitive female football"...and says the league will "be introducing youth clinics across the country to introduce the game of football to young ladies at an earlier stage in life."

"We...would like to invite Paris to become the spokesperson for the LFL's youth program and perhaps start training for a future football career in the LFL when she reaches the age of 18."

The fact that Mortaza actually thinks that his league is breaking down barriers for women in football is disgusting in its own right. 

To try to brainwash Jackson's young mind, especially at this delicate time in her life, is even more disgusting and, quite frankly, embarrassing.

This league is borderline pornography, and this man is trying to recruit a 13-year-old girl to be a part of it. I am surprised he had enough sense to put in the part about her joining the league when she is 18. 

Mortaza's letter and recruitment of Jackson are grotesque, but I suppose when you are leading an organization known as the Lingerie Football League we shouldn't expect more. 

The ladies that do sign up to be a part of the Lingerie Football League have their own reasons for doing so, and who am I to tell them that it is wrong. But this, recruiting someone who just turned 13 six months ago, is wrong and should be grounds enough to shut this sham of a league down.
