Say you had to stop a female football player from scoring a touchdown, would you have a problem with tackling her? Or would you be comfortable tackling her like any male player?

if she is on the field as a competitor, i have no problem taking her down. on the field of play we are all competitors and we have to play the game like we are capable, otherwise we are useless as players.

Of course not. All players are players and you tackle whomever has the ball.

No. The gear she would be wearing is there to protect her so I wouldn't change a thing. I know how to tackle too, all out full bore is not the way to do it. I played tackle or guard in HS, down in the trenches and I was quick, strong and hard to move. I'd have no issue blocking a girl on a line or smearing one that tried to sneak the ball past me.

I would try to keep my head and her head out of the impact. Using the helmet as a battering ram puts a low price on the contents.
