American football demonstrates a hegemonic masculinity and the media tends to emphasis that idea. In a greater scale, the media associates sports with men due to its aggressive nature. Women who try to change that perception tend to be given negative media depiction or none at all.

Pedersen, and "ESPN 's SportsCenter and Coverage of Women 's Athletics: 'It 's a Boy 's Club '" by Terry Adams.

These sports should enhance the sportsman spirit in children and must be beneficial for their mental and physical health.
