What it's like to play on the Seattle Majestics, the women's tackle football team

Jeannie Yandel speaks with two members of the undefeated women’s tackle football team the Seattle Majestics. Elisha Edlen and Mackenzie Tolliver discuss the difficulties in playing and promoting football for women while being overshadowed by the Seahawks (and the local lingerie football league). They also talk about how far the sport has come in recent years and encouraging signs that more and more women are learning that they too can play tackle football.
