Mary “Mea” Angelini, who made the cut for the Orlando Fantasy, the new expansion team for the Lingerie Football League, refused to sign the contract, citing concerns about low pay, personal injury, liabilities and heavy fines. The experience sent her back to flag football, her first love, and here’s what she's doing:“I am heading up the Orlando Woman's Flag Football League. This is a new league, and the only flag football league that allow contact, and its Central Florida's only all woman's flag football league. We are in need to get the word out about the league.” The six-game season begins noon-4 p.m. Nov. 14 at Blue Jacket Park (2501 General Reese Road, Winter Park). Get more info on the league at www.orlandoflag.com. As for hometown women's tackle teams, there’s only one more home game for Orlando Fantasy (the season consists of two home games and two away). They lost miserably to Tampa Breeze on the team’s first game, Sept. 24.
