About Thefootballgirl.com

TheFootballGirl.com, named by Forbes.com as one of the 100 websites for women, is a lively NFL community catering to sophisticated female fans.

With national news, analysis, fantasy, unique and irreverent features, Football 101, exclusive player interviews and so much more, we offer everything any football fan could want. TFG is not exclusionary, and thus we welcome male fans as well. After all, why shield our content from over 50% of the fan base? However, we do have several elements that are more female-friendly, including our signature Featured Football Girl series, where we profile prominent women under the NFL’s vast umbrella. But overall TFG caters to everyone, from those new to the game to those who came out of the womb wearing their favorite team’s onesie.

Poke around. If you are an NFL fan, we promise you’ll find something to like.

TFG was founded in late 2009 by former Emmy-Award winning ESPN producer Melissa Jacobs. Jacobs brings to TFG a rich passion for the NFL and the experience to tap into a variety of angles and sources.
