A Satanist organization held a public event at the Civic Center Music Hall last month.

The LFL confirmed earlier this week that the league hoped to expand to Oklahoma City in time for the 2011 season, which would begin in August.

But the league does not have a local ownership group in place.

Lingerie Football League Chairman Mitchell Mortaza said it should be left up to potential fans to choose whether a franchise here would be successful.

“Oklahomans should be provided the opportunity to choose for themselves and not dictated to,” Mortaza said. “I thought our plans were for expansion into Oklahoma City, not North Korea.”

The LFL is playing this year with 10 teams, including teams in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Seattle.

The teams have suggestive names such as Bliss, Desire, Passion, Seduction and Temptation.

LFL games are played 7 on 7, with players dressed in hockey-style helmets, shoulder pads, elbow pads, bras, panties and garters.

Some of the league's games are televised on MTV2.
