An AL.com story has been corrected and the website has issued an apology after receiving complaints about the lead paragraph in a story about a football seminar geared toward women, according to Yahoo Sports.



The site reports the original opening paragraph, published Tuesday morning, read “Football can be a confusing and often vexing concept, especially for women.”

The sentence was edited on Tuesday afternoon to remove the final three words of the sentence and an apology was issued, Yahoo Sports reports.
