Football is "Hot"

I typed the phrase “football hot” into Google Image Search because I was looking for pictures of football players’ asses in those tight pants for a piece I am eventually going to write about homoeroticism in sports. I expected to find, at the very least, pictures of hot men in football uniforms, or variations on the theme. That is not what popped up.
I got a picture of some hot sauce with a football team’s logo on the front (get it? “Hot”? “Football”?):

I got this “hot” guy:

And that was it. Every other picture that popped up for the Google Image Search of “football hot” involved women in various states of undress wearing/handling various things associated with football. Why is it only women who are objectified here? Why could I not find (at least easily, anyway) pictures of hot men posing in football uniforms and standing in positions that made their ass look nice? Or men wearing football pads with no shirt? Why could I not find any hot men being objectified in relation to the sport of football at all?
Here are the images that I found, and this was just the first page of the image search (some pictures relate to “American football” while others relate to football as the rest of the world plays it): 

Yeah, the girls are hot (in a stereotypical kind of way), but I can’t be the only one that finds this blatant objectification pretty nauseating, especially considering the fact that I couldn’t find the same sort of objectification applied to men. And men are the people who play the damn sport (well, American football, anyway).

    I'm a fan of the soccer line up picture :)

    Who is the gayest? Me, of course.

    I mean, I am too (especially the second to last girl, she looks like she's actually having fun), it's just that it's so very objectify-y. Blurgh.

    Now that I'm looking at it on a larger scale…

    is it the same girl over and over?

    I only noticed this because I was like "damn, they really didn't put any saucy brunettes in this pic?"…

    Of course there are no saucy brunettes in the picture. Blonde is the ideal, remember? Us brunettes are always relegated to the smart, plain friend role.

    I, personally, think brunettes are way better than blondes, of course. Blondes are ordinary looking and cliche.

    Though, I love my redheads, too. Where you at, Molls?
