An Orem woman is working on a Web site for ladies who want to know what the difference is between a play-action and a flea-flicker. It's all about football.

Noelle Bates loves to watch football on the weekend, but she says too many woman who want to understand the game don't because their husband is so into the game, he doesn't do a good job explaining what's happening.

"You have to have a man who's really diligent if you're ever really gonna get it," she said.

So she started a Web site called "First and Girl." It has football player profiles and she's building a training camp section where ladies and men can learn about chop blocks and the west coast offense. "It's not really something you can pick up just watching it," she said.

Bates hopes to have the online training camp completed in the next few months.
