Re: What Would the End of Football Look Like?
“I entertain a private suspicion that physical sports were much more really effective and beneficent when they were not taken quite so seriously. One of the first essentials of sport being healthy is that it should be delightful; it is rapidly becoming a false religion with austerities and prostrations.” - G.K. Chesterton
As much as I love sports, he's right on the money. I invest too much time into sports that it pretty much has become a religion. Remove Football, then there will always be something else that we will worship.
"Football is a hard game. These spread coaches forget that. Until good defenses remind them." Gene Stallings
