Default Best way to describe the NFL?

I'm going to go with its Judge Judy but with a little athleticism.

Football is a land acquisition game that's a metaphor for war.

Just ask Kellen Winslow Jr.

This from baseball fan and right wing curmudgeon George Will

On Super Bowl Sunday, ABC’s George Will called football a “mistake” on the “This Week” roundtable.

“This is the second-highest calorie day in American life, second only to Thanksgiving, and people are betting and eating,” Will said. “Football, as I say, combines violence punctuated by committee meetings called huddles. It just replicates the worst aspect of American life.”

“That said, when it’s over, pitchers and catchers report in two weeks, and we can go back to reading the newspapers,” Will added.

I'm hereby starting a committee to murder George Will. Plenty of food and beverages will be provided.

That's the type of dude you don't want in your foxhole.

First Sergeant would be taking his gun away and getting him orders to a padded room in the top floor.

It's George Will. His career seems to be based on phrasing wrong ideas in the most vitriolic language he can muster. If you've watched him on the Sunday news shows, you'll know what I mean.
