I have been a lifelong football fan since the 1960s.

Last year I quit. The reasons are too numerous to lay out in detail but a short list is:

  1. Concussions
  2. Quality of Play
  3. Rules Changes/Referee-ing (its hard to separate the two)
  4. Roger Goodell
  5. Deflate-gate

Good ridence. I don’t miss it.
