Good, ending the worship of barbarism and injury is long overdue in this society, as is the paying of city budgets worth of money to people for playing a child’s game. It needs to be cut way back and eventually eliminated at the university level as well. Seriously, why waste four hours any day watching such nonsense? I used to do it (attended a major football university) and I finally realized just how ridiculous it was. The Romans had bread and circuses to distract the masses; that is what the uber-wealthy are using football for today.
