Listen to some profound words of truth and fairness by a VERY smart guy:
Anyone who knows me even slightly would know that I’d rather have four root canals than watch a professional football game all the way through (all four quarters). I have hated the fanaticism of football religion ever since I was a kid. And I do mean both “World” Football and American Football. But Super Bowl? It actually inspired me to work on the Sabbath just to separate myself from the television glued crowd. I consider Football worship to be one of the ultimate and worst forms of degenerate depravity in the service of the collapse of Western Civilization, and insult to Christianity, a glorification of money and sex and non-European peoples…. and this is just the beginning of what I think of Football and Super Bowl Sunday. I’d say that football is exactly one-notch up from pro-rape rap music.

Jeff Crow Wow! I take it u feel passionately about this topic. lol
I sort of hear ya on that…but remember, football was created by the opposite groups you’re upset about. And the greatest teams are still from the 70’s-90’s as are the greatest players. It’s th…See More

Charles Edward Lincoln I was a kid in the 1960s, becoming a teenager in the 1970s, in Dallas, and so I remember Tom Landry and the Dallas Cowboys very well. But I saw then what I see now: obsession with sports has replaced Church on Sunday (did you know that most Church services in the 16th-19th centuries began in the afternoon, and sometimes lasted three to four hours? The Germans were the ones who took it the farthest, preaching from 10-4….
Talk about a sacrilegious impossibility now… I feel like this is parallel to a discussion one might have about Neo-Con vs. Palaeoconservative Ideology. 1970s football of the era of Nixon and Kissinger and Reagan….being the Neocons…. Organized sports originated and developed almost simultaneously with Big Corporations in America and England.
The concept of team playing is psychologically consistent with corporate suppression of individual as opposed to group enterprise.
The first “teams” were rowing teams at Harvard and Yale in the 1840s. I confess I did some rowing in my Ivy years…. Good arm exercise, I miss it…
But PROFESSIONAL SPORTS didn’t really come into vogue until the late 19th Century—the Robber Baron Era—Fed by Government Contracts and Subsidies like gigantic land grants and resource “Concessions”…. monopolies in other words….
And professional football was a creature of the 1950s—the birth of television, the heyday of Madison Avenue advertising. The football franchises and leagues…. all creatures of the televised world, all intimately evolved with advertising and taking the minds and leisure hours away from thinking about God and positive politics or social conscience—Public Issues—Professional Sports are a creature of Consumerist Society—Re-read Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World….
Man…. I do feel passionately about this issue.
Sports ARE ten times the Opiate of the Masses—Religion inspires people (sometimes) to behave in a moral way and do very good things. Sports from the Golden Era of the 1970s-1990s you’re talking inspired O.J. Simpson to get an A-grade model beauty for his white wife and then kill her….. and get acquitted of murder on the criminal charges anyhow….
Professional Sports was part of the master plan to integrate society in the 1950s and break down the race barrier, to degrade women as mere sex objects (cheer leaders, “pseudo prostitutes” as Joss Whedon had one of his characters say in an early season of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” in the 1990s).
The salaries paid professional sports stars is one of the sources of false dreaming in the U.S.—- people want something for nothing, every guy wants to be a multi-millionaire football star, every girl wants to be a Kardashian hanging out with one….
So do you think I’m wrong about any of these perspectives? If so, tell me…

Jonathan Whiting Southern men would rather go home and watch a football game than work to regain our Soveriegnty from the U.S. Government. This is why we are not free.

Charles Edward Lincoln I tend to think that was the PURPOSE of football—Sundays used to be a day to reflect on right and wrong, on the difference between good and evil in private and public life. Now it’s a day for men to chug beer and wish they had million dollar salaries which require no thinking….and get them laid twenty times a day if they are so inclined…..
