Some thoughts to ponder this upcoming football season

I don’t spend a lot of time getting articles from ESPN, however, this one showed up and I gotta’ say it’s one of the better ones on football I’ve read. Touching upon the very serious issues present in this game, and yet trying to hold on to what we have as an image of the game, it does a nice job of balancing these two, if not opposite, at least powerful forces. In the end, one is left trying to come up with an answer with a clear delineation of the subjects at hand.

I always have been a fan of the essay, and this is a very well crafted example of why.
