I fell in love with football when Lynn Swann was running for passes not political office.
My struggle with this sport is the violence. The legal hit to LeSean Jackson was frightening to watch. The kid was out cold for two minutes. Not good.
Maybe I am paying more attention, but it seems to getting worse.
Unlike the other sports, the NFL has a short season. Eighteen weeks. Weddings, parties and even funerals are planned around a favorite team.
Many fans, like me rarely go to the game, but game is a backdrop to my fall activities. Even in my Mom's dementia altered mind, she is still appalled about a Christmas dinner scheduled around an Eagles games. Dessert was served during the game.
If all of the football fans voted with the same passion our Congress would look much different.
The players are bigger, faster, stronger.
Cris Carter recommended a bigger field which will slow the game.
It's a start.
OR, fans like me stop supporting it...
