American football could fall like the gladiators of ancient Rome

After Christianity killed off gladiatorial combat, Roman fans switched to chariot racing, “which flourished massively as a result,” Heather said. The ascent of the blood-soaked culture of the UFC demonstrates that Americans’ thirst for violence has far from disappeared, but rather migrated to a new Coliseum next door.

Personally, I can “tolerate” American football. The athletes are well compensated for the risks they take. I can’t “tolerate” the fans who think that they are “participating”. “Our” team doesn’t win; the owners, networks, and to a certain extent the players “win”. I can’t get too upset when my beloved Jints play badly. Or too elated when they play well. I am just the couch potatoe watching from the peanut gallery.

I understand that boxing has morphed into MMA. And ever women are getting in the act.

To me, that’s revolting.

Two men or women beating the <synonym for excrement> out of each other is NOT my idea of entertainment.

I do object to the wussification of men, and to a certain extent women, in today’s society. Colleges with their “safe zones” and political correctness are a symptom of what’s wrong.

I saw it on Facebook in a nut shell:
