What football is

Football is entertainment, nothing more. The players represent no city or group of people. They represent only themselves. Whatever they may say about the quality of where they're living, throw them more money and they'll leave.
Each game is like a movie. No, two movies. The coaches are the directors, the players the cast. Both teams are trying to make a better movie than their opposing team. The plot is always the same: My people can get this object past your cast more often than your people can get this object past mine. 
The plot is binary and dull. It's not even good versus evil. It's pretend good versus evil. 
And it does much more harm than good for the great majority of those who play it.
Football includes occasional jolts of garish sexual imagery to increase the spike in testosterone levels.
