Lee, please don't speak for everyone, when you claim that football symbolizes your soul. It is, indeed, boring - a bunch of grown men trying to knock each other down like bowling pins. They can only make one play at a time without stopping to figure out what to do next; when given a generous time allotment, they can't manage to finish on time.

They don't get paid for "historic acts of sportsmanship", they get paid to WIN. When it's time to determine which teams go to the playoffs (big bucks), wins and losses are the only considerations - sportsmanship won't matter. Have you seen a trophy for "they didn't win, but they were great guys!"?
