I would put it a bit more harshly than he did. I have always loathed American football.
First posted about a year ago when the frickin' New England team was then playing in that spectacle of depravity. I loathe American football. What I can add to this is that when I once watched a little bit of a football game I couldn't believe how stultifyingly boring it was. minutes of huddling and talking and setting up for a few seconds of violence, followed by more huddling and talking and setting up interrupted only by the referees trying to figure out what had happened and, sometimes, arguments with them by coaches and players and looking at videotape. By comparison baseball (of which I'm not a fan, either) is fast paced and stimulating. John Cleese in his comparison of real football, "soccer" and American football pointed out American football is so boring they have to have dancing girls on the sidelines to distract people from the boredom. I think that is why football surpassed baseball in popularity as people got stupider and more attention deficient from watching TV. And why "soccer" hasn't become as popular, you have to pay attention to what's happening. It's the depravity of decaying Rome in North America in the 21st century.
I'll add that since the asshole owner and that Brady guy and who knows how many of the brain-damaged millionaire players endorsed the treasonous Putin crime family asset, Trump, they should be sued for false advertising in calling their company "Patriots". They should be called the "Traitors."
