Quotations About / On: FOOTBALL
Saiom Shriver
Football remains a blood sport in which the players are collateral damage for the owners, the advertisers, the networks, the alcohol industry, the ticket buyers and the tv audience. They are gladiators sacrificed for the amusement of the cash carrying fans. Football has been correlated to military aggression and war. Studies have indicated a relationship between football and domestic violence.
George F Will

Darwin Henry Beuning
Football was once America's game, now it is 'America's Shame'
George Santayana

Fran Lebowitz

Archibald MacLeish

Bill Cosby
When the child is twelve, your wife buys her a splendidly silly article of clothing called a training bra. To train what? I never had a training jock. And believe me, when I played football, I could have used a training jock more than any twelve-year-old needs a training bra.
Lewis H Lapham
A society that presumes a norm of violence and celebrates aggression, whether in the subway, on the football field, or in the conduct of its business, cannot help making celebrities of the people who would destroy it.
Frank Zappa
You can't be a Real Country unless you have A BEER and an airline—it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a BEER.
Edward Kofi Louis
Kick on life like a football with the muse of the laws; under the works of righteousness. By Edward Kofi Louis.
