Regarding your recent article proclaiming football is a dying sport (TNT, 4-28):

Obviously the author has no idea what football is like in the South. From Texas to Florida, people take their football as seriously as their Bibles and their Tabasco sauce! From Friday night lights to all the colleges and universities that depend on football for most of their annual income. There will be generation upon generation of athletes willing to, wanting to and talented enough to play professional football.

No sir, football isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. However, I do see a lot more padding in the future. Picture a bunch of guys dressed up like the Michelin man!
