    If people had an ounce of interest in politics for every pound they have in football, all of our political problems would be solved.

    Screw politics and football both.

    Actually, football isn't so bad.. to play at least.

    I think people talk about politics too much actually. Or should I say they whine about politics. It seems to be a passtime for whiny people, be it liberal or conservative.

    But I digress.

    As a keen observer of both, I find that football and politics have demonstrated equal success in solving society's problems. But only football produces a winner.

    After a careful review of Grey Cup stats, I've come to the conclusion that the game is mostly played by losers

    I have no interest in watching men or watching men with men who like to watch men man.
    Football has a severe lack of boobs.

    So football... like soccer?

    American football is really lame in my opinion. Dudes in tight pants throwing some eye-shaped object around. I don't understand the whole interest in the Superbowl and such.

    I can watch soccer though.
    I tune into men's FIFA because there are quite a bit of... ahem... attractive men.

    I mean the sport is interesting... yes.

    Women's football is so bad that its desecration of beauty extends to the obliteration of the players' own attractiveness.

    There are a few good players, though. For some reason, the goalkeeping is atrocious.

    Of any world where promises were kept,
    Or one could weep because another wept.

    Boofheads

    I discovered the other day that the Taliban banned music and football.

    And although I read the newspaper every day, I read every part except the sports' pages. So it would appear I am uncomfortably close to the Taliban.

    So naturally I try to rationalise and defend my aversion to football.

    So I played amateur football as school but when I left, I discovered other things.

    And today I recognise footballers are professional athletes in a lucrative business.

    So why do I dislike football today?

    It is obvious to me that football is repetitive, one game after another after another. And as any repetition will induce a trance, football induces the football trance.

    And it is a powerful trance shared by millions across the globe.

    The Taliban don't like football because they want to induce the trance of Islam and the trance of football is a competitor to be ruthlessly removed. Yes, the Taliban are simply jealous of football. My God, say the Taliban, is a jealous God.

    So am I, like the Taliban, jealous of football? And I think the answer is yes. I am jealous of the enormous resources devoted to the business of football. I feel sanguine about amateur football, but professional football takes up too much space and too many resources.

    I confess I am a member of my local football club, the Eastlakes Football Club, but whenever I enter their premises, devoted to drinking, gambling with huge TV screens on the walls, I mutter to myself that it is a club for boofheads.
