    That doesn't represent the appeal of football at all Ezra. We have cleverer things sitting in the comment spam filter.

    It's like the mirror opposite of "You don't like football? Faggot."

    Ezra, don't misunderstand me; I'm not one of those people who looks down on other people because they don't like the sport. I readily acknowledge it's not for everyone and it's silly to judge people for those reasons. I detest when people do it, and think it cheapens what I love about the sport.

    But this poem? This poem is about those people, and not the sport. If the author intended it to be about the sport, he is off the mark.

    Knowing Harold Pinter, he was probably intending this as a comment on American society and culture, as reflected through football, not so much about the game itself.
