KSK – Patty Sexton, a Council Rock School District board member and Philadelphia public school teacher, voiced her opposition of school funding for football programs, which she called wrong given the risk of long-term effects for those who suffer concussions. “It’s no longer appropriate for public institutions to fund gladiators,” she said. “I am very, very concerned about putting these student-athletes in the position of getting a concussion. Football has gotten faster, harder and more dangerous with each passing year. I’m extremely scared we will eventually be sued over injuries suffered in sports.”
Patty Sexton (haha…sex) — you should be ashamed. First off that’s 100% a fat lady name. No chance in the world a woman named ‘Patty Sexton’ is sub-200. Just sayin’. But, yes, you should be ashamed of yourself. Not on the basis wanting to end football because it causes brain injuries, no. But because you want to end football because it causes the LAWSUITS that come with brain injuries.
Maybe if you had any semblance of concern for the well-being of the thousands of still-developing and impressionable young minds that collide into each other every Friday on the football field instead of for the security of your benefits package you wouldn’t come off as such a fun-hating curmudgeon bitch — but sadly that’s not the case. You and your fat name are only about the dollar, not about the kids or the sport. If America didn’t have teenagers getting concussions playing football, who would nerds try to impress at the 10 year reunion? Who would knock up our nations horny cheerleaders? What would happen to our “dumb jock” stereotype? I don’t know about you Patty but I’m too old to start learning new ways to be prejudiced against football players.
Besides — football players aren’t gladiators. Gladiators have names like Turbo and Nitro and roll around in giant steel cage balls trying to keep dudes with mullets from impressing their kids on basic cable. The difference seems pretty obvious to me.
