Steve & Keith are fresh from an opening night viewing of Straight Outta Compton. That movie may have generated memes, but the NFL generates headlines. Positive or negative, each play creates info-bursts that give its fans something to shout about football. Abomination: NFL doesn’t run well. Its fans light-heartedly laugh and cite the sport’s “fun” qualities when the game breaks, like when a referee collides with a coach on the sideline. Football’s arbitrariness, violence, and breakdowns occur because its rules require an extraordinary amount of force to change possession, unlike peaceful exchanges of possession in EVERY OTHER SPORT (and American government).
