    I'm a Democrat - I believe that government has a positive role to play in the lives of ordinary people.

      What credentials is he bringing to the discussion?

      Will he admit that his industry alone hurts and maims thousands each year?
      Dying to Play
      Will he admit that his industry reinforces violence in this society? Skewing the bizarre reality we exist in where a "foot"-"ball" player is paid more than our teachers.

      Will he admit that because of his industry we don't have the resources to pay for our roads, infrastructure, etc? Costs us thousands in lost tax revenues because of "special deals" many cities feel forced into to"keep" those teams there? Only to use up any "extra revenues" on policing, enforcement & prosecution of the riff-raff that gets attracted to said events?

      Will he admit any of these things?

      Will he discuss the national tragedy & shame his industry brings to us all by instilling in our children that if you are mean & tough & violent in sports, you can make millions!!!!!!!

      If not, then I really don't want to listen to his hypocrisy!

      IN fact, I blame him & his industry for the violence in our society!!!!!!!!
