There are bigger issues in sports

Dear Editor, So Jason Stuart got his say on the injustice the NFL cannot right in regards to a certain football team. SO WHAT? There is a much bigger injustice to be concerned about. Such as millionare athletes protesting racism and social injustice, whilst collectively being the biggest group of law-breakers, spouse abusers and rapists outside of congress. All while being adored and supported by their loyal fans, who will be spending a lot of time scrutinizing every play in great detail on company time. This is the greatest injustice of all. While these fans and faux sportsmen are rehashing entire seasons, the jobs they are supposed to be performing, and are getting paid to do, are getting done poorly, if at all. Look around, they are not hard to spot, and are everywhere. Employees, nationwide, squandering billions of dollars worth of labor, on a game whos outcome actually means little. Repercussions for such waste are rare, another injustice in itself. The worst thing being that ALL of us pay for this waste, not just the employers of the wastefull. So be grateful, Jason, you got an audience, a free pass and your paycheck. Sincerely,

George J. Kolling
