The Left's Pathetic Obsession With Football

Noah Rothman over at HotAir outlines what he feels is the Left's "War on Football."  Read it, it's good.  I don't disagree with much of it, although I think it's less of a "war" than a Gramscian march through the institutions.  The NFL, in my view, is succumbing to Conquest's Second Rule of Politics.
Any organization not explicitly right-wing sooner or later becomes left-wing.
One could argue that the Left really need do nothing, football will destroy itself ala Conquest.  Although one could also argue that football's demise is not meeting with the Left's preferred timetable and, alas, needs aggressive treatment. 

The Left, you see, has always been going after football.  Check out this recent cover of Time...

and check out this 1965 issue of Esquire

The Left's obsessions really are pathetic.

Aside...the cover headline reads "Heaven help him - he's about to play 60 minutes of pro ball."  Wait, I thought prayer and sports were to be unquestionably separated as an egregious affront to all that is decent...?  Not only are the Left's obsessions pathetic, but it's just too damn hard to keep up with their schtick.  (Truly it is.)
