    Ducks have enough sense to fly away when they hear shots.

    Fine time for this strip to come up, as the NFL had about 60 injuries last week :(

    Not too crazy about this sport. I keep reading about players needing surgery and stuff.

    I’ve never played football nor hunted ducks*.

    *Not even deer or elk or whatever else that requires a hunting rifle.

    “four downs to get back on the field”. or, you could just switch to Calvinball.

    Getting plowed by the defense is pretty offensive.

    I remember seeing football on the tube as a small child. It seemed to be toss the ball, everybody runs and then jumps in a dog-pile. The whistle blows, everyone gets up. Repeat.

    Even though this takes place in 1990 this shows how much more violent society has become. When I was in school in the 60s we weren’t allowed to play tackle or contact football until high school. We as 8-year-olds could play tag football, where we stuck little cloth tags or flags as they were called into our waist pants, hanging out about a foot, and the opposing team could grab it and thus achieve a ‘tackle’. Saved the little kids from getting injured like broken bones. Come to think of it no kid ever took a gun to school and started shooting either. Gentler times.

    I never played organized football, but I think I can sympathize with a receiver who just caught a punt.

    I was leaving a casino in Atlantic City when a busload of senior citizens (all women seemingly) pulled up and discharged its passengers – I was between a bunch of grandmas and their favorite slot machines. All I saw was a gray-haired mass of humanity coming my way. I was surprised how fast someone with a walker can move.

    Football is kids’ stuff. Now Rollerball, with all games using the rules of the championship game, … now that’s a real man’s game.

    Ducks might think hunting was a sport if they could shoot back. Deer might agree.

    The “sport” in duck hunting is shooting them only in flight. Of course hiding in a blind, using a duck call, and using powerful shotguns with a wide pattern shots sort of diminishes the sporting aspect a bit, IMO.

    I never got into the game of football. To me it always seemed to be a misers game. The one team gives the ref a quarter to toss and then both teams spend the entire game trying to get the quarter back. that’s not even 3 cents per player.

    Bill Watterson’s artwork is my main reason for reading C & H daily. Also, great imagination.

    I lost all interest in football on my first day of high school gym class. I caught a pass, and was promptly tackled by about half a ton of dumb jocks.

    Why does Calvin let Hobbes — a figment of his imagination, after all — beat him?

    The grin on Hobbes should be enough of a warning to Calvin to run the other way.

    This is the same kid who gets tackled at the front door after school right? So what was he thinking here? Even Charlie Brown would know better.
