Okay, good! Finally! Tell us you hate football because it turns the brains of young men into mush. THAT’S a valid reason.
Heretofore, Mallett’s odd displays of disdain for the game and its fans have struck me as peevish and highly personalized. And I’ve always thought it nervy that he’d tell tens of millions of Americans that the game they love is, and I quote, “a waste of time.”
Until now, he hasn’t said all that much about the why. (To tell ya the truth, I’d always imagined it was because, as a freshman, a bunch of varsity players had taped him up and locked him in a locker before practice.). At least now he’s explained himself a little.
