"How ethical it is to support football since it is a sport that 'wreaks devastation on brains and condemns many players to diminished brain functioning, premature dementia, and the like.' ... Instead of asking if supporting football is moral or not I believe we should be asking ourselves as players, coaches, and fans how can we use the gifts, talents and abilities God has given us to create a culture in sports where we demonstrate the spirit of God and work for his glory."
