    I just don't see the point of a line of oafish brutes running into each other to get at an oblong ball so that they can run with it over a line. We're obviously not talking about sensible adults here. I suppose it's just some kind of testosterone war that only males would come up with.

    Prelude, there is no more 'ritual combat' to prove ourselves. (not that most, some of us feel we have to) Experiments show that Mudskippers (a form of semi amphibious fish) that is the most reckless in the face of preditors gets the most 'girl guppies'. Hence we males have football to show how stupid we can be.

    We all know the rules and can so can establish a pecking order. Also allows us to divide into 'tribes' .

    This pretty much sums it up. Though I personally don't want a stupid man to father my children, that would be an insult to them.

    Off topic:
    To try to 'balance' the male stupidity bit

    Walk into any shopping mall. Count the number of mens clothing stores and compare to womens clothing stores.

    Do this in shoe stores if you realy want a scare.

    Is shopping the female equivalent of a 'contact' sport?
