Watching Football on TV Teaches Children to Kill

As you sit around the television in the living room with your children watching the annual Super Bowl, the violent tackles and hits that are inserted into your family's brains create a standard on how to live life. In a recent interview with Kerry Charles, a citizen in the USA, he says that "kids that see violence on TV will end up in a total of one more fist fight in their life than the kid who watches Spongebob." This means that when our eyes are filled with body-on-body blowouts, we fall asleep thinking about them and wake up wanting to hit someone. "The way our brains work," as Doctor Ben Dale says, "is that our minds think about what we see the most, and in response our bodies crave to do what we see." How does tackling apply to killing? A tackle leads to a punch, which leads to a kick, then a body slam, then a bullet, and finally a machine gun, just like the accurate Direct TV commercials. Even in a game where there are no violent hits or concussions, the simple act of slamming a football on the ground as a celebration creates a despicable scene for the viewers to see. When asked about the celebration, Demetrius Castillo said, "the act that I saw on TV made me go outside in my garage and hit the wall, because I didn't know any better." The NFL and NCAA are brainwashing America into a destructive generation, and in turn, the generation coming next will grow up fighting each other starting at a young age. Many innocent but brainwashed children will die fighting, all thanks to the "entertainment" of football. Boxing, on the other hand, is a perfect competition that children can view in order to learn how to take on the obstacles of life.
