Both the NY Times and the NY Post carried articles about the forfeiture of a football game today by the California University of Pennsylvania because five of their players were arrested for beating and then stomping a 30-year-old man outside a restaurant near campus. The man was left with severe brain injuries and is in the intensive care unit of Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh.
The NY Times actually ran the mug shots of the five players, surprisingly enough:
As the five players ran off and got into their car after stomping their victim, they chanted, "Football strong!"
How exactly does a five-on-one beating prove machismo, or constitute grounds for pride, or in any way establish the superiority of football?
If anyone can explain this to me, please do; I'm at a complete loss.
