It's not an article any football fan would neccessarily want to read, or a topic theyd want to be contemplating, but it's asking some pretty serious questions. Just putting it out there for ones that might want to read it.

Long ass article.

Dog fighting the dogs don't have a choice. They're forced to fight. Last time I checked football players have the choice to play or not.

Personally I think the dog fighting parallell attempt was the least thought provoking portion of the article and can be skipped without losing much.
