J.A. Adande's column of Oct. 2 is a shining example of the sad state of sports and sportswriting today. The putdown is more important than the touchdown. Winning isn't fulfilling unless you belittle the loser. The games themselves aren't entertaining without the arrogant sophomoric antics.
I, for one, am sick of it. I'm not looking for role models, simply for a few decent human beings. There's something called sportsmanship, and there's something called class.
