Ugh, Football

Generally, I don't care for sports (I do like badminton, though). They're ok, they're just not my thing and I tend to have a difficult time understanding why people get so into them. Especially football.

Football is an okay sport. Yay, it's fun, blah blah blah, whatever. I don't care about it. I don't get why people get so into it. I don't get why schools give more of a shit about their football players than other students/extra-curriculars. I don't understand why guys sit around drinking beer and yelling at the tv and if their team loses, letting that ruin their day or sour their mood. It's weird, and it's quite frankly bullshit.

I probably wouldn't care so much except that football players get excused from so much shit. Like, have you seen some of the crap the guys in the NFL have been doing or getting busted for?
High school coaches try to protect their players from going to jail, even if they RAPED someone.
Matthew Barnett admitted to raping a 14-year-old girl.He admitted to it. On fucking camera. He and another boy recorded the rape and that of a 13-year-old girl.Why aren’t they in prison for sexual exploitation of a minor and production/possession of child pornography?Oh, right, because they’re popular football players and Matthew Barnett is related to a politician! Therefore, nothing they can do is wrong or bad and they should never face punishment and should instead be rewarded for raping young teenage girls and filming their assaults. -Source
Read the source article. That is bullshit. Why would you let someone get away with that just for being a football player? That guy is a fucking piece of shit and so are all the other teens in that town who were against Daisy for what happened to her.

Do people still remember what happened with Steubenville?
It still amazes me that after those guys were FINALLY arrested, the news could only talk about how sad it was that their sports careers were probably over instead of talking about how they committed a travesty on another person. I seriously wonder, if a high school football player committed murder, would the town still rally around them and protect their ass from getting thrown behind bars?

I just don't understand why someone should be excused for committing a crime just because they play football. Or any sport for that matter.
I don't particularly care for America in the first place, but the fact that so many rapists in this country get off scott-free is appalling and makes this country that much worse. It's a serious issue that should not be dismissed. In America or anywhere else.
