What are these guys like Owens trying to do, kill football? One of the biggest myths in America is the idea that sports build character. Nothing is farther from the truth, except for the third and fourth stringers. The stars are petted and pampered, they and their families bribed with favors and jobs. It begins in about the sixth or seventh grade. To paraphrase a popular country/western song, "Mothers, don't let your sons grow up to be athletes."
