I concur with the views of my good friend Jonathan Young ’69 regarding football (Inbox, Feb. 12). Perhaps PAW could do a piece on the brain damage and other debilitating injuries that result from this brutal sport, and advocate instead for sports practiced at such institutions as Oxford and Cambridge and in the Olympics.

Editor’s note: A story about efforts to protect the health and safety of football players was included in PAW’s Oct. 23 issue and is available online at http://bit.ly/PAWfootball150
