Is It Wrong to Watch Football?

    We know you're a creep -- and probably fat -- if you decided to look at the nude celebrity photos that leaked this week.

    But, is it unethical to watch the NFL? Chuck Klosterman tackles the subject:

    I’ve recently begun to question my support for the N.F.L. I suspect that the recent discoveries about concussions and the prevalence of early-onset dementia among players are just the tip of the iceberg. Is it unethical to support a league that seems to know it is detrimental to the health of its participants? And if so, what should my response be? Don’t go to games? Don’t buy merchandise? Don’t watch on television? Start actively opposing the N.F.L.? Write letters?

    Doesn't sound right.

    What if nude photos of DiCaprio or Gosling were jacked and posted online and women all over the world clicked to ogle them? What would those women be called vis-a-vis "creep"?

    On a weekly basis, the supermarket tabloids run pictures of celebrities and their toddlers/children.... While the celebs are going to the market, playing at the park, getting a Starbucks drink.

    How fucking creepy is that, that housefraus (and god knows who else) are poring over pictures of these celebrities' toddlers?

    Is Chuck Klosterman the dolt who has ruined more than one 30 for 30?

    Yeah. He's like if Ethan Hawke's character in Reality Bites actually existed.

    Very popular though among the navel-gazing millennial crowd.

    Klosterman is a hipster douche.

    But he's an expert on Bo Jackson because he used to play Techmo Bowl.
