      A beer drinker doesn't quite understand touch football. Some people take themselves just a little too seriously.

      Why a book on 2,year-old principles of stoicism has spread through the NFL and the sports world. “It doesn’t matter how hard it is to be in the Super Bowl. It’s probably not harder than.   It's called a game for a reason. Because it is a game. Something that should not be taken seriously. It's just an entertainment, a distraction. It's not the meaning of life. Not even close. And yet, it seems like everything about it is taken seriously, people invest their emotions and money and lose their humanity and compassion all because of what? Sports? Many people are even willing to kill.

      This book is a bit of fun, but I get a dreadful feeling that there are cyclists out there who might take these 'rules', seriously. For some, this is a glossary of cycling snobbery, a 'style guide' for those without any sense of style and a source of ammunition put other, 'non-conformist' cyclists down/5. It also recommends that young athletes take a two- or three-month break from their primary sport each year. Steering clear of tyrannical coaches. Many coaches in children’s sports leagues are just parents with a passion. They’re usually well-meaning, but they don’t always have formal training in the sport or in dealing with kids.

Taking Sports Seriously took me a very long time to read. It is pages, but I enjoyed reading it so much that I wanted to take my time reading each chapter (besides Chapter 4) and actually reflect on many of Standen’s controversial statements. Reading the book made me reconsider many of my stances on various sports law related issues.

For Standen, the crux of mending the social ills of sport lies in taking sports seriously, rather than carelessly. He writes, “our carelessness about the rules of sport has yielded predictable results: our sports landscape is littered with problems, misbehaviors, bad incentives, misunderstandings.

The occasional Chiefs football game is okay, but nothing more. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying sports are stupid, they're not.

To David Goldblatt You seem to be saying that we must take sports seriously but you seem to forget that sport is being taken seriously a long time ago in several parts of the world, and I dare to say, even in England.

There are several academic publications on the issue, from several perspectives: sociology, management, pedagogy, etc, etc. In high school, I played sports year round, but a different sport each season. Fall was for tennis, winter swimming, and spring, lacrosse. The diversity kept us in check: Just as we got serious.
