Was Ruben Lenten, a few years ago. He is fine. Or at least as fine as he has ever been.

90%+ of the kiters just mow the lawn, sorry, with football you at least get some excercise.

Watch US girls' soccer - they do great and walk tall. No drama, just badass players.

They're fairly different sports to compare really, football as a team sport is fine, well, "ok" I could never actually play it, or worse sit down and watch it.
