--Noam Chomsky

"The addiction to sports, therefore, in a peculiar degree marks an arrested development in man's moral nature."
--Thorstein Veblen

"A few sports foster a culture of violence. Such a misguided culture too often spills over into barbaric acts in and out of competition...
The 'trample the opponent' philosophy espoused by some coaches and parents sends the wrong message about the core value of empathy."
--Dan Doyle

"Competition brings out the best in products and the worst in people."
--David Sarnoff
