Roy Terrell's Supercharged Entry in the AFL (Oct. 23) really hit the nail on the head.
San Diego has a football team, and we in Los Angeles (sob) have a thing called future draft choices, who can't run, pass or block any better than the bums they have now.
The horrible part is that it's going to get worse.

The letter from Dave Pearlman of White Bear, Minn. (19th HOLE, Oct. 16) really riled my southern composure with his statement that " America's best football is played outside of the South."

It's a lie.

As far as big Michigan teams go, I have seen southern high school teams that play a rougher game of football than they do—and I'm from Michigan.
Whoa, there, Roy Terrell. The "most famous college fight song ever written" (Hope Revives in South Bend, Oct. 9)? Did you ever hear a number called Boola Boola? Lord Geoffrey Amherst? Victors of Michigan? The Orange and the Black? Shall I go on?
It would be a blessing to the sports fan if there were only one (or even no) George Preston Marshall (All Alone by the Telephone, Oct. 16). Unfortunately, several like him come to mind. They all have one thing in common: they are much too busy counting the house to pay any attention to the quality of the merchandise.
