Thank you for an insight into an excellent offensive lineman.
It is my opinion that Dobler should hang up his fangs and retire.
I thoroughly enjoyed Daphne Hurford's article. What pro football needs is more Conrad Doblers.
Your cover picture, headline and article about Conrad Dobler left me terribly disappointed about your editorial judgment. Why even mention a person who believes "rules are made to be broken"?
It is this ethic that has degraded pro hockey to the level of alley brawling on ice skates. With this kind of publicity, you encourage the same kind of hooliganism in pro football.

What a magnificent and fitting close to your British Open story (A Braw Brawl For Tom and Jack, July 18).
This match of the ages linked with the past and played in the present captured the antiquity, the timelessness of golf, and displayed the drama and tension always inherent in this greatest of games.
I am sure that all golfers, fans and followers of this match must sense that a phantom inscription is now on the Turnberry stone.
I submit it includes the names of Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus, as well as their chronicler Dan Jenkins.
