Entire NFL season CANCELED over Alcohol Concerns
There will be no NFL games this season, due to officials’ growing concerns over consumption of alcohol among football fans in the stadiums and parking lots.
Alcohol is a powerful drug which lowers a person’s inhibitions and curtails judgment. This alcohol-induced uninhibited behavior leads to hundreds of thousands of assaults and accidents every year. In addition, the health hazards of alcohol include — but are not limited to — heart disease, ulcers, pancreatitis, liver failure and certain types of cancer.
The official press release reads in part:
“NFL organizers have worked with city officials to reduce health risks at these games, but in view of these occurrences, the safest course is to cancel the rest of the season.”
And NFL officials said in a statement:
“Because there is nothing more important to us than our patrons, we have decided in consultation with local officials that there will be no games this year.”
