As the football editor, I'm primarily responsible for all football related pieces that aren't day to day stuff. That's typically Ross's bag and Pat and Adam are more or less "columnists". As we're approaching football season and it's time for more serious stuff, YOU'RE STUCK WITH ME HOYA AND YOU'LL LIKE IT.

Whether or not I agree or disagree is irrelevant because I really don't give a shit how people spend their free time and money. The point is that blaming "cell phone culture" on declining attendance is a horrible argument.

What's with the generation of men who dictate all things blaming actual children and people who have little to no power for all of the world's ills?

It's worth pointing out that I never said he said any of that. I said that the type of people who invest in that type of attitude say the type of shit that Fitzgerald said. You can be mad about everyone being obsessed with their phones and letting life pass them by. That's fine. That's a fine take. To say that it's causing a decrease in college football attendance is a shit take and you're just projecting your inability to cope with a changing world on Millennials. That's the point of the article.
