Selfishness is the seed that manifests into the root of all that is called evil

While this may be superficially seen as a diatribe on the ins and out of a violent sport called American Football, there is always more to be discovered if one refrains from jumping to conclusions and skins a little deeper.

Only an out of control mule has to be physically restrained by his assistant to remind him not to call time out since it would be ill advised to do so late in the game when trying to run out the clock against your opponent.

Only a mule would fail to instruct one of his mules not to run out of bounds to stop the clock late in the game when running out the clock dramatically increases the odds towards victory.

Only a mule would not figure out that half of offensive game plans are trickery not by trick plays but by misdirection plays and misdirection tactics such as passing out of running formations and running out of passing formations and running and passing to daylight by misdirection and basically being unpredictable in order to confuse the defense since your team is not gifted enough to bludgeon them with their physical prowess.

Not always running on second down after a failed 1st down throw and not always running when near your goal line and the opponent's.

Only a mule would play conservatively the whole game and then go for risky 4th down plays with the lead late in the game.

Only a mule would keep repeating the same failed game plans and questioning criticism of a Hall of Fame Quarterback and following his own Hall of self diluted thinking.

Only a mule would prevent his quarterback from letting it rip no matter what may happen in order to prevent soul killing displays of offensive futility such as were on display against one of the most inept teams in the league.

Some QB's are allowed the freedom to throw as they may please which some time leads into throws into double and triple coverage and yet there is one QB who commits a sin when he attempts to run out of his red-lines-all-across prison box that his mule of a coach has created for him.

Only a mule would keep drafting the most physically gifted mental midgets to mirror his Napoleonic stature and only a mule would ignore warnings to improve his weakest links 1) That being his offensive line 2) the intellectual capacity of his players who constantly commit the most undisciplined penalties as a display of their feeble minds' lack of self control over their own bodies let alone their opponents.

Like attracts like even among mules.

Only a mule would not figure out how disrespected his passing attack is when everybody he plays against crowds the line of scrimmage and plays press coverage 100% of the time.

Only a selfish (selfishness is the number one form of Godlessness) mule would overpay for a lineman whose greatest claim to fame is the level of his glutenous appetite, constantly tearing his own body parts in a seemingly annual celebration of defiling his temple with a voracious body destroying dietary intake.

Only a mule would keep hiring players that have run out of locations to place physical markings to desecrate the temple of the eternal spirit that manifested everything.

Only a mule would allow his players to prematurely celebrate the simple achievement of a first down or a good tackle as a sign of their hollow accomplishment, only to constantly fail to score or stop a time killing opponent drive that may end up in a score that kills the soul before the body.

And only a mule such as myself would continue to waste his time following such a disgusting display of futile selfishness while attempting to reach the mules that he watches toiling in futility and finally reaping what they sow: a calamitous Whirlwind.

Selfishness is more dangerous than standing armies and more heinous than the love of money that is the root of all evil. Selfishness is the seed out of which the root of all evil grows.

For selfishness in a world of selfishness rewards itself with the ultimate form of selfishness: the destruction of everything around it including itself in its effort to save itself and appease itself at the expense of everything else.

In a closed system such as Planet Earth, selfishness is akin to a slow but sure suicide of the species.

In its own eyes, selfishness never errs but is always erred against.
In its own heart, selfishness is hurt but never the one that hurts.
In the fullness of its pride, selfishness is an empty vessel.
Selfishness anoints itself savior of itself at the expense of everything other than itself which is suicidal in a closed system.

Selfishness is the choice that creates Evil where Evil did not exist for Evil is the manifestation of the overwhelming accumulation of the selfishness of an individual or a collective.
