Ridiculous point

Let's be real: Anyone who can study a playbook can study a textbook. Americans didn't get to the moon on a quarterback sneak

It still remains a mystery if they had actually landed on the Moon then. And, it is not even important. You reach to the Moon, to Mercury, Mars or Pluto -- how it is fucking help anyone. There is a lot more to an average sportsman than an average educated man. That education would not have covered those things which would have helped them become a good human. It would have taught something which would help people make something which would in turn help then make money -- which is of no use if you can not be fair. Discriminate people from what they eat, their colour, religious background, sexual orientation, country, and the damn list continues. All those people protesting against immigration, LGBT rights, abortion..., what was the use of education if all you wanted to do is obey the Bible (which says "If a man find a damsel a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.") What is the use if they make no use of their free will for thinking? While sportsman, many of which did not have a pampered childhood, had to come up with a lot of struggles and hard work are able to see past these biased judgments.

Are you criticizing the choice of phrase, or the policy (no pass no play)?

If that quote explains why the policy was introduced, it is just not correct.
