Regarding the Feb. 3 Sports article “Reign in Seattle”:

Since the disclosures about the damage done by head injuries in football, some of which have affected my family and friends, I have wished nothing but ill will for the NFL, a dangerous cultural icon harkening to the days of the Roman forums. On Sunday I got my wish. What could be more ­off-putting than a 43-8 wipeout? Those second-half sponsors must be angry.
