Football And Homelessness

How is football and homelessness the same? too many arm-chair quarterbacks. 

It is easy for a person sitting in the comfort of their living room to judge the actions of the players on tv. The problem for the arm-chair quarterback is that he/she is not privy to everything that is actually going on in the game – what all the conditions are, all the considerations that have to be made by the people in the game.   People react to homelessness the same way.  From the comfort of their homes, people judge the homeless without really knowing anything about homelessness.

Solutions exist for most of the problems of homelessness, but people will never know of them if they never get involved. And no, “getting rid” of homeless people isn’t a solution, and neither are all the other “ideas” that arm-chair quarterbacks come up with. There are solutions out there that truly benefit everyone. But, those solutions are not going to implement themselves.
