Have the use of war metaphors gone too far? More specifically, does it matter? that is, do these metaphors really influence how people think and act about movies, sports, politics and "real" wars?

    Duplicate post.

    I've heard the "football is metaphor for war" opinion since at least 1975. It's not a brand new idea. I'm sure there are umpteen other connections like this that can be made.

    Please post what YOU THINK.
