    Why do you hate football so much? I love watching NFL games. Why do you want to abolish a sport that many people like?

      given the resources and scholarships it eats up at all but a handful of the top schools that actually make a profit on it.

      Pay attention.
      Unless your school is BCS-quality, football is a money loser.  It's a major inequality issue.  At UIUC, my alma mater, Title IX equality was achieved by dropping scholarships for 9 other men's sports so they could preserve the entire football scholarship program.  (men's diving, men's volleyball, men's hockey etc)
      Football is sacred.  Title IX was an excuse.
