Salon writer to debate ‘NFL’s toxic lies’ with nonexistent Rep. Steven Smith

Salon (the real one, not the parody) decided to troll America today with an article by Steve Almond entitled, “The NFL’s toxic lies: Here are the worst excuses fans use to justify watching football.” Almond, proprietor of againstfootball.org, proposed to examine why millions of fans choose to justify to themselves why they watch “a violent, commercialized sport that we now know can cause brain damage.”

The piece was fair game for the usual dose of Salon ridicule.

Things got interesting, though, when “Mitch Johnson,” chief of staff for the nonexistent Rep. Steve Smith of Georgia’s nonexistent 15th congressional district, called out Almond.
