Dropping a biblical analogy here - sry!!
But being a football player is like being a Christian “Sola Scriptura” … both will suffer pain in life no matter what…
As a Christian one suffer by default due to their faith… we also self inflict suffering by not following Christ as we should: Hence suffering will happen no matter what so “accept life for what it is”
Players suffer by default just by playing the game and the relentless pounding… and then they also suffer because other go out of their way to hurt them while playing… Swift is accepting that fact - that he will sooner or later suffer by default for just being a player or by it being inflected by another in the field in purpose…,
I’m not watching the play but if it was blantant them fine h if not ok what … it happens sadly
