Are you ready for some FOOTBALL? the third part


From Treasure Chest Vol. 14, No. 5, November 6, 1958 (Pflaum Publishing)
Ok, this one just looks weird to me. Check out the guy on the cover... if I'm decoding this correctly, the football player is flinging himself on the ball when there's no threat to it at all around him! What enthusiasm! What spirit! What determination! What gives? Is he trying to impress the Coach over there on the bench? And what's with the kid in the red sweater standing on the bench beside Coach? Is that Football Player's parole officer? I'm confused. The composition of this cover is making my head hurt. I'll bet if I cut out the figures on the cover I could arrange them in at least ten better ways... yeesh.

And, doesn't it look like they edited out a cigarette from Coach's hand? That sure is a weird way to hold your arm unless you got a cigarette hanging between your fingers...

Referee: "DELAY OF GAME, SENSELESSLY ATTACKING PIGSKIN TO IMPRESS COACH, TEN YARDS!"

Shouldn't that be "Iggles"?
