Meaningless fights

Jackie Mason in "The Spectator" (subscription required) reflects on why Jews don''t kill over cartoons: 

I never saw a Jew going into meaningless fights. That is why you seldom see Jewish football players. A Jew is not going to take a chance in spraining his neck or tearing a ligament in his knee just because he was fighting with somebody about catching a ball. He would rather go to a store and buy another ball and avoid the whole problem. That is why there are also no Jewish hockey players. Hockey players spend all their time hitting each other in the mouth with sticks. When Jews saw how Gentiles played hockey, that is how Jews found out that instead of becoming hockey players they would become dentists, and that way they decided to let other people play the game while they found a way to make a profit from it...

Did you ever hear anybody say, ‘Don’t go into that neighbourhood, it is very dangerous, there are a lot of Jews there’?

Perhaps he's talking about American football. Not that that is real football.

"That is why you seldom see Jewish football players" Does he not know the east London team Wingate FC http://www.wingatefc.com/ Their ground is in North London well but I remember them well as a teenager. And the great Mark Lazarus who played for Leyton Orient at the beginning and end of his career, when he wasn't making pop records that is. He was a character whose name I still see around on his haulage vans. George Cohen of the 1966 World Cup squad, and his nephew Ben of England rugby are descended from a Jewish family. George never got quite the fuss that the West Ham 3 did in 1966. He better not say such a thing in front of the fans of Maccabi Tel Aviv FC either.
