The big issue was that extracurricular activities were becoming more important than school and an easy target to make a point of was Odessa. So Perot went on ABC's "Nightline" and said Permian fans were "football crazy" he went on to point out that a $5.6 million dollar football stadium had been built in Odessa in 1982. The Permian fans were obviously very upset about this. They were upset because he made them look like a bunch of hicks and idiots for building a stadium that they were all very very proud of. In return, Perot received nearly a thousand letters from very angry fans.
