the long term threat against the NFL is the numbers of liberal parents no longer letting their kids playing rough sports because they might get hurt.

This reduces the talent pool and eventually the quality of the game declines, etc etc etc.

The NFL finances are fine for now, although they have to address the politcal BS and other things, etc.

The talent drought will continue to hit them harder and harder over the next 20 or so years . . . .

But America's self image needs a macho sport to take its place.

What will that be? Soccer?

I think not . . . but if the demographic shift continues, maybe in 50 years . . . .?

Not sure why it took Americans so long to figure out the game is bad for your health...reminds me of when people all of a sudden realized how racist the Redskins name was.

I mean, come on, of all the Indian nicknames for teams, this one is actually the worst. But just because some idiot started whining, people all of a sudden realized how bad the name was.
