I thought this article was an interesting take on the possible affects of the concussion lawsuits that are currently taking place and how the eventual awards could be the unraveling of the NFL in our lifetime.
Do you think it could happen? What would be the replacement for the NFL?
I think soccer could begin to take the main stage in the USA if the NFL product began to degrade due to loss of amazing athletes, sponsors, and competition. With the popularity of soccer throughout the world, if the NFL and college football were to fade away I think soccer would be the type of active sport that wouldn't risk being shut down due to brain injuries and your favorite players seem to be able to play forever.
It sort of becomes a toppling domino if you remove the NFL and college football, all of the big impact sports will start to fall after that; rugby, hockey, maybe even MMA.
What are your thoughts on all this?
