Professional football is the most popular spectator sport in America, which is one reason the Super Bowl is expected to draw 110 million viewers. With its famous athletes, storied franchises and lucrative TV contracts, it's an industry whose future appears limitless.But football has a problem: the specter of mass brain damage among current and former players. So far, the steady trickle of disturbing revelations has had no apparent effect on ticket sales or TV ratings. What it has done, though, is more ominous: It has invited lawsuits. If football falls into decline, it may not be the result of fans...
NFL will only be in trouble if former players try to make this issue a gravy train. Many jobs that pay far less money cause as much physical damage IE Military, Police, Firefighters, Coal miners, foundry workers, etc. All jobs [life] pose so risk of physical damage but pro athletes are well paid and they play the game voluntarily.
