    In discussing the Chris Borland issue he said football will be gone in twenty years, Robin disagreed. Discuss......

    MarksFriggin:
    Robin started her news talking about an NFL player who walked away from the game last season worrying about the long lasting effects of concussions. Robin said he was a rookie. Robin said that he took it seriously and wanted to think about his life instead of the NFL. Robin had some audio of him talking about that. Howard said he's very smart. He said he thinks that football is going to be dead in 20 years or so. Robin said she thinks it's human nature to want to mix it up like that. Howard said he doesn't think parents are going to want it for their kids. T

    The NFL generated 9 billion dollars in 2014. It is projected that the NFL will earn 25 billion annually by 2027. It is fair to say there will be some interest in keeping it around. Howard of all people should understand how a marble grab works.

    without question, it would be a big loss

    There are plenty of other sports (like boxing) where people get hit harder with less protection, football will never be abolished. Howard's just pissed because he had to change his Super Bowl party to a B-Day Bash because the NFL didn't want to be associated with him

    he might be right

    would someone from 1955 believe you if you told them baseball wouldn't always be the king of the hill?

    well, theres a difference from being "Gone" and not being the #1 sport anymore.
    maybe UFC will be #1 in 20 years. who knows.

    Yee of little faith laugh, but I'm predicting that badminton will replace football; that Ted Cruz will be elected President; and that Beth O will be the primary anchor for a rejuvenated NBC Nightly News.

    With billions generated by the NFL annually, there is plenty of interest in advancements of protective gear. Helmets are now tested by auto racing engineers with some prototypes possibly lowering concussion rates by 75 percent. http://www.cbssports.com/collegefoo...ineer-takes-a-crack-at-safer-football-helmets

    Good football is already gone. Watching middle aged insurance salesmen stop the game every three plays for crap is already here.

    Yeah it's gained popularity every year so far, but will somehow "be gone in 20 years".

    Does Stern ever say anything relevant?

    Technology, testing and compensation will all advance, the game isn't going anywhere.
