Again, this year, a record amount of people watched the Super Bowl – Neilsen Co. estimated that this year 111.3 million people. The records have been surpassed each of the last three years. That’s what makes it so inconceivable that in 10 to 15 years the Super Bowl and NFL football as we know it could be gone.
The greatest threat to the NFL’s hegemony of the sports landscape is likely not the NBA, the NHL, Major League Baseball, Tennis or Major League Soccer. The threat comes from the long-term health impact of the repeated concussions that occur to players at every level of the game. While the culture of football from high-school to college to the NFL has changed with regards to player health and concussions, little is known medically regarding the long term effects of even a single concussion on a developing mind. If you or a relative has suffered from the lingering brain damage in Nevada due to post concussion symptoms that occurred while playing high school, college or pro football, contact Benson and Bingham for a free legal consultation today.
As more is learned about the long term effects of concussions, more and more parents could not elect to let their pre-teen or high school aged boys to play the game. As fewer and fewer boys play, it may lead to less talent graduating to professional football, thus reducing the talent pool entering the game . Other hindrances to young people playing football could be insurance related. As the cost of insuring high school players and programs rise, fewer will be offered reducing the talent pool to the league even farther.
