Commentary: The Future of Football In Question
For the first time, I seriously wonder about the future of football. There have been suggestions from outside the game, and a few from inside, that the sport is proving to be too dangerous, participation will slowly erode, interest will wane, and the game eventually will fade away. Given the current state of football, it's incredible popularity, and hundred billion dollar finances, I have, until now, dismissed that argument without much consideration of its merits.
