Scant Evidence That Football’s Popularity is Declining

More football is coming. The football industry allegedly is facing diminishing interest from Americans because of a number of reasons. A President constantly carping about players kneeling during the national anthem presentation which combined with people’s disgust with players kneeling during the national anthem is leading to people turning away from the National Football League. There is also the concussion issue which is a bigger concern to the football industry than the anthem protests. Players starting on the local youth level through the NFL may be facing major health risks from brain injuries because of blows to the head. Making helmets safer is the hoped for solution but football remains a collision sport and there probably are not too many ways to make the game safer unless blocking and tackling are outlawed.
