So I know that I'm British and have really no place to bring this up, but I saw this article online about the future of American Football (or as I like to call it, Rugby for Wimps), and I was wondering; what's your opinions on this, Sinfesters?

i think the u.s. is finally going to join the world in playing soccer. you don't get the head injuries, which are the real horror-story of football players. more and more kids grow up playing soccer, rather than football, and an increasing portion of the US is immigrants who are coming here loving soccer, and raising their kids to love soccer. and the u.s. is finally playing in international leagues and even winning, and we do love winners. (i can't read your article because it does this weird thing where the letters all get really huge and turn the screen black).

More game breaks for commercials until nobody can stand to watch on TV anymore. Given the expense and inconvenience of live tickets, the NFL goes into a slow but steady decline as they rabidly try to make up for lost eyeballs with more ads in a death spiral of Internet proportions.

I was reading this last week. If nothing else it's a fantastically weird and great piece of writing. Mix of sci-fi and sports. Deffo worth keeping up with, and I'm grateful you linked it as after reading the first couple of pieces I lost the link.

*edit*

Actually, I read the first couple of parts on my phone; seeing it on a proper screen it's even weirder than I recalled. I certainly didn't realise there were embedded YouTube links. "Wolferine, what a dickhead."

It was pretty good, yeah. I didn't finish it, though.
