is no longer America's pastime--strikes and lock outs, combined
with dynasty power houses, allowed the NFL and it's hard salary
cap created parity, fast action, and violent hits to take over.
it isn't just the NFL, either--as more and more high school basketball
players continue to screw up the NBA rather than developing in
college, college football is growing in popularity too. Now if
only they could fix the BCS.
the Arena Football League has survived, despite some struggles,
and has had some limited partnerships with the NFL.
