[NFL] Terry Bradshaw says football on the decline

»www.nytimes.com/2012/06/21/sport ··· &ei=5065

Terry Bradshaw said he believed that concern over head injuries would cause football to be eclipsed in popularity by soccer and other sports within 10 years.

Jay Coakley, a sports sociologist at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, said: “Football is really on the verge of a turning point here. We may see it in 15 years in pretty much the same place as boxing or ultimate fighting.”

Is the NFL inexorably on the decline?

Seems like it is the most popular sport in America to me. Everyone and their grandma has something to say about a local team or a team they like.

What I mean is football is vastly popular because there is just 1 game a week for a team. The locals at work, church, bar, etc will talk about that one game coming up or just passed. Casual sport fans can easily follow it and ESPN covers football more than any other sport. Even now in the off season NFL gets more news than the NHL did during their playoff run. I'm a big NBA fan and local papers barely have anything in the paper about the Finals. Just an article by the associated press. They probably have an article just as long about the Eagles OTA's. Football is by far the most popular sport and it is not declining.
