I had to pass along this article in Grantland by Tyler Cowen and Kevin Grier. The link to the article itself is here.

The article discusses how (American) football could disappear. It engages in a ton of speculation, and is not necessarily likely to occur, but their reasoning is fairly solid. Definitely worth a read.

The best thing about the article is that it challenges us to get beyond the status quo bias – i.e. what is, is what always will be.
