The end of football #wilfare

Tyler Cowan and Kevin Grier @ Grantland: CTE, the concussion crisis, and an economic look at the end of football: “The NFL is done for the year, but it is not pure fantasy to suggest that it may be done for good in the not-too-distant future. How might such a doomsday scenario play out and what would be the economic and social consequences?”

The end of football (like the functional end of Boxing we have seen in the past decade) makes a new Vikings stadium look less worthwhile.
