Will American Football cease to exist in 50 years?

The brain damage issue is indisputable an existential threat to not only the NFL, but all forms of American football. Very sad. Can advances in technology possibly blunt the damage caused to the brain from impacts on the field enough to save this sport?

It's not going anywhere.

​I think it will be fine provided a solution to the concussion problem is found. Would you allow your children to play football knowing it can very likely damage their brains? As this issue becomes more widely publicized and more thoroughly researched, a solution must present itself for the sport to retain its dominant position in American culture.

Arguably the same thing could be said about boxing, however that once "dead" sport has been brought back
in the states now that the Republican party is in power. Likewise the matter of injuries in football will
most likely become a non-issue once again.

Although it might be a good idea to stop playing the national anthem at football games.
Because it overly politicizes the sport and generates conflict among sports fans that while good for news ratings
it is not so good for the popularity of the sport itself. Such political conflict reduces the overall enjoyment of the sport.

People said the same thing about boxing. It is still going strong. And now there is Mixed Martial Arts. I don't think football is going anywhere. Supposedly, rugby is worse than football. And they still play that.
