American Football as We Know It… Are we “Losing It?”


While reading about the former Australian rugby player Hayden Smith's forthcoming NFL debut, I couldn't help but wonder if the same thing is happening in football that's happened with basketball already.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that there are way" more international players in the NBA than there used to be. 

And as the NFL continues it's initiative to expand to overseas, I can't help but wonder if the same thing is going to happen with NFL players.

I wonder if the already incredible odds for an American-born athlete to play in the NFL are going to diminish like they have for American-born basketball players. 

It's simple math.  The more international players on the team, the less American-born players are going to get an opportunity.  

It's that simple.

I think the already slim chances the average American-born player has of playing in the NFL are going to go down over time, as more and more countries learn and embrace American football.

I'm not saying that's a good or a bad thing, it's just merely an observation.

But what do you think about it, though?  Leave a comment below, or catch me on Twitter, and let's rap about it.  I love to talk!  

…like you didn't know that already.
