Jockstrap rant

Well regardless of whether or not you trust FT the size of pro football players has increased A LOT - by about 100 lbs over the history of pro football http://www.businessinsider.com/nfl-50s-tim-tebo... I'm sure some of the increase is due to better nutrition and weight training, as well as an increasingly greater likely hood that extraordinarily large and strong men would choose pro football as a profession. But I tend to think that unless PED rules are strictly enforced and there is a lot of random testing there will be a lot of PED use in any sport for which there is a high premium for extreme size and strength. I would bet that at some point in the next couple of decades all of a sudden someone will "discover" that more than half of the players in the NFL are using PED's and the sports world will be "shocked" the same way they were shocked when they found out so many MLB players were using PED's.

What about that Spanos money?

According to a recent article http://www.cnbc.com/id/101664459#. London has 72 Billionaires (and that's a billion POUNDS not billion dollars) - more than any other city in the world. The NFL is already the #1 sport in the US by most measures so they don't have that much room to expand. But the NFL does want to expand internationally. Personally, I would think expanding internationally into Canada and South America would make more sense because you don't have the difficult time zone shift. But the NFL has had increasing number of games played in London - so I think they are serious about expanding there.
