Economists Tyler Cowen and Kevin Grier, writing for Grantland back in February:
This slow death march could easily take 10 to 15 years. Imaginethe timeline. A couple more college players — or worse, highschoolers — commit suicide with autopsies showing CTE. A jurymakes a huge award of $20 million to a family. A class-action suitshapes up with real legs, the NFL keeps changing its rules, but itturns out that less than concussion levels of constant headcontact still produce CTE. Technological solutions (new helmets,pads) are tried and they fail to solve the problem. Soon highschools decide it isn’t worth it. The Ivy League quits football,then California shuts down its participation, busting up thePac-12. Then the Big Ten calls it quits, followed by the EastCoast schools. Now it’s mainly a regional sport in the southeastand Texas/Oklahoma. The socioeconomic picture of a football playerbecomes more homogeneous: poor, weak home life, poorly educated.Ford and Chevy pull their advertising, as does IBM and eventuallythe beer companies.
I think the only way the game survives, long-term, is if the rules change dramatically to something like flag football — to a sport that resembles basketball in terms of athleticism, pace of play, and violence. Me? I think I might enjoy watching such a football very much. But I don’t think most NFL fans would. Too many NFL fans are in it for the violent hits, not despite them.?
Kunur Patel, reporting for Ad Age:
Now, with a direct-sales force that’s been on the ground for awhole eight weeks, Draw Something is inserting advertisers’ paidterms into the game for players to literally draw brands.
Here’s how the game works: Pick a word from a list of three, thencreate a drawing so a Facebook friend can guess that word and youcan win points. For the ad product, imagine inserting words like“Doritos” or “Coca-Cola” in among “golfer,” “bikini” or“fireworks.”
Amazon has never released Kindle sales data, but Paulo Santos makes a case that sales have plunged — both for the e-ink models and the Fire:
To put it short. The Kindle eReader has dropped out of bed. It hasfallen beyond the wildest dreams of Amazon.com’s management. Theynever told it to the market, but this is reality. I have proof,and the proof is undeniable. The drop in Kindle eReader sales camewith the introduction of the Kindle Fire, and the cannibalizationhas been nothing short of stunning, massive. Why do I say this?Well, Amazon.com has slowed down its demand for Kindle eReadere-ink screens to near zero since December 2011, the month afterthe Kindle Fire was introduced. Basically at that point Amazon.comhad enough Kindle eReaders’ screens on hand to fill demand for atleast 4 months straight.
Sadly relevant New Yorker piece by Malcolm Gladwell from 2009. I don’t think football as we know it is going to be around much longer.?
Kevin J. O’Brien, reporting for the NYT:
European privacy regulators said Wednesday that they wereconsidering reopening their inquiries into Google?s collection ofpersonal e-mails and Web searches for its Street View service.
