The NFL

Good article about Computers in the NFL | Gadgetopia — there is a lot of science involved in the game. Also a great pullout section in yesterday’s WSJ on the state of the NFL — why it has been successful to date (versus the other pro leagues) and the upcoming economic stresses on the league. Wish I could link to it but it is behind the WSJ sub wall. Worth reading if you can get your hands on it tho, there is a point of view that the days of revenue-sharing are ending, and the league faces the risk of becoming more like MLB or the NBA.
