Money is a huge factor. Not only the players but the PR aspect. You can't have a player die on the field, it would obliterate market share. Furthermore, NFL athletes are literally gladiators. What other sports are there where you have guys who are 6'7" 250-350 pounds running into each other at 18mph?

Just wasted 10 minutes of my life watching Ind/Jax NFL game, boring as #...3 cigarette/chat with officials breaks in that short time.
Lame, tame, and lacking stamina compared to rugby...fat blokes jumping into each other then having a smoke break because it tired them out lol
