hey there sports fans! so many timelines involving the USA being more interested in sports like soccer and rugby have almost the same POD: American football being banned by teddy Roosevelt in 1903. while it's all fun and dandy, not to mention very cliche...this time, let's ask ourselves the question for real! now, as many hardcore American sports fan know, IRL, teddy only forced rule changes to make the sport safer after his son suffered serious injuries during a game. ...but what if the worst possible outcome happens, and teddy's son dies along with more players, which forces Congress and teddy to ban American football? which sport do you think will take its place as America's #1 sport? would soccer and rugby rise to fill the spot, especially rugby? would baseball have stayed no.1? or would basketball take over instead? how about ice hockey? and even more niche sports like handball, futsal, field hockey, lacrosse and volleyball? can these sports somehow manage to establish themselves in the land of the free and the home of the brave now that gridiron is gone? what would the landscape of college sports be like? let's share our opinions on this question!
