Are the sports we love slowly dying?

Recommended Posts

For me, it's football and baseball.

Apparently, there are fewer and fewer people playing football every year. And baseball is at the point where they're instituting a "pitch clock" and trying out other gimmicky things to get fans more interested in the game (and to apparently draw new interest).

I mean, maybe I'm just "old" at almost 47, but there are those in the "younger" generation who think a 1-0 baseball game is "boring". Now, don't get me wrong, a 1-0 baseball gameĀ can indeed be boring. But ask yourself how many 1-0 baseball games you've watched were compelling. It's all about offense and "pace of play" now. And I think that's causing the slow death of baseball. MLB doesn't know what fans want, and apparently a lot of fans don't either.
