If the NFL continues to woosiefy the game, perhaps a Rollerball league can succeed... (that’s a ref. to the old James Caan movie “Rollerball”)
Rollerball can’t be done. The writer wouln’t sell the rights to it even with plenty of people ready to finance it. Author said it was too violent.
The movie company did a Rollerball exhibition with their stunt men at the time they were shooting in Germany. Almost twice the capacity of the venue came to see it.
