What Makes NFL Football So Great? Socialism

This short animation from graphic artist Fraser Davidson uses a section from Bill Maher’s recently released audiobook The New New Rules to illustrate how the NFL redistributes wealth from successful franchises to less successful ones. A sport that has a governing body which splits revenue equally among the 32 franchises is America’s most successful television spectacle. Around 100 million people will watch the Superbowl live on February 5th this year – that’s 40 million more than go to church on Christmas day.
