Imagine this scenario: A quarterback tries to spot an open receiver. He looks around but cannot find one. Then, a bright spot appears in his computerized helmet visor marking a place on the field. The quarterback throws the ball towards the spot without thinking much. The receiver appears at the spot the moment then the ball reaches it...So all of the players' movements are synchronized and directed by computers and computer algorithms, and maybe sometimes coaches (can humans be trusted?)

It is not too far future... The technology is already here... Will you like the sport of football then?
