    with the technology advancements now and into the future I can predict teams will be made up by the best minds to create teams like you would see in the  "Jetsons"         snark?  Maybe, maybe not, we'll see.

      It's a wild card for sure. I think technology is going to be introduced which gives the precise location of 'forward progress' on the field, and to determine helmet-to-helmet hits and thereby assess penalties. But then we can get into GATTACA territory with bionic enhancements and genetically engineered athletes. At that point, who the hell knows?

        ....is NFL teams would find some dirt poor family in the Caribbean and then basically buy a kid from conception, genetically modify him, and tie him to their team.

        Or at least, that's what happened in a book I read once! Some really interesting futurism in that series.
