Is The Super Bowl Successful Because The NFL Is Socialist? [Video]

As American football fans look forward to the ultimate game of the season (NY Giants versus New England Patriots at the Super Bowl), Fraser Davidson brings to life a recording of Bill Maher’s reading of a passage from his recently published book “The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody But Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass
In an ‘infographic’ style, the video visualizes Maher’s look at the economics of the NFL. The author and TV show host says that while US politicians may be waving the term ‘socialism’ as something to fear, football appears to be so successful and popular because the game redistributes financial wealth and other advantages to the poorer teams.
Fraser Davidson, who is a London-based freelance Motion Graphic Designer, says that the video was not created with permission from Bill Maher and is intended only as an homage to the author and his essay “Irritable Bowl Syndrome.”
