FF killed the NFL

Kraft did.

He placed the Commissioner.

He has levied influence and power to have rules changed to suit the strengths of his team.

FFB simply gave people a new entry point to the game, but gambling and rotisserie sports have been around forever.

I actually think Bill Polian changed the pattern of how games were called. After the playoff game where Ty Law picked off Manning several times with aggressive play, he made sure the five yard chuck rule was enforced.

 

Fantasy football influenced the now passing NFL that we have. Its all about the scoring, just like the NBA and the three point shot.

Actually, the pass-happy league we see today is a direct result of the over-protection of the QB (Brady), the inability to be physical when covering receivers (Pats, Colts), and constant holding by OLs (Pats). 

The rules were changed to favor certain owners and their gripes. FFB was always popular regardless of tawdry stats. Smart phones just made it more pervasive. Like gambling, people would do it regardless of how the games went. 

You’re not assigning blame to the right causes. You’re assigning it to a perceived beneficiary.
