Age and Football

I've noted before how the NFL and football in general has been doing it's darnedest to bring in other demographics because of it's fear of it's current viewers...dieing. However I've begun to suspect that it's not that the audience for the NFL is growing older, but that their natural constituency is older and that there's just more old people around now-a-days to watch football. Anyway these PA comics confirm my suspicion:
