Used to be that the NFL was sponsored by trucks, beer, and tools. Now it's brought to you by The Hobbit.

Over-extrapolating just a tiny bit, this change reflects the US economy pretty well.  The middle class folks that used to watch the NFL are now replaced by a technology-powered workforce that's, not surprisingly, a bit geekier than it used to be.

Our economy is geeking our money.
