I do agree that it's by no means "amateur" football, just a level substantially below that of the NFL.
You're right. Warner was in Arena League, which I always considered a notch below the CFL. Not sure if that's accurate, but that's always the way I looked at it.

The gap between football and every other sport in America is growing, not shrinking. So, to answer your question, unless football is outlawed due to head injuries, I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Basketball is not close... It's probably not even second (that would be baseball).
