Mark Cuban: "The NFL is 10 years away from an implosion."

http://espn.go.com/dallas/nba/story/...away-implosion

Quote:
Cuban: With TV deal, NFL is 'hoggy'
By Tim MacMahon | ESPNDallas.com


DALLAS - Mark Cuban, the outspoken Dallas Mavericks owner, predicts a drastic decline in the popularity of the NFL over the next decade due to the league's greed.

"I think the NFL is 10 years away from an implosion," Cuban said Sunday evening when his pregame conversation with reporters, which covered a broad range of topics, swayed toward football. "I'm just telling you, pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. And they're getting hoggy. Just watch. Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. When you try to take it too far, people turn the other way.

"I'm just telling you, when you've got a good thing and you get greedy, it always, always, always, always, always turns on you. That's rule number one of business."

Cuban is specifically referring to the NFL expanding their television package. He considers it a poor business decision for the NFL, which consistently dominates TV ratings, to play games on days other than Sunday and Monday.

In February, the NFL announced a one-year deal with CBS and NFL Network partnering to televise Thursday night games. CBS, which won the bidding for the Thursday night package over NBC, ABC, Fox and Turner, will air the games during the first eight weeks of the season, simulcasting them with the NFL Network. The league's cable network will exclusively show six Thursday night games later in the season with CBS' top announcing tandem of Jim Nantz and Phil Simms in the booth. The NFL Network will also have a Saturday doubleheader in Week 16.

The NFL started a limited package of Thursday night games in 2006. The NFL Network showed 13 Thursday night games last season.

"They're trying to take over every night of TV," Cuban said. "Initially, it'll be, 'Yeah, they're the biggest-rating thing that there is.' OK, Thursday, that's great, regardless of whether it impacts [the NBA] during that period when we cross over. Then if it gets Saturday, now you're impacting colleges. Now it's on four days a week. ...

"It's all football. At some point, the people get sick of it."

Cuban said the NFL is making a mistake by valuing television money over the convenience of fans who are used to planning for their NFL teams to play on Sundays with the occasional Monday night game. He compared it to the decline in popularity of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" after the game show expanded to air five days a week.

"They put it on every night," Cuban said. "Not 100 percent analogous, but they handled it the same. I'm just telling you, pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered."

And he thinks it would be a really, really, really bad idea for the NFL to expand to one of those days. He's concerned for the NFL.

I think the NFL probably is over saturating the market, but Cuban is the very definition of attention seeking douchebag.

I wonder what he means by implosion.
The NFL is pretty ubiquitous, and when you're on top, there's nowhere to go but down.
Unless you stay on top. NFL is talking about expansion to Europe, for cryn; out loud. If the product isn't diluted, there is still room for growth.

Yeah, but the owners don't care about anything but making more money.

And at that, they are successful...

Cuban may have a point, but I think the leagues implosion is going to be from a different source, primarily around all the concussion stuff. At some point, the game will have to be systemically changed to keep the lawmakers at bay to the point, people will lose interest.

Football fans are losing interest... Fantasy football fans with zero knowledge of football are lining up in droves to be a football fan.

A few people who have their own agendas (unhappy with this or that rule, usually) have jumped on it, but there is no rational reason to believe that the NFL, even with the expansion into more days, is anywhere close to saturation. If anything, the market will probably easily absorb an 18-game season if the owners ever went that far.
I've seen nothing in the last half year that changes this post

Im ready for the season. I cancelled NFLST after having had it for the past 12 seasons. Not interested in watching the flag happy pussification of the NFL. Ill just watch the network games this season if I have the time. I've finally had my fill of the BS calls and rule changes to make the game "better." I wont see many Chiefs games this season, unless I go to a sports bar, but that could be a good thing...

100% accurate.

All the way around.

I've seen a grand total of about three minutes of preseason football this year, all while I was waiting for my barbecue to-go order to be filled. It was Pittsburgh versus Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh sent some receiver on a deep route. If the penalty that they called on the Eagles' cornerback is indicative of the rules, the NFL is done as an entertainment medium. Just run your receivers deep on every play and wait for the penalty call if it's not caught.

Yeah, it's the Bud Light of sports... the die hards around here might not like the game as it is these days, but it's not really meant for them. It's meant to be watered down for mass consumption. The league has expanded too much and it shows with all the mediocrity, but it won't stop them from expanding more so they can make more money.

I think the greed will cause problems eventually, but 10 years seems to be a bit quick.
