I was just commenting about the NFL expanding the Draft to three days and broadcasting it in prime time and it makes me wonder if there is a point where fans start to get sick of it. For years the league has exploited its popularity to increase its cash flow. There's absolutely nothing inherently wrong with that. But, is there a point where the league abuses the cash cow and starts to become so omni-present that fans start to get bored? Or is the league so popular that no amount of over-coverage will start to turn fans off? The Superbowl pre-game show starts at nearly 7:00 in the morning. There are games on nearly every day of the week now, few of which are marquee match-ups. The combine is on TV now. The schedule will likely expand to 18 regular season games. The league may expand with more teams, possibly in Canada. The jury is out on Roger Gooddell, but it always seemed like Paul Tagliabue was way more interested in now much coin he could squeeze out of the league than protecting the integrity of the game. We were told that big banks and corporations were too big to fail and we all know how well that worked out. Is the NFL too popular to fail?
