Deadspin- In the worlds of both sports and television, the NFL is a behemoth. But is there something uniquely and grossly profitable about pro football that it can continue to grow indefinitely, or has it hit its ceiling? Mavericks owner Mark Cuban thinks the end is nigh. Speaking to reporters ahead of last night’s Mavs game, Cuban predicted the bursting of the NFL bubble within the next decade, hastened by a recent cash grab that may overexpose the product. “I think the NFL is 10 years away from an implosion,” Cuban said. “When pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. And they’re getting hoggy. When you try to take it too far, people turn the other way. I’m just telling you, when you got a good thing and you get greedy, it always, always, always, always, always turns against you.” Cuban is referring specifically to the NFL’s new TV deal with CBS, which will bring in hundreds of millions a year for the right to broadcast half the league’s Thursday games, and see the return of at least two Saturday games a year. Cuban believes the league is overextending itself, and overestimating the public’s appetite for week-round football.

Most people will hate to hear it, but Mark Cuban is spot on. The guy knows a thing or two about a thing or two when it comes to raking in the cash. He streamed college basketball games online and made a fucking mint. The Mavs were a fucking joke and now they are the 5th most valuable basketball team thanks to his business expertise. So trust him when he says having football on all the time is going to one day just be too much for the viewers and the NFL will end up losing money. The trend really starts with people not going to as many games due to the high cost and dealing with the bullshit traffic in and out of the stadium. So unless you are the Packers and people think they own the team (wink wink) or Seattle and there is nothing to do there other than cry and drink coffee, you aren’t selling out a stadium. Add to the fact that you make football something you have the chance to watch almost everyday during the week, people won’t HAVE to watch. Make something unavailable and they want it. When you are single no chick wants the dick. When you have a girlfriend for 45 seconds every model in the world thinks your hairline is amazing and your beer belly is sexy. So NFL listen up, Mark Cuban and myself have a plan..
Games only on Monday and Sunday.
Lower the ticket prices or the beer prices. Either one will cause people to cum in happiness but both would be too much.
Offer speedlanes to leave the stadium for an extra cost kinda like the Speedpass at Universal or Disney.
Make the Raiders the Super Bowl champs or their fans will murder you.

Easy peasy, Japanesey.
