    Let them use steroids and start jacking 70+ home runs.

    I'll watch again.

    The NBA is a 2nd tier league here but is the #1 basketball league around the world.

    When I'm in Europe most people don't nothing about the Tennessee Titans, outside of England and Germany, but mention the Lakers, Bulls, Grizzlies, Heat, Timberwolves and most people know who they are.

    NBA is big in Spain, Greece, China, India, Eastern Europe

    People can hate on the NBA all they want but they have done a great job building the league.

    I think the NFL would be wise to get in on this college football reorganization too. CFB is spiraling toward a pay for play system of some type and a dissolving of the NCAA as we know it now.

    What better new governing body for this new CFB "league than our beloved SHIELD

    Could you imagine a league deal between the NFL and the SEC?


    I also wish the franchises would do a better job marketing themselves and being involved in the community.

    Looking at you Titans...

    I think he's pretty spot on actually. I have said virtually the same thing but for different reasons and 20 years rather than 10.

    I've said for a while if I was an owner I would be selling my franchise right now while I still can. It's becoming a bad investment at this point IMO.

    Too much is changing too fast. If Tagliabue had stayed in charge none of this would be happening. Just sayin'.

    NBA talent is spread too thin as well. They need to downsize and stop pandering to the 5 or so superstars they have.

    That doesn't make sense. If they downsize, pandering to the superstars is exactly what they would be doing.

    They're two separate things.

    This is not true at all, baseball is the second most watched sport in the US... And attendance has gone up. Nice try though.

    Football is called American football for a reason. It is a national phenomenon. And I could be wrong, but it won't work in other countries. It will go over as well there as cricket does in the USA. There is simply not enough interest to make one last there.

    Sure, you can send a game or two over and make a spectacle of it. Does anybody think they will be successful for 10+ games per year? I don't think so.
    Countries already have their sports. Nfl is barking up the wrong tree.

    It's too equipment reliant, slow paced, and too complicated, to be accepted by the masses of the world. If they wanted to care about football.. They already would.
