Agian, if you are looking at what model has succeeded. THere is no question the NFL has done by far the best. It isn't clear that the game has gotten any better. American's clearly have loved Basketball and Baseball in the past. It seems that the average sports fan does love the parity of the NFL.
I actually used to be a huge MLB and NBA fan. When it was clear parity was not what they were looking for, I stopped watching and started following the NFL. If the NHL had not brought parity in the last CBA, I would have stopped watching as well. If they ever don't try to maintain the level of parity they have now, I will stop.
