Do you think the NFL just popped out of the ether as a big-time operation? Hell no. When the NFL started out they weren't even a blip on the sports map. They MADE themselves into the sports juggernaut that they now are. How did they do it? With their business model off the field and competitive balance (read parity) on the field. They didn't do it by flushing their credibility with contraction and saying "we're content to be a minor league with 6-12 teams confined to the Rust Belt". They didn't do it by promoting a product where 3 or 4 teams monopolize all the top players and share the title amongst themselves at the expense of the rest.
