Troy Aikman thinks the product may rapidly become diluted in the next few years. The NFL Network is having problems attracting subscribers and this he feels is a warning sign that too much product may be out there. He says you get games on Sunday, Monday, Thursday and late in the season also on Saturday. That's a lot of football to digest.
Los Angeles does not have a team and many here don't miss it. We get all the games, because there is no blackout rule in effect. There are so many other activities that Angelenos can take part in that the game is not missed. The same thing cannot be said about Pittsburgh or Minneapolis or Buffalo in November and December.
In contrast, college football is rigidly constrained to a specific period of time. It makes each game all that more important and interesting. With the new Pac12 Network, I hope we won't be diluting a great sport. Probably not, in that it encompasses all the college sports, not just football and basketball.
