NFL Media exec: Mark Cuban was asking the right question

markcuban AP

When Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban asked whether the NFL was reaching the saturation point and running the risk of people getting sick of it, a lot of football fans dismissed it. But the NFL office didn’t.

Executive Vice President of NFL Media Brian Rolapp told the Hollywood Reporter that Cuban was asking the same questions that the NFL itself asks when it takes steps like playing games in London, expanding the playoffs or putting Thursday Night Football on network television.

Cuban was asking the right question, and it’s a question we ask ourselves all the time,” Rolapp said. “But what we haven’t seen yet is dilution [of the brand]. If we’ve hit the saturation period, we certainly haven’t seen it. But it’s something we keep an eye on.”

The NFL has added a third game in London, added CBS as a Thursday Night Football TV partner in addition to televising the games on NFL Network and is expected to add two more playoff games starting with the 2015 season. But Rolapp says there’s no evidence that the fans think they’re getting too much of a good thing.

“It’s a legitimate question,” Rolapp said. “But we measure our business very simply: Is consumption going up, and is the economic value going up?”

As long as consumption goes up and economic value goes up, the NFL sees no reason to change course.

    I for one can’t wait for the season to start even though my team is average at best. The NFL has an awesome product and unless they ruin that product I will continue to watch and purchase extra content like many of us out there.

  2. thestrategyexpert says: Jul 16, 2014 1:11 PM

    There’s also a couple of important business terms that they should consider complicating their analysis with:

    Total Revenues (total money supply)
    Profit Margin (the rate at which the money supply turns into profit supply)

    If you jack up both of those quantities to higher and higher numbers, then that’s a really neat thing for everybody associated with the industry. Sorry if this is way over everybody’s head, but I learned this stuff from an institution now referred to as the Ross School of Business. Interesting ideas they talk about over there, plus they have books on this stuff too.

    Cuban was also asking the right question when he wondered if the Lakers should have amnestied Kobe. They would have been far better off if they had.

  4. clashpoint says: Jul 16, 2014 1:13 PM

    Money. Over. Everything. Business status quo.

    Yeah, can we start the actual games yet?
    Please?

  5. softhelmet says: Jul 16, 2014 1:16 PM

    Total Revenues and Profit Margin, oh you are too smart for us. Can’t you use marbles to describe this for us?

  6. cassrangers says: Jul 16, 2014 1:17 PM

    Sick of the NFL??? NEVER!!!!!!!

  7. melikefootball says: Jul 16, 2014 1:18 PM

    Being a sport fan I have to agree with the assessment of Cuban. The NFL salaries are getting higher and higher and now spread out to other positions on the team. When will we see the lineman standing up and wanting the same as so called skilled positions. Look at how the game is being changed under Gödel under the influence of the owners under the name safety. With the free agency ,how some teams can continue to buy players and the have not teams get less and less competitive a change to the game is coming. The NFL is throwing out the fan now for TV contracts, wait till the fans get tired and stop going. How many games were going to be blacked out last year?

  8. valentino8100 says: Jul 16, 2014 1:23 PM

    Love me some Mark Cuban.

    Not sure how much further the NFL can push the saturation envelope, but the nature of these things often dictates that you really don’t know how far is too far, until you’ve passed the point of no return.

  9. mogogo1 says: Jul 16, 2014 1:25 PM

    In this same manner, the captain of the Titanic would have told you they were carefully watching for icebergs right up until the moment they hit one. The NFL leadership is convinced they can do no wrong and that is exactly when you become most vulnerable.

    Seriously, when is the last time the NFL has backed off any idea? The 18-game schedule has seemingly died about 4 times over the past couple years, yet then Goodell himself will bring it back to life. Same thing with the constant harping about putting a team in London. Asking questions isn’t very helpful unless you’re going to be open to all possible answers. Goodell and company just ask the question until some yes-man gives them the answer they want to hear.

  10. fromundamahjunk says: Jul 16, 2014 1:26 PM

    I’m pretty sure they could add a friday night game and still not be over-saturated. The product is in demand, even at the current level of exposure. I personally, do not know of a person who consumes or spends money on the NFL, that feels they are getting enough of it, which would come before getting too much football. (That may be the first time in human history those last 3 words have been used in that order.)

  11. 4grammarpolice says: Jul 16, 2014 1:27 PM

    The “right” question should be: How do we keep our players from driving drunk and beating up women?

  12. natelan69 says: Jul 16, 2014 1:28 PM

    Never thought I would say this… But I am SICK of the NFL. SATURATION POINT REACHED!!! Scale it back, NFL.

  13. myeaglescantwin says: Jul 16, 2014 1:28 PM

    GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED

    changing the game.
    stopping the game.
    curtailing the game to fit commercial and profit needs.

    disgusting.

  14. bullcharger says: Jul 16, 2014 1:29 PM

    The impact of decisions they make now can’t be immediately recognized. Making decisions like expanding the league to the UK or changing the hitting rules or extending the season to more games will only have an impact after several years of living in the new system. Of course the money is still rolling in at the moment.

    That’s why I don’t like it when they tinker with the rules too much. For exampe the KO return change has definitely negatively impacted the game from a fan perspective. I get why they changed it, but the game isn’t as exciting. I don’t think it will reduce the revenue in the short term, but long term it may.

  15. bmorepositive123 says: Jul 16, 2014 1:29 PM

    I’m a football fan, I didn’t dismiss it. Cuban, for what it’s worth, always speaks as straight forward as possible. For good or for bad.

  16. dennisatunity says: Jul 16, 2014 1:30 PM

    A question about over-saturation is always appropriate to ask. However, the very nature of the NFL season makes that unlikely to happen. This isn’t baseball with an almost endless number of games. This isn’t basketball with a preposterous number of playoff games. In football, every game counts. You can have a strong season in football but lose one too many and be kept out of the playoffs–just ask the Arizona Cardinals. Every game counts. You can’t lose a playoff game and still come back to win it all like in basketball. Why? It’s win or go home in the playoffs for the NFL. In football, every game counts.

  17. heeeeelzfan says: Jul 16, 2014 1:31 PM

    Cuban isn’t a billionaire because he got lucky.

  18. pem34 says: Jul 16, 2014 1:40 PM

    I don’t like the idea of Friday night football (or for that matter Saturday during college football season) but adding more Thursday games (make each team play the week after their bye on thurs) would be cool and would add interest

  19. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Jul 16, 2014 1:42 PM

    Often by the time it’s obvious a brand is being over exposed, it is too late.

    The money coming in is what the NFL is drunk on and frankly all they look at. Some of that can be deceiving with inflated ticket prices and over blown TV contracts.

    Higher revenues don’t mean it is necessarily growing in popularity.

    The games not selling out, empty seats and threats of black outs could be symptoms of saturation which already exist.

    Cuban was making a statement phrased as a question. IMO

  20. uglydingo says: Jul 16, 2014 1:44 PM

    Cuban might be asking the right question but Commissioner Roger is driven by one sole factor – What is it?

    (a) Protecting the Shield

    (b) Making the game safer for the players

    (c) Growing support for the game

    (d) Increasing NFL owner profits

    Ding Ding Ding – Correct answer is (d) and he will do it anyway he can.

    Remember the days when watching an NFL game was an ‘event’ that only occurred on Sundays and Monday Nights? It was special back then because no other league had that. Baseball, basketball & hockey were all played on every day of the week. Now the NFL is Sunday, Monday, Thursday and the odd Saturday. Soon there will be Tuesday and Wednesday games and the saturation/dilution of the league will be complete. Add a team from London and the ‘greed machine’ will be complete. The NFL is the newest edition the the ‘Trop 50-ing’ of sports.

  22. udontknowjaq says: Jul 16, 2014 1:47 PM

    Over saturation? The NFL, really where? Because of a Thursday game, & a few games over sea’s? ppl complain about anything, everything else has been all talk.. If your tired of saturation in your mind just do this. Watch your teams games only every week & don’t go watching highlights, commentary & reading blogs or articles.. Sounds like hate from Marky sum because Basketball season is 9 months long & is on TV everyday during that span. There are even crappy D league games on now along with about 25 fans in the stands not to mention WNBA.. Talk about over saturation

  23. guitarmaninks says: Jul 16, 2014 1:51 PM

    @thestrategyexpert I learned this from MBA’s , CEO’s and dealing with fortune 100 companies ….. Never forget about human nature as business isn’t just numbers . . . emotions can turn your customers on you overnight.

    ‘As long as consumption goes up and economic value goes up, the NFL sees no reason to change course.’

    As someone who enjoys a physical brand of football the game itself is sadly a shell of what it once was. Consumption has gone up largely b/c of fantasy football where fringe fans now have a vested interest in what goes on but CLEARLY the product on the field has already been watered down due to the insane amount of rule changes & the changes in the number & length of practices that are allowed as constituted in the CBA. Thursday night games are practically unwatchable & I couldn’t care less about the games played in London.

    The problem is that once they ‘dilute the product’ & begin to turn the fans away–there’s no going back. It’s only a matter of time before the owners & Goodell destroy a good thing.

    thegreatjimmyk,

    Agreed. Plus the games aren’t as well played. Aside from the Seahawks, the Niners, & the Panthers no one even knows how to tackle anymore. It’s just pitiful.

    I’m also not one of those fantasy fans who want to watch QB’s throw for 500 yards every game. I like a 50/50 mix of the pass & the run.

  26. macdaddyspeed says: Jul 16, 2014 1:58 PM

    As long as nationally televised vikings games are limited, there will be no danger of dilution. SKOoLed!!

  27. Marshawn Lunch says: Jul 16, 2014 1:59 PM

    Apart from putting games in London, I am in favor of most things the NFL does. When you are at games it is a great experience, and when you watch games at home it is relatively good too. I think they should add a bunch more cameras to the goal line too.

  28. jebdamone says: Jul 16, 2014 2:01 PM

    i will continue to watch NFL football whenever it is on but I do think it is threatened with over saturation. i felt that way even with the expansion of thursday night games. i love football and will watch it any day of the week but that is kinda the problem…i have other things i like to do with my evenings. football thursday, saturday (college), sunday and monday night is a bit much.

  29. spurtbball says: Jul 16, 2014 2:07 PM

    Hey Cuban worry about your own sport, the NBA, which in popularity ranks BEHIND Nascar (cars going around in a circle)….The NBA’s stars are aging, and if a team does not have a top player that the media likes that your team is never mentioned nor are their games shown nationally, the season is so long that if your favorite team is not playing you don’t watch other teams (unlike the NFL where fans watch any team), the NBA regular season is worthless only the playoffs really count, and teams under .500 get into the playoffs in the Eastern Conference. And now Lebron goes to Cleveland……Quit butting into the NFL’s business, and worry about trying to improve the NBA………

  30. greenwhodat26 says: Jul 16, 2014 2:08 PM

    A max contract in the NBA is north of $22m and the top-paid QB in the NFL gets the same. So you can’t use the fact that their salaries are rising to justify what he was saying. Mark Cuban is just mad because no matter what his league does, they will never reach the level of the NFL.

  31. tformation says: Jul 16, 2014 2:09 PM

    They need to start ACTING like they’re asking that question.

    Games on every Thursday in the season is just a bad idea. Diluting the quality. Just stop already.

  32. fground says: Jul 16, 2014 2:15 PM

    personally Thursday night is a saturation point for me. I used to watch Sunday all day and night and Monday night as well. Now I tend to only watch night games if my favourite team is playing or if it a really premium matchup.

  33. crappygovernment says: Jul 16, 2014 2:17 PM

    Marxist PC politics and social engineering attempts will kill the NFL!

  34. slugdc says: Jul 16, 2014 2:21 PM

    When and on what networks the extra games are played makes no real difference to me so long as all the games continue to have meaning. The risk for me comes when you start extending the playoffs or increasing the number of teams that make the playoffs. You make the regular season that much less important and when half the teams make the playoffs fewer people care about those non-postseason games. It’s why less people care about pre-all-star break baseball, or early round NBA playoffs. Expanding the playoff field dilutes that gravity and drama of the game-by-game regular season. The great thing about following the NFL is that every single game has weight and emotion to it that fans can invest in. They need to take care not to lose that; it’s a special condition among the big sports.

  37. bigredgoog says: Jul 16, 2014 2:36 PM

    I’ll take the extra games if they will cut back on the number of commercials, cut back on reading a commercial when they come back from a commercial and generally hurting the flow of the game in order to squeeze every nickel of revenue they can out of a broadcast.

    Those interruptions are a bigger threat to enjoyment and thus loyalty than an extra game or two.

  38. tremoluxman says: Jul 16, 2014 2:36 PM

    Often, the people on the inside are the last ones to see the crash coming. Why? Because they are blinded by their own perceived ‘genius’ in assessing the situation and by the money rolling in. They ignore the signs and think they’re a temporary dip when it’s really the bottom falling out.
    Happens with every market crash or bubble bursting.

  39. psuorioles says: Jul 16, 2014 2:38 PM

    Personally, I think the product is getting saturated and I’ve watched and paid attention less every year… the only reason I’m on this site now, is because of MLB’s All-Star Break.

  40. longsufferingkcfan says: Jul 16, 2014 2:41 PM

    The UFC could never rival the NFL in terms of entertainment level, but the NFL should look at what has happened with the UFC and take note. They have essentially doubled the number of events which has watered down the talent level and prompted a huge backlash.

  41. jjackwagon says: Jul 16, 2014 2:46 PM

    Corporate greed is killing NASCAR and the NFL will follow if they don’t make some changes.

  42. mmacify says: Jul 16, 2014 2:55 PM

    Another issue the NFL should watch out for is putting too many commercial breaks during a game. Attention spans are getting shorter. I’ve watched numerous teens and 20-somethings stop watching because they just can’t stand all of the interruptions to the game. The league/networks seem to be toying with, “How many ads can we cram into one game and still have people watch?”

    How many others record the game and start watching at halftime so they can fastforward through the commercials?

  43. gofor2with3pointlead says: Jul 16, 2014 3:18 PM

    Socialism, for lack of a better term, is what keeps professional sports, football in particular, viable. If the NFL tried to follow MLB’s model it would be done already. Who the hell wants billionaire owners, such as Snyder and Jones, throwing good money after bad in an attempt to gain some sort of advantage over small market teams that don’t have bottomless pockets? Wake up for Christ’s sake, these leagues enjoy anti-trust exemption already, so don’t even try the “free market capitalism” is the only economic model, you’ve already lost the argument.

  44. bengal4life says: Jul 16, 2014 3:26 PM

    Two more playoff games???? Please don’t turn this into the NBA.

  45. brownsmakemecrazy says: Jul 16, 2014 3:26 PM

    At first I thought more games on Thursday night were a good thing (besides Thanksgiving). They are unwatchable now. They have horrible match ups and frankly because of the quick turn around d the quality of the game is sub par.

    A few years ago I thought they should expand the Playoffs because alot of good teams were left out. They should keep the amount of playoff teams the same because the 1st round playoff games are so so. I think the NFL is the only sport where the regular season is more exciting than the playoffs.

    reducing the impacts of the kickoffs definitely makes the games worse

    The officiating and length of reply challenges makes the games worse. The amount of commercials are painful. If you’ve noticed the length of games are longer now because of the insane amount of commercials. Those are all things that make the games worse.

  46. fanasaurus says: Jul 16, 2014 3:31 PM

    The NFL is KING, just look at what they constantly do to tick off their fans, yet we will all be there to soak up everything the game has to offer. We complain and tune in for some more every chance we get.

    With them possibly expanding to 18 games, all that flies out the window.

    The NFL does a great job staying relevant.

    They would have a lot more of my money if they didn’t have Sunday Ticket exclusively on Directv.

    If the 2014 streaming service straight to computer/console/ios is really happening, they are about to get a lot more of my money.

  56. bunjy96 says: Jul 16, 2014 4:55 PM

    I’ve already had my fill.

    Sunday Monday and Thursday, is too much.

    The Thursday games are a step below the others as all the players haven’t recovered from the previous Sunday games.

    Am against games outside the U. S. no matter where they are played. This is an American game.

    Next we’ll be playing the Super Bowl in Costa Rica or Toyko.

    I watch 50% less games than I used to. It’s just too much for me. There’s no excitement.

  57. dmretrogames says: Jul 16, 2014 5:09 PM

    Saturation won’t ruin the NFL, rules changes to make it resemble arena football will. If it becomes a pass and catch competition with the first to 60 winning, fans will leave in droves.

  58. granadafan says: Jul 16, 2014 5:09 PM

    Saturation has long since been reached on ticket prices and the overall cost of going to games in person versus watching the games in the comfort of your own home on the HD flat screen with the drinks YOU like. The NFL greedily accepted the billions from the TV networks to broadcast the games, yet punishes fans (and the networks) when people would prefer to watch the game…. on TV. That, ladies and gentlemen, is called irony (and hypocrisy).

  59. bobsnygiants says: Jul 16, 2014 5:35 PM

    Over-saturation. Too many commercials. You can’t escape it. Even when you are at the game, you have to wait while all the freakin’ commercials are being driven down the rest of the world’s throats. Yes, I love football the best, but still watch less than I did years ago…..

  63. pound30 says: Jul 16, 2014 6:40 PM

    I didn’t realize how much but I too think its already hit a saturation point. After reading all the comments and seeing so many people saying the same thing then I can only say it must be true. For that many people to agree on this site it tells a lot. One thing that the NFL probably didn’t think about as far as viewers and stuff is Fantasy Football which had a huge impact the last 10 years on viewership. People watch crappy games because they have someone on their team. Nothings really changed and I would be willing to bet there aren’t as many new fantasy football players as there were 5 years ago. Maybe I am being dumb about the Fantasy Football aspect but I almost get tired of watching crappy games even if I do have someone playing. The huge spike in viewership probably was greatly impacted by that than anything else.

    Also the comments regarding you don’t know you hit that saturation point until it’s too late. I agree with that too. What if they have hit it already. They can’t go and cut it back. There is already contracts in place for the long term. I think it is just a little too much.

  64. tmkelley1 says: Jul 16, 2014 6:49 PM

    Personally, I don’t enjoy the Thursday games. It’s just not a good night for pro football. College games, maybe, but not pro.

  67. hawkforlife says: Jul 16, 2014 8:46 PM

    I thought I would probably watch all Thursday games like the rest of you until I saw the promo, Phil Sims every Thursday. No way. That’s over saturation that shouldn’t be forced on the public on any day.

  68. magicmtndan says: Jul 16, 2014 9:14 PM

    Greed is always an issue.

    But! Just wait!

    When AT&T gets its hands on DirecTV and NFL Sunday Ticket, that package price will go WAY UP to help them pay the billions they’re gonna borrow to buy DirecTV.

    Inflation is here. And it’s going to hit the cost to watch the NFL everywhere.

  69. bspray says: Jul 16, 2014 10:24 PM

    I watch fewer and fewer NFL games every year. Fantasy Football is losing it’s charm. Add a team outside the US and I will tap out on the NFL. In my mind, the NHL is a far superior product.

    I think theres too much.

    For 20 years I have happily watch almost all of my teams games(Steelers, I live in PA).
    But frankly its becoming a bother that so many games are no longer on Sunday afternoon. 1 or 2 Monday or Sunday night games is fine and even fun often. More than that and it gets old. Thursday night is down right annoying.

  72. johnnymarlin says: Jul 17, 2014 12:01 AM

    I would watch NFL Network religiously if they would put something on worth watching. I’ve gotten to the point where I only have time to focus on one sport and I love the NFL. I have to believe there are millions of people like me. NFL Network is a ridiculous menage of non-issues and fluff. Let me head it up and I will triple the ratings in two months (and I have no experience whatsoever). Televising NFL Radio would be better than watching NFL Access over and over.

  73. criticaldsj says: Jul 17, 2014 12:18 AM

    You’ll get another lesson in oversaturation then.

    The Draft was over saturating a good thing. Pushing it into May just hearing more speculation, mock drafts, and constantly hearing the same questions being asked to draftees just got to be too much. Personally I wish it were in early 2 weeks earlier than what it is usually held.

    The Thursday games suck. The product isn’t the same. The play is sloppy from players being tired & under prepared after Sunday.

    Familiarity breeds contempt.

    Mark Cuban is a very very smart man………….who should never be ignored.

    As a lifelong NFL fan I definitely watch less football games than ever before.

    Most fans who watch all these games are mostly

    employees not employers
    in low paying jobs
    who hate their life
    maybe their wife

    and are too stressed and pissed to enjoy much else.

    I can only speak for my self but I find the NFL boring. Changing the format for the draft is one of the greatest fu-pa’s of all time. Secondly the NFL is like watching grass grow. Same plays, different uni,,same defense, same ole same ole.
    BORING,,,,,,and now the NFL wants to add more playoff games,,,eeeegggadds, why not put all teams in the playoffs just like Hockey,,,let the season go until late June, just in time for training camp,,,
    Why oh why should any NFL team have to play a game half way around the world,,,??????

    The whole thing will inevitably blow up, because the people who run the NFL these days are solely in the pursuit of money, not making the game better for its fans.
