This morning, on the radio, the TV ratings were compared to "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" The overexposure of that show, led to it's decline. But, as the radio personality stated: "The NFL has 16 games over four months. Fans of a team are not going to get overexposed to its product. A fan will watch his/her team on Sunday, Monday, or Thursday. As for the casual fan, again, it's a four month window... and then, it's gone.m So, there is no real risk of overexposure."
The draft gets more views than most World Series games. I'm not worried at all about the viewers tuning in.
But, as I've already stated, the concussion issues are a real threat.
