Yep.  I think we've hit the peak for value of sports franchises, especially NFL teams.  For the NFL it's obviously the injuries and CTE but it goes well beyond that.  Networks like ESPN are losing subscribers with cord cutting and they are realizing they overpaid for broadcasting rights.

And kids aren't as interested in sports as they used to be.  There is so much more digital entertainment to occupy their times and because of ticket prices they don't go to as many games that would make them fans for life.  Plus, there are so many commercials it's hard to keep them interested for 3-4 hours.

These are all preventable problems but the owners are too focused on profits now while killing their future market.

I think we'll see an unprecedented number of teams come up for sale in the next decade. At the end of the day the NFL is worth what the network tv ad sales are worth and we have already seen that start to erode. Don't get me wrong. The NFL is an absurdly profitable moneymaking machine... but I wouldn't buy stock in NFL futures right now.
