Is it the same game, even now? When I went to Canton a couple of years ago I was surprised with how little the game we watch now resembles football in its early years.
Greed is and will certainly negatively affect us. At the same time, the profitability of the NFL is the reason it's still broadcast on channels like ABC/Fox/NBC while basketball is signing deals with networks no one can even see.
