FIFA
For what it's worth, the FIFA comparison is a bit of an apples to oranges case. FIFA is a governing body, more similar to the International Cricket Council or other similar bodies than the NFL. A better comparison to the NFL might be the English Premier League in Soccer and the Indian Premier League in Cricket.

FIFA and the ICC are more susceptible to internal power struggles between countries/members (i.e. India hogging up revenue negotiations and ruining cricket worldwide in the name of money) than the NFL or the NBA - Sterling can't crash the NBA, but India could ruin the ICC.
