Football is eating its self, the expansion will slow and hit reverse at some point.


Very true, professional football at the top level has sold its soul to the TV franchises and now they are coming to collect on their investment.


Especially now as we hear Netflix, Amazon and other giants of entertainment are to become involved, sponsors will demand more and more TV exposure, TV companies will demand more 'air time' for advertising, e.g. awaiting VAR decisions, and any other 'stoppages' that can be introduced into the so called 'live' game.


Games will last longer, more breaks involved and Games played Fri through Sat/Sun to Mon nights (already happening with FA Cup)


It will become a "3-Ringed Circus" or equivalent!

Spot on. Single young blokes are the demographic to aim at, they have the most disposable income and spend more recklessly apparently. So football is the perfect market for these capitalist pigs to suck dry.
