I think this is a fair point and gets to why he is worthy. He's not up there with for instance Lamar Hunt, but it's along those lines. And I say this as someone who doesn't care much for the guy or his fatally flawed Death Stars.

They put a Chick-Fil-A in the new Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, the new home of the Falcons. It will be closed on Sundays.

Uh, you know that football games are maybe 7 Sundays a year, and they have other sports, concerts, and events there.

DeMaurice Smith thinks a lockout after the current CBA expires is likely.

I think you will have a lockout for all 4 Pro Sports in the next decade when all of their TV deals are up. Because there are so many people cutting the cord, all of these Pro Leagues/Teams/Players are overvalued at this point, and they will not get the same TV contract next time. Now NFL isn't as screwed as the NBA, NHL and MLB simply because they don't have as many Cable TV games, but they will take a hit. All of these owners are going to come to the realization in the 2020's that they have to cut back when they are not getting the same revenue with the new TV deals, and it's going to be a bloodbath like the 1980's/90's when all 4 Pro Leagues had endless Strikes/Lockouts.
