Agreed they weren't perfectly analogous in structure, but I'm talking about financial viability. MLB spends a huge amount of money on the minor league system in order to develop players. I don't see the NFL owners or the players taking a huge paycheck haircut in order to subsidize a minor league system. So, that minor league system would have to self-fund to an extent and I just don't think there's enough football demand to make that happend.
