It does really just come down to the money and playing "nice" for the advertisers...

When you are this big, you aren't worried about the diehards, you worry about the fringe/temperamental/potential fans. Sadly those "fans" are the ones who cry the loudest about things that happen outside the game. The people who watch The Voice and listen to the cows howl about how big bad football player got off too easy by the commish.

Think of these people of the Westboro Baptists of the sporting/media world.
