NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Any way you slice it, by any measure, the National Football League is the most successful professional sports league in the United States.

But Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who knows a thing or two about business, foresees some trouble for the NFL down the line.

“I think the NFL is 10 years away from an implosion,” Cuban told reporters on Sunday. “I’m just telling you: Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. And they’re getting hoggy. Just watch. Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. When you try to take it too far, people turn the other way. I’m just telling you, when you’ve got a good thing and you get greedy, it always, always, always, always, always turns on you. That’s rule No. 1 of business.”

Cuban’s Mavs lost to the Nets, 107-104, in overtime on Sunday night at American Airlines Center.

The famed businessman, investor and entrepreneur is skeptical of the league expanding its television package.

NFL games are, of course, broadcast on Sunday and Monday. In early February, CBS added a package of Thursday night games to its already loaded NFL lineup for next season.

CBS and the NFL Network will simulcast eight games early in the 2014 season. The remaining eight late-season games will be televised on the NFL Network, which previously aired the entire Thursday Night Football franchise.

Fourteen games will air on Thursday nights. The other two will be broadcast leading up to the playoffs on Saturdays. CBS will produce all 16 games.

“They’re trying to take over every night of TV,” Cuban said. “Initially, it’ll be, ‘Yeah, they’re the biggest-rating thing that there is.’ OK, Thursday, that’s great, regardless of whether it impacts (the NBA) during that period when we cross over. Then if it gets Saturday, now you’re impacting colleges. Now it’s on four days a week. It’s all football. At some point, the people get sick of it.”
