But the deal does also assure that every game will be available

in their home city on over the air antenna TV through the duration of the deal (2033). That's a good move by the NFL, there are lots of people out there who just get the major nets through the antenna and have maybe one streaming service like Netflix or something. My sister and brother in law for example. They aren't big sports fans, though my b-i-l will watch occasionally.

So the NFL (the home team at least) will still always be there for casual people like that, people who would never pay for a package just to get sports. Other sports will just completely disappear off the radar of people like that and will thus never be in a position to grow their fanbase. Like MLB. Baseball fans like me will always find a way to watch and it will be a factor in our decisions to cut the cord or to choose a streaming service. But it will cease to exist for people who aren't interested enough to pay for it and become more of a niche sport than it already is starting to become.
