They are replaceable in the sense you could get any human to do it, but if you want a shock to the quality, then sure, they could hire you and me and get an inferior product. Now, the human's greatest asset is its ability to adjust, so perhaps we would enjoy inferior football just as much (though i dont enjoy the college game much for these reasons), but im not sure if they want to take that chance.
And we are not the product, we make the product. No one tunes into my station to watch me, im not shrink wrapped on some store shelf.
I'm sure any owner could find a willing buyer for the team too. Cuts both ways.
