You may argue to the contrary until blue in face, but that is the reality. Sure, innovations are great, they may help the athletes and the existing fans, but they are not going to dramatically enlarge the fan base.
Uh oh, how many precedents must I cite where someone (or group) was not willing to accept the status quo as an inevitable reality that was not in anyone's power to change. Look at the (literally) unbelievable powerful paradigm shifts that occurred on MANY fronts in 1960s America. If you want to see what one man can do, look at Gandhi or MLK, Jr.. Changing something as trivial as the way USA T&F is presented is a whole lot easier!
