- THE BUBBLE HAS BURST -

In investing, when a bubble bursts it means that correction occurs in which something that was previously viewed as being very valuable is no longer viewed as having as much value.

So if a football player was said to have tons of potential but by his fourth season had not performed exceptionally, you could say, "well, the bubble burst on that guy."
