I think the whole dominate dominion scene disproves that.
IMO Riot is going to try to tie a big map graphical update, aura rework, new itemization, and a fix to the whole losing team comeback mechanism all together, roll it into an ad campaign for a big exciting new change (like with TT) and then see if people flock over to dominion to try it out again.
I think they should also add ranked at that time; tell people there will be dominion based rewards (icons, borders, skins, w/e).
This will be IMO their best shot at revitalizing dominion from it's current backwater status. As it currently stands, why play dominion when SR and TT get you fancy rewards and have actually competitive ranked play?
also, taking top dominion players out of blind pick and putting them in ranked will solve a lot of other problems, like creating a friendlier and more relaxed attitude in normals, and fixing some balance issues by allowing OP champions to be banned
