Wow, you really like to look at things through a narrow tube, dont you?

The goal is for each team to have equal resources to build their team. What the teams do with that ability and resources should make the difference on how well they compete with others, not because they are in a smaller market or their owner doesnt have the capital. If you have a system where teams have a financial advantage, you do not have a level playing field at the start of each competition and you have basically turned it from a sports league, to a business league. If you're a stock broker, you might enjoy that. For sports fans, it is dull to watch the season play out. A sport is only a sport if you have equal ability and resources to compete at the highest level. If you dont, it is nothing more than a business market where teams are competing like fast food restaurants to earn the most money instead of competing on the field. I dont want to see teams compete for money, I want to watch them play it out on the field and determine who is the better team by playing the sport. That is what sports is about.
