Let's try this again because the last discussion went to hell. A poster tried using flawed data and a flawed premise to argue that big market teams like the jets or the raiders can afford high priced players and we can't. That same poster in response to my factual post used baseball as an example of proof of his thesis. 1. Baseball does not have revenue sharing. A team like the yankees can get a local tv contract worth 3X that of an average team. Not the case in the nfl where all tv deals are shared equally among ALL 43 teams. 2 Baseball does not have a salary cap so those wealthier teams can spend more for the better players. Revenue sharing and salary cap means that all nfl teams basically operate on a fair playing field. No team in the nfl should be unable to spend up to the cap limit.
