It's the NFL where sucking is rewarded with the top draft picks, small market teams are kept competitive with the salary cap/revenue sharing and teams that do well are precluded from signing free agents. Comp picks are just another way to help keep up the parity in the league. The NFL is socialism at its finest, if you want a capitalistic sport, follow the EPL. That's a real dog-eat-dog league.
