Default It's all about perspective

just ask any sports fan who lives in the state of Wisconsin.

They are both Milwaukee Brewer fans and Green Bay Packers fans. Ask them who has the FAIREST chance of making the big show. They will answer the team that has the same revenue stream as the rest of the teams in the league. It's not rocket science here.

And I don't want to hear any more about the Florida Marlins. Their World Series Championship was an aberration . . . aberration . . aberration.

Take the percentages of how often the "big-market" (Yankees, Braves, Resd Sox) teams make the playoffs every year compared to how often the "small-market" teams do..

The salary cap is what put the "small-market" teams on the same level as the "big market" teams. In fact, the levels are eliminated. And the NFL is what it is today. Every team has an equal 'financial' shot.

In Major League Baseball, you have the 'haves' and the 'have-nots'. Yessir . . . truly American.
