And on another note everytime I really get into hockey they have a damn lockout.I may be done after this one
Absolutely false. The NFL averages 5 different teams out of 12
making the post-season from the previous year.
MLB is the most unfair system because of the ability of big market teams able to spend much more on payroll. The Yankees, for example, have made the post-season every year but once since 1995. It is not because of brilliance, it is because they have the ability to keep all of their players and sign others from teams that cannot afford to keep their players.
If we lived in a smaller market, something tells me we wouldn't like the MLB system.
In all fairness, the MLB system with the heavier Luxury Tax beginning in 2013 will make things more balanced. Though I still feel a hard cap like the NFL & NHL are better systems.
