I disagree, Edge. Baseball is a prime example. Last year, a small-market team won the World Series. THis year, there are more and more teams that are competing. Not just the 'Yanks. Detroit is on it's way back. So is Cleveland. So is Texas. If anything, the luxury tax system has made baseball better.
And I do not think that the luxury tax system has hurt the NBA. You do not need a hard-core salary cap to make the NHL better.
