Im going to keep posting these articles because people keep holding up the NFL and NBA concepts of parity as some great oracle for success when they are false prophets offering false hope. And they are going to have a hard time renegotiating them again in their round of bargaining.
This isnt an isolated article. Its all over even on the NFL pre-game shows.
Downside of NFL Parity
The other leagues are supposed to be jealous.
The NFL hails parity as a way to keep the casual fan interested because it prolongs the local team's odds of making the playoffs. And once there, anyone can beat anyone - for proof, just read down the list of recent Super Bowl champs. Rams. Ravens. Patriots. A who's-who of preseason chumps and historical pariahs that made it to Disneyland, providing legions of once-forlorn fans a reason to finally rejoice.
Again, please give a link and do not post more than a paragraph or two from an online article, otherwise it's a copyright violation, thanks - Sotnos
