Right, thats what I'm saying. The owners have
financial interests at heart. Thats all. They could care less if you or I ever went to another game. They could care less if any of their fellow owners went broke. They could care less if any of their fellow owners ever won another game. Its all about maximizing profits. Don't let anybody fool you into thinking they have a more noble goal than that.
If they truly had the
interest's at heart, they would compromise on a luxury tax now, before the game is ruined. They can have a cap all they want, but if they miss an entire season, its going to take alot more than that to fix things.
