When did I attribute moral high ground to anybody? Both sides deserve a punch in the crotch IMO.

If I tend to side with ownership more, it's mostly just cold pragmatism...a lot of good moral high ground will do me if my team ends up in Houston.

Make no mistake though...all I want is a solution whereby all teams have a greater chance of holding onto the players they develop in house if they so choose. Whether it's done by luxury tax, hard/soft cap or some other permutation is rather immaterial to me. But if it's a luxury tax, then it better damn well be one with some teeth.
