You missed something. A new, far more lucrative TV deal, whether it is with ESPN/ABC or Comcast/VS/NBC, is going to mean more money for ALL teams, not just rich teams.

Granted the parity in monies generated between the rich teams and the poor teams may get larger, but more MONEY is ALWAYS a GOOD thing for EVERYONE.

It shouldn't prevent the cap going up for the time being.
