It there were no salary cap and minimal revenue sharing like in MLB, we'd still be a powerhouse. The league is designed for parity. A tiny percentage of teams who through good fortune and willingness to tank have formed miniature empires that last short periods of time, with the exception of Detroit. If we try to extrapolate a rule from Detroit that results in Empire, I'd be surprised. A lot of good fortune involved and not really a "model" all franchises could potentially follow.
Give us the same basic economic framework as MLB, and we'd be the Yanks year in, year out.
