The teams that are "hardliners", and we really don't know who they are, because Snider has been a hawk in the past as has Jacobs, and even Ilitch to some extent, are not all failures. Most likely they understand the economic reality of the situation.
Thankfully, fans from big market teams, that for some reason love to pay top dollar for the crap sandwich their GM serves up year after year, don't have much of a say in all this.
I agree, which is why the league is headed down the toilet.
Once they wake up and realize they should create a system that benefits the haves and not the have nots, they will have a more profitable league.
