Contraction is a non-starter.

With a fixed cap, and in the absence of revenue sharing, you'll always have between one third and one half of the teams losing money, regardless of whether there are 10, 30, or 50 teams.

For example, if you go from 30 teams to 26 teams, the cap would rise because you got rid of the weakest markets, and then teams 23 though to 26 would be in trouble.
