Those lower team's revenue is actually slowing the cap's growth. Remove them (or increase their revenue) and the cap goes up.

If you want a model where no one needs RS, then ask to go back to the pre-cap days where each team could spend as much or as little as they wanted. But with a cap floor that dictates what teams MUST spend, then having RS to assist them to get to the floor is also required. Remember, Toronto, Montreal, etc all make millions each time they play these other teams.
I dont recall saying I wanted a cap system
