This is insane.
The Leafs only "have to pay" revenue sharing because THEY VOTED TO so they could make more money in a cap system.

It's not dramatically unfair. It's a system that gives THEM more money.

Your Leafs voted to aide other teams so they could pocket more profits.

Your beef isn't with the league, it's with the Leafs. They choose a system that would make more teams able to compete with them financially, decrease their ability to spend to win, gave them an excuse to jack up prices (which you're falling for), and pocket millions more in profits rather than re-investment.

How is it unfair to someone who has a vote and votes in favor of it?
