But let's be clear, "sharing" is not the same as "redistributing." If even the poorest teams put something into the pot, and even the richest teams take something out, those figures for MLB and the NFL appear artificially high. The NHL doesn't "share" in that sense, it makes a straight transfer from rich to poor.
