The NFL has had revenue sharing, significant revenue sharing for 50+ years.

The model that they operate under today is a significant reason as to WHY there is such a disparity revenue.

The NFL's model breeds pairity. The NHL's model of revenue sharing doesn't do that. The proposed salary cap WITH the increased Revenue Sharing will still not do that long term.

We are talking about a business model that MLB, NBA and NHL should all strive to achieve.
