Ultimately fans of the teams who keep the lights on in this league will ran out of patience and just watch on tv and in a gate driven league that the kind of stuff that could topple the whole house of cards.

Isn't that the situation we have now with the cap? The only difference would be that instead of the owners of those teams making double-digit profits they would be making single-digit profits. It would have zero effect on the fans, or prices.

I'm sure those teams would not be happy giving up those profits, but I doubt very much they would throw in the towel and aim to "just break even". They're still making profits, are they not? Why would they want to give that up??
