I agree rev sharing would help but you think rich teams who keep getting burned by these lockouts want to give up profits to keep teams charging pennies for tickets in the black?
Seem to me like poor flaky US based teams/fans want cheap tickets, a competitive team, and profits for their failing owners.
Reminds of those people who treat their family like crap but are nice to random strangers on the street. They treat loyal fans like crap while bend over backwards to keep the flaky ones buying $30 tickets.
Southern US markets get all the gimmicks, whether its MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL.
