Can you prove this?

The Boston Red Sox make more money in one sold out game than the San Diego Padres make in more than 3 sold out games. (source: http://fancostexperience.com/pages/fcx/fci_pdfs/8.pdf)

The Lakers make more money in one sold out game than the Detroit Pistons make in slightly less than 5 sold out games. (source: http://seatgeek.com/blog/nba/nba-tic...10-11-averages)

The New York Jets make more money in one sold out game than the Cleveland Browns make in slightly less than 3 sold out games. (souce: http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/201...rage_tick.html)

It seems that such amazing economic disparity between the "haves" and the "have nots" of each league is very common. When compared to the other North American sporting leagues, the Toronto vs. Phoenix disparity does not seem that out of place.
