That is not a good analogy.
It's important that the owners compete with each other as best they can. That means doing whatever you can within the rules to build a winning team. If a rule can be bent to get around the intended goal of the salary cap, then that rule should be fixed. They should not simply "hope" that everyone operates with the spirit of the salary cap in mind.
