The NFL has figured it out, which is why they've always had significant revenue sharing--- qualify that by saying--- if you want to be a BIG league in the US with 30+ teams, you have widely disparate market potentials. The only way these teams can compete with each other on a level footing is if revenue is redistributed and shared.
