You are not paying to prop other teams, you are paying MLSE, who, in turn, pays into a revenue sharing plan.
If there was no need for revenue sharing, i'm pretty sure MLSE wouldn't be passing the savings onto the fans.
There sure wasn't a ticket price reduction of 24% during the last lockout. MLSE will suckup every cent we as fans are willing give them even a glimpse of.

Edit: I really don't mind revenue sharing if it wasn't so rediculous like the 30M Phoenix needs. Without a TV deal like the NFL it puts too much onus on individual teams who have money.
