So I'm just as in favor of saying sayonara to Columbus and NYI as to any other franchise - including Florida, but thanks regardless for presuming to know what I "trust" and "think". Nice rant.
He has a point though.

Contracting the 4 lowest income earners doesn't fix the income disparity problem. It just moves the total revenue of the League up on paper. Yet the money that the League was actually earning did not change. All that changed was negative expenditures being removed. So the salary cap will increase without an actual increase in revenue, and we are back at the problem of having several teams that can not afford to pay the salary cap.
