My point was that you have to separate being in a good market and having terrible management. Don Maloney does as good a job as any GM in the league, the team spends least money and they still lose the most money in the league. Simply because they were in a weak market to start with and for some insane reason moved to a suburb

Meanwhile, many of the richest teams in the league have made the most bad decisions.

Parity is fine if it enables well run smaller teams to compete with less well run teams with more financial muscle.
