And that fundamental issue would require allowing free markets to overrule artificial anti-competitive activity.

Not every market is capable of bringing in the bacon.

But I disagree wholly with this idea that the rich markets are a problem. The only reason the NHL can fund their own investments in Sunbelt franchises are due to the proceeds from successful NHL teams.
