They then get the better draft picks, however, through either bad scouting or bad development or both, they continue to faulter, the team never thrives to attract fans, they don't make money. It is a trickle down effect. The talent pool has thinned out because of the 30 teams. And the smaller market teams don't put the right money or enough money into player development. Its stupid. We'll have another lockout in 8 years if contraction doesn't happen
I think that's some of what the proposed Industry Growth Fund would address, along with the minimum in health and locker room standards.
