Nobody watches or plays baseball anymore. The league is dying a slow death. I'll give you one guess as to who was responsible for the downfall of baseball.
I'm not saying MLB has the best model but they are successful at having just a bunch of wealthy franchises. They are far more successful than the NBA and the NHL for example. In my opinion the NFL has a great blueprint how to manage a sport league but again it cannot be compared to the NHL because the NHL doesn't have that big influx of cash coming in. The little the most successful franchises make, they are not interested to share it with abysmal markets and that's understandable.
