I believe favouring millionaire athletes is a political non starter as far as tax breaks go. I think the answer is to have 30 adjustment multipliers that tailor the cap to a team's tax jurisdiction.

Hopefully global warming will come through for us and make the local climate like SoCal soon as well.
