OK, you're not a Yank fan but Bosox, next closest. Might it help those trying to keep pace with the likes of those teams?

The quality of ELITE teams. Hasn't seem to hurt the NFL's popularity
<That, my friend, is communism. The veneer of fairness covering the inescapable fact that you're just oppressing everyone.>
Oppressing ELITE teams (who have done a bit of oppressing themselves)
<This is the big leagues. If you can't compete here, that's *on you* not on the rest of us.>

Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.
