It's not like the $ the Yank owners are spending on payroll is coming out of their personal funds.
Meh, that's just an excuse. JC, our owner is reported as not even spending all that he gets from the league through the luxury tax. If he does, that's all he's spending.
Either way, I guess I'm not going to blame Gotham because they have a lot of people and many of them follow their local team. If the Royals would prime the pump and spend a LOT more for a few years, perhaps we'd be super awesome and the smaller town would show up in more force, and the local, regional and national following would grow. That being said, I'd love a salary cap, but I don't think we'll ever see it, too many large-market teams like it the way it is because more often than not, it makes them competitive.
The bottom line is Wal-Mart won't do that. He's not that much of a man, he's Wal-Mart and being a cheap-ass in ingrained in his non-resident owner DNA. And again, not living here makes it all the simpler to **** over the fans. Just like another team we all know and love.
