I agree, there is a place for free market capitalism, but in sports it benefits everyone to have a salary cap to keep teams competitive.
Take for Example Yankees vs Devil Rays, one team is sold out every single game and the other never have more then a few thousand in the seats.
in the NFL lets take to Pats vs the Raiders, although one team is very good and the other isn't they both sell out and thous would generate more overall revenue for the league.
