Six signs parity is dead in NFL - Kerry J. Byrne - SI.com He makes a lot of good points, especially when it comes to passing. Rules that favour passing have made the NFL a more exciting league, but it also means that you need a good QB to succeed and there are only so many. Teams without a star QB lose and lose badly. However his last point is a terrible one. You only have to look sports leagues all over the world that have no salary cap and you see an unbalanced league. The English Premier league has had a grand total of 4 different winners since 1992. Yes, that's 4 teams in 18 seasons. There may be have and have nots in the NFL, but is that really as bad as one team spending more on one player than lesser teams can spend in 3 or 4 years? Money is definately not the answer. Removing the salary cap is not the answer. The only thing that cripples bad teams is the ridiculous high salaries of top picks.
