One of the TV announcers explained it. The NFL takes all the TV money, puts it into a big pot, then divides it "equally" among the teams. It's why, in any given year, any NFL team might win the Super Bowl. It's called working as a team and "sharing the wealth". But there are some MLB teams that will never play in the World Series because in baseball, it's every team (man) for himself. Some of those teams can't fill a stadium. They are merely "cannon fodder" for the "big" teams that have lots of money. It reminded me of the Republican view of America. Every man for himself and the rich are supposed get more. Because they're rich. Who cares about the team (country). It's every team (man) for himself.
