    The MLB has a luxury tax which doesn't deter the big spenders to splurge on free agents. The NFL is much better off since it implemented the cap, it's no coincidence the Cowshîts haven't been able to buy any championships since.

    The NFLs  no matter how great a small market team is managed they can not compete with larger market teams in the long run.Yes a year here or there but long term the big market teams will buy their players

    The NFL cap made real changes in the game,immediately killing franchises like San Francisco and Dallas so that other teams could have a chance to win.

    MLB's cap is a joke.

  • I think salary caps are a crutch for poorly managed teams; the luxury tax (MLB's model) is the lesser of two evils.

    The hard cap makes more sense for the teams' financial health.  It also makes for better parity.

    The MLB is a league of haves and have-nots where the only way to win if you're small-market is to build a team, win before guys get to free agency, then blow it up and hope to catch prospects on a rebound and suck for a while and then be good again years down the line.  And God Help You if you make a mistake in the timing or prospects because you can't keep any stars.

    Of the choices, I'll go with the NFL, since the MLB soft salary cap doesn't exist.
