You're right they do. It's a financially winning formula that they have perfected. It's also a reason why they don't have to win. I mean can you see this kind of futility accepted in NY, LA or even Boston? Even in their 86 year drought they had some really good teams. Sometimes I get ruffled when criticized but in this case if you or anyone else thinks I'm nuts or wrong about it, I accept it. It's not a popular stance.
