Pro Football, Unlike Baseball, Is Based On Socialism – Yes, Socialism!

The big, rich, all-American NFL has a little secret – and it’s called socialism! Here’s why.NFL

By Brandon Weber (upworthy.com) from a post* originally entitled A Comedian Just Realized Something Kind Of Amazing About The NFL (That It Would Probably Deny).

Ever wonder why so many of the most successful NFL teams are from cities you’ve barely even heard of – places like Green Bay and Pittsburgh – while the most successful baseball teams are from huge, rich, world-famous cities like New York and San Francisco? One word, folks – socialism! Yep, you heard that right – socialism!

Football, the most red-blooded, all-American, do-or-die, love-it-or-leave-it sport there is was founded on a concept so “un-American,” it would make Ronald Reagan turn over in his grave. Here’s how it works:

  • In baseball, each team essentially operates as its own business so some teams — usually the ones from bigger cities with more fans — are richer than others, and the rich teams can spend money on better players, which leads to more championships, which leads to more TV and concession revenue, which leads to even more money and more championships. It’s every man for himself.
  • In football, it’s exactly the opposite. The 32 teams in the NFL share revenue evenly, and no one team can spend more on players than any other. This leads to much more competitive balance and, some would argue, a better game. It’s “We’re all in this together.”
