Again, you claimed that it HAS to be equal for teams to get TV revenue. It doesn't. This isn't a discussion about whether uneven splits are fair, it's a discussion about whether teams (in cycling, NFL, NASCAR, tiddlywinks...) get TV revenue. They do.If it's not it will drive fans away. Why do you think the NFL and the other major US based (north American based) sports ensure that TV revenue is equal? It is to ensure the leagues are doing what they can for equality within the sport to keep the fans. If it's not equal it drives the fans away and will eventually drive the sport out of buisness, but if you think driving the sport out of business is a good idea, well that your choice. Yes national TV contract revenue is split in MLB as well. It's just that in MLB due to the number of games large market teams have a much higher revenue source than small market teams, which in some cases ARE driven out of the sport.
