My Prodigal Son logic is that if you strengthen the worst team in the league, you strengthen the overall league. This means that the entire league becomes more competitive, because on any given day or night any team in the league can defeat any other team. A more competitive league increases consumer participation and media attention. The TV networks make more money from the advertisers because more people watch and attend the games, and the team owners increase their earnings; as a result, because the wealth of the league has grown, the players can successfully bargain for larger salaries.
