    Revenue sharing is great for the NFL. It helps teams that are going through a bad period to ride it out. Just about every NFL team belongs where they are, except maybe Jacksonville.

    It is a bad idea for the NHL because there are too many teams in cities where they don’t belong and too many cities that don’t have one. If the NHL wants to make more money, stop putting NHL teams in cities that don’t like hockey.
