…makes me ponder some things:
- keep the lottery but level the odds. effectively solves the tanking problem
- league subsidized *player* bonus for bad teams that reach certain achievement milestones, such as winning more games than last year, etc. this works in two ways: provides incentive for players to play-to-win & attract free-agents looking for bigger payout.
the main concept here is to never reward tanking, provide more incentives for the underachievers to perform and less for the already good teams. winning games should hold more merit for the jets n brows than they do for teams such as the patriots, and should be rewarded more by the league
