Dave was kind enough to give an interview over at Sports on Earth about a favorite topic – competitive balance. In case you’ve missed it, the idea that competitive balance is needed or even impacted by many of the rules is mostly a myth. Owners use the competitive balance flag to scare up policies that get them more money, but don’t often improve competitive balance. Dave does point out that a salary floor seems to help. However, many policies don’t actually force teams to spend more, so they don’t! It’s a long read but definitely worth it!
