That is part of what Mike Brown and the Bills owner (Ralph Wilson?) were fussing about. The large market teams have a larger revenue stream plus some non-cap revenue streams that allow them to plunk down huge bonuses and to cap out with a smaller impact on the bottom line. Not sure if Brown's gripe is legit, but if that is indeed the case, it places a larger cap burden on smaller revenue teams just from a simple wages as a percent of sales perspective. Of course, Snyder hasn't exactly been spending on the right folks as mediocrity reigns under his system.
