Some of the most popular material that I (here, here, here, and here), or others such as Pete Toms and Matthew Coller at the Business of Sports Network have covered has been on salary caps in sports, namely, MLB’s.
I’m against it for a number of reasons, but that doesn’t mean I don’t feel that some other method of restraining high spenders (namely, the Yankees) can’t be done outside of a hard cap system (see Reasons for Not Having a Salary Cap in MLB are Numerous).
But, what are others saying? Here’s a handful of quotes:
“Having the largest payroll doesn’t automatically mean you’re going to win. We’ve seen that time and time again. Thankfully, we had some payroll come off of our books, and we were able to use that money, make some good decisions, and get players who were able to improve our team.” - Hal Steinbrenner
“If we start getting refunds from the [luxury tax and revenue-sharing] checks we’ve been writing, then we’ll take those kind of complaints seriously.” -
