Playoffs between small market teams get low ratings, like the New Jersey
Nets/San Antonio Spurs championship game. But a lot people inside sports
seem to resent big market teams (Yankees, LA Lakers) consistently
dominating the play-offs, although audiences seem to want dynasties from
big cities.

Is there an inherent problem here? Is it inevitable that there is a
conflict between people inside sports who want to see some diversity among
the winners? Is big league team sports inherently biased towards the
dynasty model? Are there viable business models for team sports that could
produce a wider range of winners?
