Generally, money buys championships in every sport. Occassionally, you’ll have a low budget team win a championship against a high budget team, i.e. Anaheim Angels last year in baseball. You’ll also have low budget teams play against high budget teams but for the most part, the team with the money will usually beat the lower budget teams.
I hate that is that way…but unless they institute a salary cap in the rest of the sports as Football did, then it will remain this way.
