CBS's Ken Berger has an interesting quote on small markets by David Stern of the NBA.
"I think we're working hard to eradicate the small-market designation," Stern said. "When Green Bay is in the Super Bowl with Pittsburgh or Indianapolis, nobody says, 'Oh my, a small-market team,' because the rules that they have allow everyone to compete. And that's what we now have under our new collective bargaining agreement. It's not about the market size. It's not about the money. It's about the management. ... Each of our teams has been put together in a different way under our rules."
