What's not "level" is the underperforming & uncommitted sharing revenues
I hate when people talk about the playing field not being level. Make a commitment to excellence, drop the cheesy ass excuses, and play big boy ball.
Cheaters? Been around decades before either of us was born - see Huey P Long sending a limo to Shreveport to transport a HS kid to Baton Rouge so Huey could splain to him why he was going to be a Bayou Bengal.
If you are well enough coached, nothing is more fun than to walk on the field and kick the shit out of a bunch of cheaters.
