try 1.

The NFL is the best league by far. Parity matters. Every game means something.

I love the NBA but the players have way too much leverage with how the league is ran. When the sport is defined by several key superstars that can dictate to teams what they want and when it kinda sucks. I wish the NBA had a hard cap and could franchise tag players.

I hate how NBA teams have like 0 control in their ability to retain their own players. All they can do is offer an extra year on a contract in a league where pretty much every high end deal is guaranteed w/ player options. WTF does that extra year matter.

Like how in the f*cking hell can the Pelicans ever hope to build a team to compete for a championship around Anthony Davis when Kevin Durant just decides to sign with a 73 win team? And then the fans blame AD for being a loser or the Pelicans for failing to surround him with talent.

The only way to win in the NBA is to get supremely lucky with draft picks. Meaningful free agency acquisitions are only on the table for a small handful of teams every year.

It's a broken system.

"Parity" in the NFL teams just means that there are a boatload of mediocre teams who aren't actually good. Also, the reason the NFL success is so volatile because injuries massively impact every season and careers are so short.

Meanwhile teams can barely keep their talent signed to a contract after their rookie deals because the NFL system barely values position players past their age 25/26 season. I'd much rather watch a player dominated league than this hot mess of a system where all the top players hold out because the cap makes it impossible to sign exciting stars to long-term deals and still win a title.

naw...Golden State is basically a lock next year. No reason to even watch anything.

the NFL is far from perfect...but last year with a back up QB winning it all gives every team a glimmer of hope, unlike the NBA

Even great former NFL players are saying they will not allow their kids to play football, as an example Bo Jackson: "If I had young kids, to be honest, and if they came and said, Dad, I want to play football, Id smack them in the mouth. No. No. Because if Id have known back then what I know now, to be honest with you, I probably would have taken a different path. I probably just would have played baseball".

Bo knows.

If parity is your focus hard to look past MLB...... 9 different teams in the WS this past 5 years..... 5 different champions.

America's pastime.
