They won 3 in the 90s total, and before that, their last one was in 1978 I believe. Point being, it's NOT like they are winning every year. So this "buying championships" argument is kind of ridiculous don't you think? What, 6 championships in 30 years??? Yeah, we are really screwing the rest of the league.....
I absolutely LOVE that they DON'T win every year. It's ironic. They pay the payroll tax every year since the league started that because they are always millions and millions over the 'cap', and yet they get beat.

I guess that's not the point. They are TRYING to buy championships. I love that they fail, but they offset the balance. How many teams lost good players to Yankee dollars because the Yankees can afford to pay that fee for going 10, 20, 30 million beyond the soft 'cap' for that given year?

On a level financial playing field the Yankees would be no more than the Nationals...ok, well, that's taking it a little too far with all the tradition in New York, but you get the point. LOL

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!
