On the other hand there is no salary cap for the owners or the coaches. Seldom do we hear of how much money they make. The other owners are definitely not socialists with respect to their business practices.
After discussing his documentary about sports, Dave Zirin talked about other social issues and sports. After 15 minutes he explained why he rooted for the Packers in Super Bowl XLV (in a tweet he says he prefered them because it's a matter of ethics and predicted a score of 29-24). I have nothing against their organization either. The Steelers are a business which make them neither evil nor morally superior.
Zirin's prediction was on the money with the score (31-25 Packers) and he called it "people's victory" in his column in The Nation. He chides the Fox Network for not discussing Green Bay's unique ownership while honoring Ronald Reagan on his 100th birthday that day and how both cities suffered during his Presidency. He also chided Fox for not showing the Rooney family and called them " the most celebrated ownership family in the NFL." Kudos to him for recognizing this fact.
It's always a leap to attribute the outcome of one game to organizational things like a salary cap and ownership structure. These things affect the long term success of an organization. So many factors come into play on any given Sunday such as injuries, Ben Roethlisberger's 2 interceptions that led to touchdowns (I do not condone his past off the field behavior and I hope he's learned his lesson from his suspension), and motivation. It was a fun game and it's time to return to more mundane issues.
Sally Jenkins of The Washington Post has a good column about the excesses of the Dallas Stadium at a time when most state and local governments are strapped for cash and 1,300 fans were denied seats to the game after paying about $900 each for tickets. I'm glad I watched it at home.
