Football exciting and entertaining? While it occasionally holds my interest, it is nowhere near baseball, IMO. Nothing else is fair, why should baseball be "fair," too? To me the football season is about as exciting as rolling a pair of dice--and about as random. Time to play pin the tail on the Superbowl winner! OK, put your blindfolds on!
I like that in baseball, if teams spend wisely and manage talent wisely, they can succeed, but if they don't it's not because it's "some other team's turn to win," but, rather, it's because the team itself failed. No need to keep things "fair"--if a team wins in baseball, it's because they were truly the better team, not because God shook his Magic 8-Ball and decided that to keep things "fair" the Seahawks should win it all.
I hope baseball doesn't start going the way of the "turnstile" NFL.
(BTW, the same thoughts hold true for me with fantasy football and fantasy baseball.)
