I mean, if you're reducing the argument to that, you don't have much of a leg to stand on.
Clearly these two teams went above and beyond.
Not to mention nobody would ever suggest that being LESS competitive (through spending less money) in one season would actually GIVE a team a competitive advantage for the next 4-5 years down the road.
Above and beyond what? There were no rules in place so how could they go above and beyond a rule that never existed.
