yeah I think tanking is a more organic process. Eventually players just stop buying in that they can win with a certain regime.
In the NBA they are guaranteed contracts and even role players are getting paid handsomely...plus a lot of those guys just seem to be collecting a paycheck anyway. In the NFL you can be gone tomorrow. If I'm a 4th cornerback, wr, rotational front 7 guys, or vet trying to get one last bit of guaranteed money there is no shot in hell I'm tanking.
