I'm pretty sure the franchise owners try their hardest to recruit teams
that will win.  Professional sports teams aren't handicapping themselves to
arrange more equal matches.

You'd think an enterprising businessperson would go around recruiting all
of the highly qualified women who can't get work, or appropriate
remuneration, because of fears they'd outcompete men.  All that wasted
talent would be an opportunity to overturn established businesses and make
a bundle.
