If the intended goal is to ensure parity between small and large market teams, I fail to see how a hard cap will help. If you fix the salaries that each team can offer, then the deciding factor will be things that the large markets have a leg up on, like endorsements, entertainment, etc.

Also, the owners want the hard cap to protect themselves from themselves. They could easily have a de facto hard cap if they were all willing to stick to the goals they proclaim, but they aren't.
