Because share price is based off of each team’s unique win total and "lesser" teams have lower win totals than "better" teams.
Is a large-market team like the New York Knicks valued more than a small-market team like the Oklahoma City Thunder? How about the popularity of the team, like the Cowboys or Yankees versus some of the newer franchises?
No. In FANDEX, the value of a team is not impacted in any way by the geography nor the real or perceived popularity of the team that drives up or down values in the sport’s business marketplace.
Can FANDEX be impacted by what happens on Wall Street?
No. Though based on real stock markets, FANDEX is not tied in any way to existing stock market
Are win totals ever changed after they're set?
Only in the event a win total is significantly reduced by a marquee player getting injured or suspended before the season has begun.
