Because the size of the club and its revenues (largely driven by attendances) would make it impossible to build up a sufficient reserve to move from a £2.5m wage bill to one that would be required to compete in the Championship. The likely result would be a promotion followed by immediate relegation.Just to address a point directly, why would Accrington be less able to bridge the gap to the Championship ? They would have built up reserves in League One due to lower wage levels which would actually make it easier to bridge the gap. As it stands, they are in no position to even compete for the players to give them a chance to challenge for promotion.
A salary cap would reward clubs that are stable and well run, not simply those that have the biggest pockets.
