Balancing a drum-magged thompson would probably mean having to reduce the power and/or accuracy a lot, which would basically turn it into a spray cannon.

Also, the M1A1 can't use drum mags. ;)

Pre-M1 Thompsons (i.e. those capable of using drums) had much lower firing rates (think UMP), resulting in greater accuracy and slower use of ammunition, but a somewhat reduced effectiveness when using long bursts. Spray tactics rely on the inaccuracy of the weapon to do the aiming for the shooter; with a more accurate weapon, you need to make sure your shots are on target to make a kill. Hence, the 1928 is actually a more balanced weapon. Most of you have probably played Urban Terror; which do you consider more unbalanced, the MP5K, or the UMP-45?

You rely on inaccuracy for aiming? Do you also rely on drunkeness for driving? Cancer for cures? Contradictions for logical posts?

Spray tactics rely on a high rate of fire and the law of averages.

well a real mp5 k has about the range of a pistol, and the UMP-45 is a decent weapon in its own right, but you really there is nothing wrong with the Thompson, (would you rather have an M3 grease gun)

Yes, the law of averages. If you have an accurate weapon, all of the shots will land in the same area, whereas an inaccurate weapon will create a "beaten zone" that ensures that the target will be hit without need of more aiming than having the weapon pointed in the proper direction. MMGs rely on the concept for indirect fire. It's really just semantics.
