There's also the very real possibility that the non-statutory labor exemption gets blown up in court. That exemption is basically the backbone for all of the cartel-like stuff that North American sports leagues get away with: Drafts, restrictions on free agency, salary caps, etc., that would normally be laughed out of court because they are so ridiculously anti-competitive.
This going away would be terrible - terrrible - for NA sports leagues. Just more reason to be pro-strong union!
Even in the darkness every color can be found
