52. i thought that was an attempt to lure the euros to the nfl..
in any event, my response about minor leagues is an aside to a du post and of course has nothing to do with the laws. we have quite a few aspiring lawyers at du, i would like to see a legal case made for this ruling, since the sports world already lost this in major league baseball and the nba. just because these owners can't control themselves, is no reason to disregard the law. this whole thing is a monopolistic restraint of trade.
