3. Interesting Point
Edited on Sat Nov-05-05 09:16 PM by freesqueeze
But I would answer, neither. The NFL does all the things that you mention but they also have complete control over all the franchises. The franchise owners "own" a certain number of players (humans.) The players are not allowed, unless permission is granted by their owner, to go and work for a different franchise.

I would call it more of a feudal system, but these guys are making too much money to complain.


When will the multi-millionaire players stand up to the tyranny of the multi-billionaire owners?

A pox on your 4 or 5 houses each.
