    Football is just silly useless entertainment. It makes no sense to exempt them from any laws. If the league fails, who cares.?

    How did this ever get started anyway ? Answer - congressmen took bribes like they do on every issue.

    With this, I agree 100%! No sports league should have an exemption. We need insure that congress pulls it, and make it part of the 2018 midterms.

    The game has got so corrupt now i would be the first one to celebrate its demise. their anti trust exemption for sure needs to be revoked,it would stop all these evil greedy asshole owners from moving their teams constantly all the time.they need to have the same kind of anti trust laws baseball has.the A'S trued to move to san jose but a judge ruled against them because of their laws thay have,you dont see baseball teams moving.they used to yeah but that stopped decades ago.:thup: if the NFL had the same kind of anti trust laws baseball has,no way in hell would the chargers have left SD and the raiders talking of going to fucking vegas.:mad:

    As long as the government is not participating in the market, I agree.

    The government IS participating in the market: at least by allowing colleges and state universities to be farm teams for the NFL. That should totally stop, at once. NO football at colleges! They just hire criminals who rape the coeds; they pay them illegally with incredible corruption --- same with basketball. Colleges should never have filled this role and it should stop cold. No more sports, no more Title IX. This is all crazy.

    Colleges should not teach any entertainment and along with sports, that includes literature and music and all of the arts. STEM only.
