I would have thought that the critical issue would be around restricted competition for labour. That would be the purpose of the merger - to prevent the worker from offering his employment to any one of the 30 teams. That is where big time sports runs into anti-trust problems. That and the fact the league erects barriers to entry.
None of the arguments raised address these issues.
