Baseball was the #1 sport in the country at the time of the Fehr lead strike. Since then it was passed by Football in dramatic fashion and is on par with Basketball. I don't know what to tell you if you cannot see the stark change that the sport underwent since that point.

Do you really believe that the drug testing issue wasnt being held up by the players union?

You seem to be content with letting Fehr lead the players through another season where they'd be on an expired CBA despite what he did with the baseball strike.
