You might want to specify what exactly you are talking about here. The 1961 Sports Broadcasting Act deals specifically with a limited antitrust exemption for pooling television rights. Congress has not done anything with regards to expanding antitrust exemptions for professional sports with regards to labor issues, in fact the opposite as in 1998 they removed the aspects of baseball's antitrust exemption dealing with labor.
