Really? Elite players alone do not make a team. I would say the presence of the so-called "scrubs" creates the ability to form a team and a league, thus giving the "elite" players a forum in which todisplay their skills.

Interestingly enough, this "union" does more to help the elite than it does to hlep the scrubs who don't see the same benefits in terms of free agency, long term contracts and big salaries. It kind of goes against the grain of a true union. It is a bunch of elitists who are advancing their cause on the back of the average player.
