The world of professional sports is not a typical/normal real world business. I don't know why you would try and apply supply/demand here.

It's entertainment/sports with a union.......negotiating for how many people are going to sleep in a 4 or 5 star hotel when they travel out of town and get a stipend for meals.... yada,yada, yada.'s not real world economics. I don't get a tax payer subsidized place of employment, do you?
