It's an entirely different topic, but a lot of the resentment of unions in the U.S. starts with public employee unions and their political power, which is a big conflict of interest. There is a good deal of unhappiness that remains regarding the auto bailout as well where the auto unions were "made whole" and investors who legally should have been first in line got the shaft.

I think the people here that don't like Fehr think that he ruined MLB (I happen to agree) and that his proposals on behalf of the players aren't based in economic reality. I also don't think he minds taking this into the courts because he hates the idea of a salary cap. Again, he is not being realistic.
