It's a union that should not be so dis functional. Both sides rely on one another.
This is so wrong. The players are being paid millions to play a GAME. If anything, they should be humbled by the fact that this is a job millions consider their dream. Let's take eSports for example: players get to play video games (ex. Starcraft) with a lucky few getting salary and/or winning prize money. This money comes primarily from sponsors and/or gaming companies, with ad revenue coming from streaming as well. Without the money that is injected, eSports would not survive/exist. Does that mean eSports would survive with just the players? No, because in the grand scheme of things, these things cost money (and it doesn't just fall from the sky).
