rather melodramatic. I dont think the op and certainly not I are calling for anything overly draconian, just a mild slap on the wrist will suffice, and if that means "no strike, no lockout & Binding Arbitration" statutes be crafted & created, then so be it. That the leagues recognize the enormous responsibilities that they have, honour their covenants with municipal & state/prov authorities who in many cases provide them with the platforms upon which they exist; the countless 1000's of smaller businesses & charities who rely upon them for their very existence & so on & so forth. Yes, its anathema to all one might hold Dear in terms of the democratic process, however, these are not "private businesses" in the natural Darwinian sense of the term at all. Entirely different animals, many owing their very existences to taxpayer largesse, using & abusing their positions of ownership to extract concessions & direct subsidies from public vaults.
