Re: Steelers players vote to decertify
Hmmm, not sure this is about individual lawsuites filed by the players. The NFL used the argument that the players were unionized to avoid anti-trust laws. If the players are no longer unionized, the NFL can no long claim they are within those anti-trust laws. Now you have the federal gov't pushing the league to measures that demonstrate a level playing field for the players to negotiate with the league. So the league will have to determine which is worse for their business: the gov't or the union. Personally, I'd rather negotiate with the NFLPA than with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barney Frank and the Obama administration.
