With these CBA negotiations , do you think the government should be involved at all? They are beginning to sound like they own the NFL itself.

Uh, no. Let the market place determine the result. If anyone should be turning the screws it's the tv market.

The government believes it owns the economy, so they will interfere with any aspect of it that they can.

Just things you hear from Congress. Heard one mention tax breaks for the NFL would be reviewed.

See the Sports Broadcasting Act of 1961. The owners invited the government in a long time ago.
