A Sports Labor Note


The contrast with NFL owners so comically evil that even the most ludicrous lickspittles won’t defend them seems to have caused some sportswriters to defend the NBA lockout as the moderate, reasonable, thinking-man’s union-busting. But this is nonsense, and journalists who take league-distributed profit-and-loss figures as face value would be ashamed of themselves if they were capable of such a thing. I’m also amused by writers who rail against overpaid players but seem to assume than owners are entitled to rising franchise values and yearly profits no matter how poorly their teams are run.
