    It's only losing if you don't get paid.

    Does this decision undermine MLB's status?

      True, but they're pretty tight with the NFL (have been ever since they gave Tagliabue to the NFL and maybe before). I'm sure they're not happy about it.

      I'm also not sure how harmful the decision really is. I'm skeptical, but we'll see...

        I was wondering the same thing. Honestly, I hope it doesn't. This is 100% SWAG at this point, but it probably has something to do with the CBA.

          No. It probably should have, since the original exemption was based on an interpretation that hasn't been seen since the Great Depression, but it didn't. SCOTUS has said repeatedly they won't do it, either. It'll be up to Congress to remove it at this point.

            The NFLPA is saying the decision will influence future labor agreements, while the NFL doesn't see it extending that far. As a practical matter, I think the NFL is probably closer to the truth at this point. And the anti-trust matter still has to go back for trial, so "it ain't over til it's over!".

                Good news! The SCOTUS has sided with the rich and powerful again. It was touch and go for awhile, but in the end, wealth won out.

                        So next Monday is the last day to release decisions. The Chicago gun case should be decided, along with a couple other big ones.

                            I'm not saying it's the right decision or the wrong one since I haven't really read the law or the opinions. I'm just saying that when both of those camps agree on something, it's worth a look beyond face value.

                              Considering Ginsberg authored the decision and limited "honest services" to fraud and kickback issues, I would agree with your assessment. There are ton of white collar statutes in Title 18, and the honest services statute was bastardized by lazy DOJ careerists and political hacks. If you want to prosecute someone for wire fraud, securities violations or insider trading use the appropriate statutes you lazy ****s.

                                As expected, the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of McDonald in McDonald v. Chicago.
