Sports and the law intersect

This post from SCOTUS Blog is interesting on a number of grounds:  First, just the issue of whether to treat a sports league with franchises as a single entity. (By the way, soccer is not involved because MLS has a different structure than the NFL, MLB, or the NBA.) Second, it reminds us of the special legal status of major league baseball in the US.  Third, the writers included soccer as a major U.S. sport.  (As well they should--MLS, even with their mistakes, is as major as the NHL.)
