How does football, baseball and basketball contracts play out? Major Leagues baseball is easily a pro-player agreement backed by one of this countries most powerfull and best unions and make absurb amounts of money while holding no responsibilty to what they can inject onto their bodies. But how much freedom do they really have? I know that the NFL probably has the most revenue, well either them or baseball, and despite that they have a hard cap and few luxuries and their contracts are I believed are not guarantee. At least not most of them But that's because the players have truly a moron as their president. Is this what the new hockey CBA will resemble the closest? And the NBA probably has the best commissoners in sports, he saved this league in the earlier 80's when five teams were on the verge of closing down shop and has turned it into multi multi million dollar sport with a cap and yet enough room that the players make ungod like money and get to keep their jobs no matter what, even if they go smacking around the customers. How is this one structured? I'm trying to figure where the NHL should stand compared to the other big three, or should I say much bigger three mainly due to each sports TV contracts and hockey being quite less when all is compared. And a issue that automatically favors the owners in this fight and could make a comparison to the other three real difficult.
