“In light of MLB‘s stance to undermine election integrity laws, I have instructed my staff to begin drafting legislation to remove Major League Baseball’s federal antitrust exception.”

Rome needed the gladiatorial games to distract the people from the decline of the empire. We have sports for the same purpose.

leetnessmonster 6 points ago +6 / -0

No you shouldn't be embarrassed. Sports have been around for thousands of years, to simulate tribal warfare. It feels good when your team wins, and sucks when they loose but you feel a connection of like minded people (sports wise) screaming in unison for the same thing.

So no don't be ashamed of loving sports, its like being ashamed of eating food to satisfy hunger

Why should any sports league receive exemption from antitrust laws? Why shouldn't there be competition in baseball, football, basketball, etc.?

I still have no idea what retards came up with exemptions for all kinds of things for these sports leagues and why. They are entertainment not essential services and they are for profit corps worth billions.

SquiggyMcPepe 32 points ago +32 / -0

They have already taken massive losses over going woke but that doesn't matter to them because no matter what they will still be personally rich and if they have to burn down their own business to bring in their new world order then so be it. We really are at war with these people.

WU_HAN_FRU 17 points ago +17 / -0

Because back in the day, they paid key members of Congress 7 shitloads of money for an antitrust exemption.

Devildtails 7 points ago +7 / -0

The Supreme Court ruled on a case of first impression. Ruling written by Oliver Wendell Holmes and joined unanimously: The business of giving exhibitions of baseball is not interstate commerce.

"The antitrust exemption, first granted by an appeals court in 1922 and then unanimously affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court, holds that MLB is exempt from the Sherman Antitrust Act because it was a state-centric business and not subject to federal commerce laws."

MLB is one of the things that absolutely involveds commerce with several different states.

Meanwhile SCOTUS was holding local farmers that were not involved in interstate commerce, to the FEDERAL FUCKING COMMERCE CLAUSE:

Look what happens when they do something as minor as what Georgia did, a weak meet in the middle legislation to try to salvage any sort of voter integrity.

The entire culture and media attacks them endlessly, need to elect courageous conservative politicians who can withstand a week or two of outrage. That’s literally all it takes, they move on to the next thing. Unfortunately Woke Corp can’t figure that out.

All pro sports should be stripped of any special rights, indulgences or special treatment. Treat them like any other business. No non-profit status, no special deals, no special tax breaks

Now that the Baseball commissioner has become a politician he has to scower all the different state laws on elections so he doesn’t pick a state that has fair election laws already on the books like Texas or Florida. Arizona is going to get new laws also . So what will this idiot do now? Baseball is the one sport that needs fans to pay the players salaries so this stupid move is going to take the great pastime down the drain because baby boomers will stay away and young people don’t care for the game !

Oh, he'll write up the legislation - I believe that. I also know that it will never see the light of day in the House.

Honestly - and this will never happen, mind you - the best hope for this to get passed is to sneak it into one of the massive spending clusterfucks being rubber stamped by the reps.

ColonelTravis 5 points ago +5 / -0

Good. I was as big of a sports fan, as anyone. However, the age of American professional sports has to end. If you want to kneel for a white extermination organization, do it without an 8-figure salary. A large portion of the players are foreigners who would working on dirt farms, in the Caribbean, if it weren’t for the Americans, who gave them the lives of kings.

They exist to entertain us, not force laws or political ideologies. Guaranteed that many employees of MLB either do support voter laws in GA or straight up don't care or know enough to even have an opinion that's worth a damn. Add to that the people who feel they must 'stand with' to keep from being targeted by the MLB and you've got a rogue group of unelected people who are acting like demigods who can create laws themselves. They can't. And they SHOULDN'T be letting themselves be used for that purpose either.

I found out MLB and Jeff Duncan both are comical. They are bad actors; unfortunately audiences are stupid and will enjoy their performance.

I never watched MLB. I don't support corporate sports.

Someone should remind Jeff Duncan his vote on Jan 6.

Election integrity? Never heard about this term.
