Saints QB Weighs In On NFL Anti-Trust Case

Saints QB Drew Brees, who serves on the executive board of the NFL Player’s Associatiopn, weighs in on the looming Supreme Court decision in the American Apperal vs. NFL case in this
Washington Post article.

In the article, Brees argues that every team competes against one another for players and merchandise and fans and that a rulingĀ  for the league would hurt the players in free agency and contract negotiations.

Brees goes on to say

“At the moment, the NFL Players Association and team owners are negotiating over a new collective bargaining agreement, and the threat of a lockout looms for the 2011 season. Historically, players have made significant gains, such as free agency, by challenging the NFL on antitrust grounds. If the Supreme Court rules that the league’s 32 organizations constitute a single entity that is exempt from antitrust laws, players will lose this important leverage.”
