THat would never happen. They have grown this product into something that produces profit now and it took them a damn long time to do it. They would endure and keep that money flowing. Money makes the world go round.

@FrontRowBrian @BJM_13 Everyone I have talked to and personally trust have categorically denied GSP's involvement. So looks bogus. Sorry!

Not to mention they are easily corruptible.

But the executives/CEOs are not. Those two corruptions are supposed to balance each other.

Read more about Players Unions in sports. This isn't some union working th docks in Baltimore.

Before the union’s inception, NBA players did not receive the wide-ranging privileges and protections that exist today. There was no pension plan, no per diem, no minimum wage, no health benefits and the average player salary was $8,000. It was not until 1964, when the NBA All-Star team threatened not to play in the first televised All-Star game, that the players gained their first victory. As a result of the resolve of the union’s early leaders, including NBA Hall of Famers Bob Cousy, Tom Heinsohn and Oscar Robertson, the owners finally recognized the NBPA as the exclusive, certified labor union representative of all NBA players. Since then, there have been dramatic changes, and the NBPA continues to evolve and adapt to the ever-changing challenges facing NBA players.

He definitely made them lots of money but I don't think there's any such thing as "too much to get whacked"

People are so goddamned brainwashed when it comes to unions. If you're a working man like myself, unions are a good thing. Because I work In a union I make roughly 20 bucks an hour compared to 12 or even 10 if I didn't. Plus benefits and 4 weeks off a year.

Big companies and corporations need unions for the workers.

Unions would benefit MMA as a whole.

No kidding, it amazes me the anti-labor, and pro big business attitude, especially after how the world has fallen apart recently. Yes, people, it is labor corruption we need to worry about.

Neither is supposed to be, that's why everything is shit and in the end the empolyees suffer the consequences.
