This chapter presents a detailed explanation of the deficiencies within antitrust law that stop it from giving adequate protection to sports fans. It studies alternatives to the direct government regulation of sports league business operations and shows why it is believed to be a lesser alternative to the structural reform proposed in the book. The chapter includes a review of previous work that proposed radical restructuring of the sports leagues that require many competing leagues. It examines the possibility of a government regulation that a Congress amenable to sports fans would consider despite the adoption of the two-fold proposal. This chapter concludes with a section on the need to be vigilant when using present antitrust principles.
