Did anyone see the 60 Minutes piece on the NFL last Sunday. It was a high level view of how the NFL operates. It regulates the league by sharing the revenue across all teams to ensure the viability of all. It also arbitrates any disputes between owners and plays and basically plays the middle man that ensure the success of the league of a whole. They also have a congressional exemption to operate as a monopoly.
I found it interesting from the point of view that it represents capitalist interest the owners, employees and the public and thought that if we could bring the best feature of it's organizational model to bear on the public arena then we would all be the better for it.
