In a letter to the NFL, two U.S. Senators have suggested it might be time for Congress to reconsider the NFL’s antitrust exemption, given the league’s decision to put pro games on its own channel, the NFL Network. Or, in the Senators’ own words, as excerpted by the Associated Press:
“Now that the NFL is adopting strategies to limit distribution of game programming to their own networks … Congress may need to reexamine the need and desirability of their continued exemption from the Nation’s antitrust laws.”
