Not sure how many of you caught this, but earlier this year, a US judge ruled that the MLBpa couldn’t charge websites for the use of statistics, something all the league unions wants to do. Anyway, lots of folks thought that this would have put an end to the battles between fantasy sites and the leagues.
Apparently not. The NFLpa has apparently not being playing nicely with CBSsports.com, going so far as to allegedly threaten retribution if CBSsports even tried to do anything to protect their legal rights. Rather then wait for that to happen, CBSsports has filed suit against the NFLPA to seek the right to, in essence use the stats for free.
This should be very interesting to watch from afar. Another loss to the unions should kill the issue once and for all. A win by the union and, well, all bets are off.
