This has nothing to do with your analogy. The Players are speaking about Owners who own the team and the arena and charge artificially high rents to the team in order to give a bigger expense and have larger losses. That is simply not fair.
Hehe can't believe that flew over my head. So the owners may be involved in some illegal transfer pricing scheme.
Still, too many people involved. If the related party tv networks gave the lowest tv deal to the teams then other networks might cry foul.
