A Reddit post highlights the childishness of American legislative bodies with regards to professional sports. These trials get the kind of attention from legislative bodies that should be reserved for government scandals. Even John McCain fell prey to this in the last decade when he proposed a Federal commission on boxing. Why not a Federal NASCAR Commission then? A Federal Video Game Commission?
Professional sports are not government agencies. We don't need the Feds or anyone else wasting our money and attention on regulating them.
