Kick in the Door

A federal judge ruled in favor of Maurice Clarett [1] yesterday, stating that the NFL’s policy prohibiting young players from entering the draft violates anti-trust laws. The NFL will appeal the decision but it’s likely to stand. I’m not especially fond of Mike Lupica’s work anymore–though I grew up on the stuff–but I think he hits the nail on the head [2] this morning. Curt Flood’s name is sure to be mentioned in relation to this case. If anyone catches an especially interesting Flood analogy, I’d appreciate it if you could e-mail the link to me.
