Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News reports new NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith during his pre-election presentation to players last week, and again in his first post-election news conference, brought up the possibility of asking Congress to examine the league's tax-exempt status and its limited antitrust exemption if the owners don't bargain in good faith in upcoming negotiations for a new labor deal....

Re: NFLPA Head might seek Congressional help against owners
While the reasoning behind such a request may be noble, I've got to think that the last thing you want is congress' nose in the NFL.
The owners could turn it around on the players and have congress investigate them.
It has done wonders for MLB.
