Inquiry Into Professional Sports: Hearings Before the House Select Committee on Professional Sports, Ninety-fourth Congress, Second Session ....
U.S. Government Printing Office, 1976 - Electronic books
"The root causes of much of this turmoil appear to touch on a number of important Federal concerns: The Federal tax treatment of sports enterprises, the labor-management relations problems of professional athletes and their employers, the impact of Federal antitrust policy on sports business operations, and the effect of the congressional policy on sports broadcasting, to name just a few. But perhaps more important is the long-range deleterious effect this distorted picture of athletic endeavors will have on the perspective of the American sports fan, and I want to emphasize the sports fan because I think that is primarily the area in which this committee should confine its interests and concern"--Page 2.
