    How has the MLL gotten away for this long with the players not unionizing? Has there ever been a effort by the players to get the PLPA involved?

    there has been rumbling on a union for the mll.
    but the difference was that the plpa began with the mill at its peak - cline/fritz were a promotion machine then. players realized that the gravy train the two were promoting was not falling to the players. russ and chris made had been their own worst enemy with their own words then. the gaits leveraged themselves right back and the union forced the mill into the nll.
    it would take rabil and a few others to force the issue. but rabil hardly needs the mll for $$ - can't stand him but he's a rich dude from playing lax. i don't see that militancy among the mll players. they experience the contraction before they could form a union. the plpa struck while the league was hot.
