NASCAR vs. the NFL

This AntitrustProf Blog post cites an article that theorizes that sports leagues with more integration like NASCAR are more efficient than those with a bunch of independents, like the NFL.

The article is called Antitrust and Inefficient Joint Ventures: Why Sports Leagues Should Look More Like McDonald's and Less Like the United Nations. Now, so far as I know, the NFL has lost just about every antitrust case brought against it - even the USFL got their $1 award.
