They can’t refuse. Both the NFL and MLB took anti-trust exemptions in exchange for government oversight.

That is the battle the I am saying the leagues should pick. Dare Congress to pull the exemptions and shut down the leagues. NO politician wanting to be reelected is going to have his/her name associated with breaking up the NFL or MLB. Congress won't do it-the only power that Congress has is the power that the leagues give them.
