The "Super Bowl" of The Legal World

Kojo chats with sportswriter Dave Zirin about the potential of a labor lockout during next year's NFL season -- and what it says about the business of pro sports.

Professional football is gearing up for its biggest game of the season this weekend, but the bigger showdown could take place in the legal arena later this year. There's a strong chance a labor dispute could result in an NFL lockout next fall. We explore what this dispute says about the business of professional sports and where consumers and fans fit into it.
