What about organizations which employ salary caps and other restrictions on whether and how employers may hire certain employees? Examples would include the NFL and the NBA.

Further, the Ivy League already restricts whether and how member institutions may recruit certain student-athletes. On the face of it, this is a straightforward restriction on competition.

Lastly, the NCAA has its on restrictions on whether and how member schools may recruit and hire student-athletes, coaches and staff.

Short versions to your questions are:

1) Salary caps entered into through collective bargaining with the players' union are ok.

2) If it doesn't involve money, it's ok. So limits on recruits are permissible. If the league were to agree on financial aid limits, that implicates antitrust.

Roger. Thanks.

FWIW, it's the consent decree which the Ivies signed with the Justice Department which marks the very beginning of the modern era of Ivy sports. Once the eight schools were allowed to, or forced to, compete on the basis of financial aid, that started the money arms race that we see today.

Not so sure that's relevant to the amount of money invested in these programs, but it sure has led to the proliferation of FA in the league which has massively impacted our programs in a positive way. Still not full scholarships, but we're getting there. Every step in that direction increases the talent in our league.
