I was on the site and saw this:

All of the players are in silhouette—instead of having a photograph being shown.

This just seems petty to me. You locked them out, I get it, but what’s the point of removing their faces? You’re leaving the stats, AND THE NAMES, up—which will still drive traffic to the site, but is not being able to see Freddie Freeman’s face next to his stats going to force the MLBPA to the bargaining table?

But the “N” in “NIL” stands for “name”, right? Why would it be a problem to use the “Image” but not the name?
