sucks that its all about money
makes fans really appreciate their players...
Yes/no, I agree they make more than enough money playing. But I do agree with them that if some one signed a contract with them to pay them x amount of money for y years. I would be pissed if they tried to take back that agreement.
For example, say they want to cut players pay by like 20%, they can take 80% of current contracts and have that count against the new salary cap # that they come up with. But they still have to pay the players the amount that they have on their current contract.
It's also horse shit that owners are complaining about the amount of money and years of the contract, but the day before the CBA expires, owners went nuts extending contracts to high amounts for long lengths.
