that's why i prefer the luxury tax(it's sort of liek robin hood, taking from the rich and giving to the poor). I personally think the Owners are playing hardball right now because they know the players won't settle for a hard cap, they want to drive the luxury tax numbers low(35-40ish) when they settle
