It is worthless b/c it essentially does nothing to curb the problem of arbitration, errant spending, and an overwhelming large amount of money being lost. The rollback is a one time event that will just reescalate up in a few years time.

Stop thinking as a fan & start thinking as a player.

You got a better chance that 35 years old player would accept a non-guaranteed contract because they would just want to play this season since there's no much gas (seasons) left in the tank (player).
In the NFL, if a player starts the season on the roster, he will make his full salary. Looking at it like this, I think it can be a very reasonable way to approach things.....although the Union would never agree to it.
