Remember when there was never going to be a hard salary cap? I do.

It would be easy to lower the ceiling (or slow it's upward movement) and increase revenue sharing. More importantly, the players salary is tied to league revenue more explicitly than the per team salary cap. Players have lost money to the escrow account, making the increasing cap a double edged sword for anyone with an older contract.

Don't assume the players would be entirely against fiscal restructuring just because you don't understand how it all works.

All the players with long-term deals are better off with a frozen cap as of today.
