i dont see how the owners get a cba with rollbacks or reductions in revenue percentage of the salary cap with salaries and going thru the roof with both ends of the earning scale going big on contracts.
What was the alternative for Nashville in that situation? Losing Weber for 4 late firsts could very likely have been a death knell itself. Better to go down swinging than getting pushed around and watching the team and fan base you built slowly dwindle down as a result.

I wouldn't be surprised if Nashville had decided early on to match and let it play out for nearly a week to draw more attention to the situation.
