[QUOTE=Kovalev27;54110661]we don't know what was said in negotiations. my guess is they got those massive signing bonuses because the owners and agents had no clue what kind of rollback there would be. there's no rollback on signing bonuses. so we don't know that it wasn't done in good faith of neither side knowing what was coming.[/QUOTE


The bonuses are lockout protection. They are paid regardless of the games lost. Just an incentive. What we don't know is if this
summer's deals were given out knowing full well the league wiuld insist on rollbacks.
