Yes AO still make more than enough money after a roleback
The difference is, a rollback would be negotiated into the CBA, a contract opt-out almost certainly wouldn't. And, of course, the contract is only binding for a certain percentage; the rest is left at the mercy of revenue projections via escrow, and as I tried to work through earlier it's conceivable that a potential rollback here would fit within the current escrow bounds.
Controlling yourself is hard to do when you have no choice but to spend to the floor (since the teams that are in real trouble can't even afford that), and even harder to do if you're expected to compete because unused cap space is a wasted resource in that respect. Once the pandora's box of bad contracts is opened, reasonable spending is out the window for most teams, at least until they get to where they are now with new CBA negotiations.
