Secondly, the 82 game season is a win financially for the players. More games = more gate revenue = larger HRR. Not to mention that lost games comes right off of their salary; by playing a full season they eliminate that impact.
82 game season is also a win for the owners. Why do you think they made the deal contingent on it? I'd say lots of owners want a full season played
