They want a fair deal, they shouldnt have to take financial risk, they are players.

If your employer wanted to cut your paychq by 7% just to make sure he could keep his Mercedes Benz, how would you feel?
A player who plays a few years and is out of the league has made more money than most people will in their entire lives and they can still work after.

Also, the 7% cut is made whole in three years so it's a temporary cap cut with no current salaries being cut.
