You're right, they are doing nothing wrong by asking them to honor their contracts, but they're asking them to be honored as they stand currently, which is a problem. They want an inclusion in the CBA that promises what they signed for is what they'll get, but they know that rollbacks are a possibility. What you signed for isn't set in stone.

Shrug. You go on what information you have from various articles. As I've said before, even if the owners were making money over operating costs, on principle they are fine in asking for 50/50. The players proposals have even asked for a raise in the first year. Lewls.
