They always talk about the next CBA, same thing happening, so why not push it out as far as you can, and get all you can get today. Certainly today's players would go for that, do you really think they care about the next CBA if it is 12 years out?
the prob with a long cba is it might not work well for 1 side or the other. if the current cba ran another 5 years many of the leagues teams would be suffering. but of course due to the gracious nature of the PA they would have played through while negotiating a deal.
