Oh, I'm certain as **** that their advisors DON'T know what they're doing. The players already lost this negotiation.

There were $500M between the two proposals a week ago (cumulative over all years). Then the players went out and lost $500M letting games get cancelled (presuming we only have 3/4 of a season at this point). And the league withdrew its best offer. There's no way in hell the league is coming back with 51% in time for the players to make money back that they lost refusing to even negotiate off their best deal (a deal better or equal to what baseball, football AND b-ball give their players!).

The game is now how long does it take for the high school dropout membership of this union to realize they are ****ing themselves with every day they refuse to negotiate off of linkage and 50-50.
