You're desperately trying to split hairs to try make an argument that has no merit, even if accepted. Furthermore, you completely missed the underlying point of the statement. On top of all that, only once under the 2005 CBA were contracts "paid in full" by the silly (extremely inaccurate) standards of the people trying to make that argument.

But, as has always been my position, had the players simply attempted for one tenth of a second to negotiate that the league pay that miniscule difference out of their pocket, they would have given in but they didn't. That was a proposal that was designed to be negotiated against, but the players refused to negotiate. There were several ways to get that imaginary difference hammered out, and for you to try argue that makes it somehow unworthy (and seriously, what sort of silly strawman was your original post anyway?) is at best disingenuous, but most likely just pointless.
