Not being hardliners doesn't mean they are "will accept anything teams". Many of the not-so-hard liners likely have no issues with front loading etc etc etc but change the question to full linkage or not and all of a sudden thos no-so-hardliners become hard liners. That's what the PA has done so far...refuse full linkage. The PA in the end doesn't have to accept full linkage or ratify a deal that has full linkage in it, but they haven't even attempted to negotiate under the same financial framework of the expired CBA to see what such a deal would look like....despite saying they'd be happy playing under such a framework (which is of course just PR lies).
In the end the piece is really just a "I have nothing to write about so I'll just speculate."
