Not every aspect, but if the owners keep coming up with big ways to satisfy the players and make things work for them, the players are going to have to start giving in on some other things and pleasing the owners. At the end of they day they are their employers and bosses and they need to do things that make sense for the health of the game. A perfect example is the owners wanting to max contracts at 6 years, the players would want 9 or 10, so settling in the middle would be 7 or 8 years. That is exactly how this negotiation is going to go from here on out.
