No league would ever take that risk. You might call it minimal in you eyes, but heck its not your money either.
You understand that the PA was proposing to have the old CBA extended for a year? And if the league was that concerned about a strike, they could have asked the PA to sign a non-strike agreement. If the union refused, then you could say a strike was a possibility.
