Is anyone actually saying that the deal should be accepted as-is?

It appears to me that the vast majority of frustration is directed at the PA's reluctance to negotiate throughout this process, beginning last spring and following through to the most recent revelation that they have not yet responded to a 3-day-old offer.

Is it too much to ask that they negotiate? Or is a completed agreement going to somehow emerge from a season-long staredown?

The old CBA doesn't count as a starting point if we're talking concessions and percentage share, but it does count if we're talking about caps and linkage.
I'm with you on that one.
