To which, both of our sources reported, “Gary said: ‘Yes.’”

And further down;
Every core component of every league CBA proposal this time around is meant to restrict the players’ rights to choose.

What the league is proposing — no, what the league is demanding — is that the players accept the most restrictive system in pro sports.

In all honesty, when I saw 'Larry Brooks' on the page tab, I closed it right away...
