A meaningful concession would be UFA eligibility or less restrictions on contract length ect, not we're willing to take slightly less of your contracts we signed a few months earlier.
So when the owners are asking the players for something they don't have currently, and the players agree, it is a concession the players are making.
When the players ask the owners for something they don't currently have, and the owners agree, it is not a concession that the owners are making. It is zero concession.
So this is your logic? Well then carry on with your new world logic.
