I mentioned the previous strike because it shows the players clearly give a damn about making money off their image. The CBA is mentioned by nobody but you and I'm not sure why you're dragging it into this. Like I said, players are entitled to a share of revenue made off their image. That's because anybody is.
The logo they used is now Giroux's face? Interesting.

And if they used his last name?

Under that logic, he should be allowed to sue whoever employs Alexandre Giroux since he's using his name and a different logo?
