They can huff and puff all they want about that, they've played their last game at 57% of the pie, period.
If they want to lose a full year of salary so that 8 years from now they have 1% more, then that's well within their power to do so.
Well, the catch is that they ARE going to be paid at 57% if this current negotiation doesn't implode. Which makes this all the more weirder. Both sides have found the perfect storm of gimmicks to try and "win" simultaneously. And yet, here we are...
It's the schmucks that come in afterwards that are subject to the cap reductions and lack of space. Everyone else will get "made whole" and have their cap figure be 88% or something of their actual salary.
