Got a very general business question here:

Is there some unwritten ethos in business that if there isn't a rule prohibiting something then there's no reason why it can't be done?

All of these particular rules that the League want to put into place or feel the need to have in place, some of them seem really unnecessary and just issues that can further bog down negotiations. Why the need to have to create all of these rules, most of which are simply to restrict the owners themselves from doing things (things that could in one way or another find ways to pay out more money to players). Can the PA really complain on legal grounds that if there isn't a particular rule against doing something that the owners therefore don't have the right not to do it? If I'm reading this right, then what a ****ing stupid mentality we've created in the legal system to have it be bad to not do something, simply because there's no rule prohibiting it, even if we still think that it wouldn't be a good thing to do.
