It might suck to be a player, but it seems to be the reality, and it's not going to change anytime soon.
I agree 100% with this. I agree that most players feel screwed or ripped off. The difference is that the owners hold the money and the leverage in the negotiations.

Players got some concessions, they might be able to squeeze a few more $$$ out of the owners, but whatever they have on the table now is most likely the best they will get. Might as well take it and start getting paycheques imo.
