The problem is the players' interest in the details. I would dearly love to hear candid comments about the PA three years after the deal when all of the noise has died down. Get a reporter to go around to a large group of players soliciting their thoughts on the current machinations of the PA and their involvement in them. I am just giving a summary of all the little quotes I have picked up during times when the CBA was not at stake. It might be in the owners' best interest to push their youngsters to become involved on more than a cursory level.
