Why would anyone but the mega-stars of the sport want to decertify? Would decertification not lead to a state of affairs where the mega-stars would get mega-deals (we're talking Alex Rodriguez type money & term) while the bottom half of each roster would get table scraps? Where the Leafs became the Yankees of the sport and the lesser lights slashed & burned payroll like the Marlins?

I haven't been able to understand the PA's motives in this lockout right from the start, so I shouldn't be surprised that I can't understand this either. It seems like a no-brainer to me that, for the players as a whole, they will always do a lot better with the union than without it.
