That the wealthiest teams pocket their gains, unfairly and against any market principle that most businesses have to deal with, but that doesn't seem to bother you one bit. There is greed here, but you cannot see the worst case of it.
And other than putting the cap floor/ceiling on a % basis, what does the PA's proposal do differently that makes it better?
"Itís not as if Donald Fehr was lying to us, several players said. Rather, itís as if he has been economical with information, these players believe, not sharing facts these players consider to be vital."
