Not an easy case at all. Look at those running bad businesses, that continue to get large bonuses while their company goes through bankruptcy. Were they really that good to be in their position, only to run the company into the ground, and laugh while they cash a million dollar bonus?
There are players out there that deserve a crazy salary, sure, that's just how it goes. But the fact that these *******s are arguing over millions, and crying about making less money than they already are, while there are 10% of this country out of a job, fighting to keep food on the table, is absurd to me, when this is entertainment to others. I have 0 sympathy for the players at this point. If they would have sat down and tried negotiating a lot sooner, my tone might be a bit different, but they are screwing the fans over, the base that pays their salaries.
