I do believe that the owners should honor the contracts from the past CBA thats only fair. they were signed under the old rules.
Something to remember, the sports PAs aren't real unions. There are two classes of players, the scrubs and the elites. The "union" serves the rich elites at the sacrifice of the more plentiful scrubs. That's not how a real union works.
As for honoring the old deals, the agents at least fully expected a rollback, which was why so many of them were front-loading deals with disproportionate big dollars prior to the 12-13 year in long-term deals.
