It's the epitome of the 1%. How is the union doing it's job protecting about 20 players while the other ones wouldn't even be affected at all?
Is it because union leadership tends to be the players more likely to get the long term contracts?
And they rally around "we want the owners to honor the deals they signed." Why? Why would the average player not want owners to be able to abrogate those deals right now? It means more money for the average players.
They aren't preserving DP's contract. They want to preserve those types of deals moving forward.
The 1% stuff is pure hate. Inked deals will be preserved going forward if I'm not mistaken. They aren't rewriting them, just changing rules on what can be signed.
