It would be silly for the 'grinders' of the PA to sign off on something that kills the stars. The stars are the reason the average salary is $2.4m, and that you can make over a million bucks to play as a 7/8 d-man (Andrew Alberts anyone).
Plus, 1) nobody pays the exorbitent ticket prices to watch plugs and plumbers, and 2) The better deals the star players get, the better off the plumbers will do. One only has to look at some of the stupid money thrown at fringe players in recent years.
