Sure, the PA may not be giving you what you want, but counter-offer, negotiate, discuss, bring up the problems, etc. Simply rejecting the proposals that quickly doesn't buy you any good faith, trust or cooperation. How can you lead a group in a negotiation if you're so socially inept? If you have to present the final proposal for it to be accepted by the PA, check your ego at the door or go to hell.
Its easy to say no to proposals when the parts you have to have in are taken out.
The players are not negotiating in good faith.
