they've already gained some contract rights back. And they are still negotiating.
Anyone that thinks the players would have been better off signing any of the previous offers than holding out is not thinking clearly imo, the players have done much better than almost anyone thought they could... and they still stand to gain more. They aren't gaining on the last CBA, but they are gaining huge on anything the owners offered. There is no way they would have been better off signing any of those earlier offers.
Yeah, but none of these gains are greater than the money they've already lost. It's a simple EV calculation.
