A rich guy in my high school, his father bought a lot of advertisements with the Montreal Expos, and then one day ... Vladimir Guerrero showed up at his barmitzvah and signed a lot of autographs.

Both owners (in this case, ad buyers) and players get a lot of benefits from their life choices.

Obviously, you conveniently leave the fact they made all that cash back +.
Which is it?

Did the players retire and get nothing? Or did they make back all their money "+"?

No matter how logical you want to debate it to be, it remains an assumption.
The only fact you have is that the owners are the ones paying the tabs for that stuff.
It's counter-intuitive economics, but yes, players do pay for some of their benefits, as do all employees everywhere in general.

It's an 8-year deal.
