absolute garbage. He is so extreme it's not even funny.

People like him is why this has gone on so long!

Why do you care about contracts longer than 7 years(what the owners are offering for resigning own player) malhorta? you've probably never gotten one longer than 3 years!

everything else is so insignificant i dont know why they wouldnt just give it to the owners and end this.

You could argue variance, but what else is a big issue for the players? 20-30 players are on a contract longer than 7 years(ok 5 if you're a UFA, but you can still do sign and trades with this). Why are they fighting tooth and nail to get 8+ years?
