I can't believe either side would agree to binding arbitration. Too afraid to "lose."

Interesting. There are lots of teams out there operating under a cap that aren't mediocre. Why can't one of the best run franchises excel under the same guidelines as teams that do excel under them?

Well, I'm wondering now how in the world someone can say that deals are negotiated based of the prior deals and then look at the PA's offers and say they qualify. Seems to me those first 5 (well, OK, they were all basically the same as their first) were pretty far removed from the prior CBA. A total revamp of the system. So one has to wonder why they don't have to negotiate based off the old CBA, but the league does.
