They want a cap on escrow - if they're looking at the NBA, I wonder if they know that additional escrow isn't topped off by the NBA owners, it's taken out of the pension fund for the players. Essentially, the players have agreed to take all the money up front when they're young enough to easily make that money elsewhere, in favour of taking less money when they're old and retired and have little opportunities to make up the difference. So smart.
