The thing is though, as far as I'm understanding, decertifying takes away from the players as much as it gives. And eventually they'll want to form a union again and then they're all back to square one. However the owners handle the situation will obviously be different from when there was a union, but that's all likely to revert back just as soon as the players unionize again; and are the owners going to be any softer then... Haha... High hopes!
If the players do ultimately decertify, I understand that it means that the Salary Cap is then void. However, would there be anything preventing owners from offering only short contracts, or would that be considered "colusion".
