2 weeks ~ 7.5% of salary. Will players ever get that back?

I'll wait for Ron Hainsey to explain that one.
Yawn. If the players were so gung-ho on that deal, they would have told Fehr they wanted to take it instead of giving him 97% support to go the disclaimer of interest route.

And the $300m isn't really the main issue at this point...
