Somewhat sure, but the issue isn't that it's overlooked, the issue is that the players who signed these deals knowing this then whine about it when the rules are applied. So in that case, don't sign and don't blame owners for exercising their rights in a CBA negotiation.
The same can be said of the teams. They may not be happy if new rules come in where they might be punished for those existing back diving, retirement contracts but don't whine about it (except behind closed doors when determining what the strategy and desires for a new CBA are). But the teams aren't whining about it publicly every chance they get. They'll deal with it. Players need to deal with it as well.
