"The numbers are what they are, but this deal has all been about how much we’re going to give up, not what we’re going to get, and to go to their numbers and then for them to turn around and fudge what the numbers are going to be.
“It’s just ridiculous, expecting to get a deal done with these people that are trying to pull the wool over your eyes.”
“I don’t know if they were hoping we weren’t going to pick up on it or what, but I don’t know what the right word is…I’m appalled that they would try to get something like that in there under the system we have."
What I don't get is how the league thought it would get away with that move. Do they think the PA's legal staff are a bunch of morons?
