Okay.
No. The players are sacrificing money -- maybe -- to use the collective bargaining process to negotiate the best contract.

It's easy for for internet know-it-alls to sneer at the players "but if they accepted the deal on Oct. 16"

You use the process and you negotiate and you don't get pushed offer by a bunch of greedy billionaires.

If it costs you money in the long run, it hardly matters.
