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.
That makes no sense. You say players are sacrifiying money to get the best contract? What is that "best contract"? It has to be worth more than the money they have lost so far, unless you value the contract rights to be more valuable than money lost, which in turn says PA favors one group of players (players with contracts) over others.
Greedy billionaires? That's rich, I guess you're greedy when you don't want to lose money.
