You do realize that the money the players were going to be putting into make whole was money taken out of their future share. That would have been money lost long term to ease the amount of money lost short term. Either way, it's money lost.
It's more like being forced to take $5 and set it aside. Then no longer having to set it aside AND being given $5 on top of it. You have access to $10 more dollars in the latter scenario than in the first, but only $5 more than if you never were setting the $5 aside to begin with.
