UFA as opposed to RFA. Two totally different circumstances.

The Avs' offers have been fair, nothing embarrassing about either. The Avs' payroll has no bearing on what they have offered O'Reilly.
UFA vs RFA has some merit. But when we signed all of our players, everyone in the main threads couldn't believe how cheap they were getting guys signed. Sherman was very frugal in negotiations with the RFA's this past off season. RoR called his bluff. RoR deserves more than Jones, doesn't matter if he is a UFA or not. It is the same situation with Benn. He is IMO Dallas' best player. So why are you going to jerk him around. You are too young to make what you deserve? These are your franchise players.
