Second, I don't believe they are "paid", in the regular sense, for the Preseason, so that's their "leverage" as far as I understood it.
yeah it was a cheap shot. I admit it.

I just can't believe so many players think the agreement is garbage and still want to strike. the got the best they could with the negotiation, so deal with it. striking isn't going to make the deal any better.
and they'll never get back the money the lost if they do strike.

they have no real leverage. At a certain point, they should take they gains they managed to get, take the raise in pay, be glad they have jobs and get to play ball for a living.
