I'm both willing and able to see it objectively, promise.
I'm not convinced you are though based on that comment.
Players backed off their biggest hopes for this round of bargaining last month, when they tabled hopes of getting players to free agency sooner and gave up the idea of adjusting the league's revenue sharing.
If you are labeling things they have green-lighted as something other than a give in negotiating, I'm not sure what to say to change your mind.
If they wanted the last CBA, they would have agreed to it all over again. They're trying to change it because the average player salary has decreased in past seasons while revenue has grown, so they're going to be arguing for things that are adjustments of the current setup.
Basing your opinion on the old format is going to make you biased against the players, because the players would prefer to change it and the owners would prefer to keep it.
