The C.B.A. was not reached this evening to my chagrin.
The owners negotiated in bad faith in the beginning with the $4 billion they had guaranteed from the networks. Then the players may have countered knowing that they can de-certify the union and litigate.
I really don't care whose fault it is.
I, just like you all, just want to see the game played.
Since they have all these problems haggling over money, I'm going to help them out (in my own mind) and map out what the agreement should be like.
Turn the page to see what it should be like.
