I actually agree. I don't want to see salary terminations, especially knowing that contract length is most likely going to be cut to 4 or 5 years. But the owners are really digging in and from a leverage standpoint, want to completely eliminate guaranteed deals. That's ridiculous and they know they won't get that but they're hoping to meet in the middle and if it gets down to the point where we have already missed games and players are itching to get paid, they may cave and go for something like that.
