Player: ‘I Think We’re Playing in a Month’
But one of the players who will be in the meeting today had a different take when reached by the Herald yesterday.
“I know this is bad,” he said. “We all know this is bad. But what are we going to do?
“Yeah, guys are talking about decertification and taking the league to court and all that stuff right now, but I talked to a lawyer, and he said there’s definitely no guarantee on what would happen if we made this a legal case. So we could be costing ourselves a lot.
“I expect there to be a lot of (expletive) off guys in the room (this) morning. But when it’s all over, if we send this to the players for a vote, I think we’re playing games in a month.”
The player paused and then added: “Hey, we know we did all the giving in this deal. The league didn’t give us anything. We’re the ones who are giving up a ton of money. But what can we do at this point?”
