CBA No Loss For Players

From Joe Starkey at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

“If people are going to chastise professional athletes who are making a lot of money, they need to look at the deal we are probably going to end up signing,” [Jeremy] Roenick said.

As if the players would be forced to subsist on food stamps and ramen noodles.

Now look: Thomas Vanek makes $10 million, and the average salary has officially cracked $1.9 million, passing the pre-lockout figure of $1.83 million.

A crushing loss for the players?

“If there were those who viewed it in the words you use,” says player agent Don Meehan, “I don’t know how they could view it that way now.”
