“I think that it has worked better for the players than they anticipated coming out of the lockout in 2005,” he (Paul Kelly) said recently. “I think there was a great deal of fear and unhappiness (when it was signed). There was a lot of unhappiness about the fact that the players had agreed to a rollback of salaries by 28 per cent. There was a fear of what a cap system was going to mean - not only for them personally, but for their team.
“I think as it has evolved ... it’s actually worked relatively well.”
Of course, there are elements of the deal he’d prefer to see changed.
