    Clearly a player friendly article. He uses Shaziers injury as justification yet if there was no 5th year option and he had signed a lucrative contract prior to his injury, the team would have been out of the guaranteed portion of the contract. Doubt the writer would shed a tear for that.

    You should be able to keep your 1st rd pick for 5 years if you want. I do think the franchise tag may be gone after the next CBA and that's probably fair.

    I look for a strike, unless major things can happen in the CBA agreemenrt.
    The players want more leverage. I am afraid you and I will be paying to watch our favorite team on TV
    when they play.

    I'd settle for an expanded roster. It would be nice to see some of the back-ups actually get used as back-up when a starter is clearly playing hurt.

    I'm thinking getting rid of the franchise tag might hurt some of the players in certain positions. Some of those guys wouldn't be getting what they get if they didn't have a superstar getting that franchise tag money pushing the payscale up.
