I'll wait until the players ratify to celebrate

De Smith thinks this is a fair deal, not sure the players are totally convinced. Not yet, at least

Say it ain't so Smoot. Players will catch a shit storm if they hold up this deal any longer I believe. They have to want to get back badly.

I agree. Enough is enough. The players need to sign the damn thing and put this crap to bed.

If all that's lost out of this is the HOF game, it's a win for all.
