  • Break out the knives! Now the (always upstanding) agents are pushing back against Bloch's decision: "Any and all speculation that the league is going to claw back these other contracts ... would be in complete violation of the collective bargaining agreement and it would be a complete infringement of the players’ rights under the CBA...Any attempt to do so would be absolutely predatory behaviour by the league, would be in bad faith and not in the spirit of the CBA."
