The owners' offer included full pay. They don't want to give the owners the expanded playoffs right now because they want it as a bargaining chip for next winter's CBA negotiations.
The owner's offer included full pay only if there are no additional cancelations, the players believe that there is a higher chance of cancelled games in a five month season because six months allows for more make up opportunities.
The bought and paid for Biden administration has come out supporting the owners, Biden's people met with the owners last week and strangely enough supported their exact plan. The players skipped the meeting. Biden's team says that there will be more vaccines available in a month so it is better to wait. A ridiculous statement considering the relatively small number of players compared to the economic impact in AZ and FL. Give each team 100 doses, a drop in the bucket compared to the total number available and play ball.
