No, it was part of the hiring negotiation. I'll give you this salary, these benefits and this pension. Trust me. My word is my bond.

Now the league is making record amounts and feels invincible so why not tell the officials they have no power and have to take whatever shit the league wants to throw at them while breaking promises. It might work but it isn't something to admire.

All generalizations are dangerous.
