Exactly, that is what a hold out is...he sits and gets nothing at all until the team caves in and pays up his demands
Again, he did exactly that in NY twice...
His "leverage" is he won't play unless you pay him...and I am thinking he is going to want big gauranteed money...not money that vanishes completely with an injury
