Sorry I can't answer your questions, Rob, but I will say that even if 
player's salaries were confidential, certain agents would have enough 
knowlege to suggest to their clients that they need to ask for more 
money.  In fact, it might even strengthen the position of the major 
agents, since they would have the advantage of knowing about more 
clients.  In principle, though, I think we would all be far better off 
if we didn't know what athletes are making.
