GCs and their contract/waivers

How much do you think General Contractors really know what is in their contracts? Based on in-person reviews with some over contracts I think really not much. Sadly the sub-contractors don’t read it as well.

Just got a look at a final waiver form yesterday that honestly looks to be purposely confusing. It doesn’t call out the GC name or the sub name but instead uses the word “undersigned” 10 different times in 3 very short paragraphs. Bottom line unlike the progress waiver signed by suppliers during the job this GC deviated their wording significantly from their progress forms. Was this a honest mistake, something simply overlooked? Or was it intentional to delay payment to subs as what to one of the subs we work with experienced?
