Study Guide Bava Batra 72

How can we reconcile Rav Huna with Rabbi Shimon?  The gemara suggests one possibility but it is rejected based on an understanding of Rabbi Shimon’s opinion elsewhere in a braita regarding one who consecrates a field.  Based on also a contradiction within Rabbi Shimon’s statement in our mishna and Rabbi Shimon in the braita, the gemara concludes that RAbbi Shimon in our mishna is not actually his own opinion but what he thinks the rabbis should hold according to their opinion.  The gemara then questions Rabbi Shimon’s opinion in the braita with an opinion of Rabbi Shimon’s in another case.
