A luxury tax is entirely different than a salary cap. Hockey players - and baseball players - are willing to take a luxury tax. A luxury tax does not define a specific player share of revenue. That is the key issue in this dispute.

Football has a terrible CBA for the players because they are easily replaced. Basketball players also have a poor agreement for them because except for a handful of superstars they are all easily replaced.

Baseball and players get a better deal because they can't be replaced.

Why did you think there was a difference? Obviously baseball and hockey players have more leverage. They are worth more.
