I seriously doubt that Forbes' number are correct, as much of it has to do with estimates, but I'm sure that at the minimum you can split the difference and feel pretty safe. They do cite a couple big numbers that were excluded from the league's figures, which could be somewhat accurate. Point is, the players, most likely, were looking at a set of books that were not accurate. It's tough to put forth a proposal when you don't really know the numbers. Of course TSN, in its pro-owner state, had to throw in verbage that suggests that the Forbes' numbers are inaccurate, but one thing is for sure, there's no way the losses are understated, and I'm sure many financial analysts and accountants can poke holes and eat away at the league's losses.
