It is not so much the percentage (54%) that is the problem, imo. I think the real problem is what revenues are included. Is it strictly ticket and tv money? What about concessions? Parking? Some arenas contract this out, while some arenas are self-op, and some do not have parking at all. The players do not TRUST the owners #'s, regardless of how many times Arthur Levitt evaluates their financials.

The NFL is going to have a labor war on it's hands in a few years. The NFLPA has said they are going to demand more revenues be included in their share. Currently, they only get tv revenues, they want a cut of the gate, and merchandise as well.
