Wow, that's some hardcore euphemism.

5% of several billion dollars is absolutely significant amount of money. In cases like this, the players do seem to have a solid argument which is: You demanded a percentage of the league revenue. You've gotten that exact percentage. What is your problem, again?

Sure, players dislike the escrow and that will likely be changed but to throw around 5% of the league revenue like it's just "changing the pie" is a bit silly.
