The can't all be elite markets. Every league has softer markets, to some degree it has to work for them or we'll only have 20 teams.

Keep hearing this, but we're talking about a deal the sets the structure for a minimum 3 billion revenue/yr over at least, minimum, 5 years. Working out how 15 billion bare minimum will shake down. 100 million or whatever the Classic might be worth, frankly, small potatoes. Symbolically very important though, yes.

I think you're right about the deadline, and that's exactly how Fehr is framing it to with his "we'll play under the old terms" spiel.
