Unless the CBA makes some really major adjustments, they're going to be bleeding badly for the next half-decade.
City might be reluctant to "kick in" money to a owner(s) that has money in the future. 'Things are tough all over' and I would think the taxpayers in Nashville might take a dim view of giving millions of dollars to a owner who can easily afford to pay that money out of their own pockout.
