It is pretty simple. The league as a whole makes money. They keep pissing off the fans and their revenues are going to drop and then they will all be losing. Cut off your nose to spite your face. If the owners AND players don't want to subsidize the lower revenue teams, it is time to let them sink or swim. All of this stuff was supposed to be fixed last time and it looks like these millionaire geniuses just prolonged the problem(s).
All of a sudden I care about football again. I'm also glad I don't have a deposit on season tickets. good luck getting that back!
I do bet that players eventually cave in again whether that is tomorrow or in two years because the owners really don't give a ****. Especially teams that are going to be better off financially not playing than playing. The players risk losing this year's salary along with further deflated salaries if there is a backlash from fans. The players stand the most to gain from getting a deal done. Their careers and earning power as a player are finite. The owners are in it for the long haul.
