The league's argument that the cap should be 50% to make an even split is based on the ridiculous belief that all teams will maximize their cap.
But the reality is that a 50% cap will mean that no more than 40-43% will go to the players.
I don't disagree with you BUT we need to start to move forward. The small markets blindly see a 57% revenue share to the players. The large market owners are dishing out long team contacts & know they will make more money if the Bettman plan gets accepted!!
The players don't want to give anything back to the owners. A soft cap will keep salaries up & make both sides feel they won!
