Different leagues calculate revenue differently. Take this passage from McKenzie's article referenced above:
It hasn't helped matters that the NHL has been proposing a new definition of Hockey Related Revenue, effectively offering the players a smaller piece of a smaller pie and at the very least confusing us who are math challenged and forcing us to repeatedly ask: Was that (fill in the blank) per cent of old HRR or new HRR?.
Unless you know the exact formula for calculating HRR (or football-related revenue/basketball-related revenue), you can't just say "57% is more than the other leagues get!" The other leagues could be drawing from a much larger revenue source proportionally.
It's just pain.
