1. What counts as revenue?
2. How do we divide it up?
And #2 overrides #1 because if #1 is adjusted, #2 can be adjusted as well. They are interrelated. So basically, it's just an argument over how much of cash cow each side gets.
The other issues (contract terms, etc) are not going to hold up the season. It's not like they're going to agree to revenue and owner/player split percentages and then cancel the season because of ELCs or contract term limits.
