It sounds like the owners went back to the current definition of HRR with the proposal sent out today. I'd be curious to know what they dropped from the original proposed changes.

It includes a 9.7% rollback of player salaries immediately. Although, it sounds more like they would put that into escrow, rather than a direct scaleback, which equals essentially, the same thing.

So let's hypothetically say that the new proposal is the 2005 CBA with the following;
2012-2013: Player Portion of HRR = 47.3%
2013-2014: Player Portion of HRR = 48.5%
2014-2015: Player Portion of HRR = 50.0%

And then stays there for the duration of this CBA...

Do you think the players would balk at that?

The basic premise is that nothing else changes from the current CBA to a simple roll back of the Player Portion of HRR with a graduated increase to a true 50%.

No changes to contract length, term, etcetera...
