I agree a bit with both sides. The current revenue sharing gives 57% to players -- this is much higher than NFL or MLB, both of which are far more financially stable. On that point, I agree that 50/50 or something close to it is reasonable.
However, it's hard to see $100 million contracts being thrown around by teams that are not at the top of the earnings/profit scale, and then hearing those same teams cry poor.
I really don't care which side "wins" - I just want the powers that be locked in a room with no food or bathroom breaks until they come to an agreement. Or as one Flyers fan suggested, every 1/2 hour throw a scorpion into the locked room until a deal is completed.
If there is a lockout, the players stand to lose a hell of a lot more money than they would with a rollback; the owners stand to lose a hell of a lot in terms of gate receipts and some like Phoenix in community awareness.
Basically, just shut up and friggen' play.
