They all have a common rallying point that 57% of the revenue share is too high for the players. And its starting to become clear they have the leverage here. I think if the players dont settle soon, they'll get hurt badly, just like last time.
Which is why the players should throw 52% (or 53%) and dropping .5% every year until 50%... Then locked in at 50% for 2-4 years onto the table. The owners will have to take it seriously... It would put the players out in front in the eyes of the fans and the owners would be the villains if there is a lockout for even just one day.

If they hold out until after a lockout the owners may throw a season away to get them under 50%
