This strongly validates the calculation for 2012-2013 escrow rate as there was no confusion on which numbers should be included from CapGeek. As it stands, escrow clawback in 2012-2013 at a 50/50 split would be less than it was in either 2008-2009 or 2009-2010, although more than 2011-2012 (no data on other years, except I believe 2005-2006 actually had the owners submit excess payments to the players as immediate post lockout revenue estimates were ridiculously off).
so in 2012-2013 how much do players get back of their escrow payement? last year they got all but .5% back, how much do they get in 2012-2013 under the new lower rate?
