See I think that would be a solid compromise, although I'm sure they'd have to work in something just in case revenues dropped. If the owners aren't 100% dead set on a big initial drop in salaries, that would be good.
Say it was 57% last year, 54% next year, 52% the following, and 50% after that. That would be good for the players at least. But the owners would probably want something a little quicker. I dunno.
Even past that point, there is a big problem with the salary cap going so high. I do think they'll have to let the floor and cap loosen up a bit. In five years, the floor will be back close to $60M. Unless there is some SERIOUS revenue sharing.
