The other club profits, especially if the club is a franchise that is losing money. The league should actually reward players who invest money in teams that are in the salary cap basement. The additional revenue can be used to get them closer to the cap.
In addendum, the league could give players a higher revenue share as stock options instead of a straight $$$ cut. Thus, instead of haggling over current revenues, down the line you would strengthen the league by having players emerge as majority owners rather than random billionaires.
