And that's what, if the lockout drags on, will ultimately end it.

The 40% that made $1M or less (57% that made $2M or less) will freak out over the lost wages so that the elite 10% can protect their huge contracts and bank cash in Europe this year.

The players keep talking about revenue sharing, I'd be curious to see how they'd react to a proposal to double the minimum salary to $1.1M by reducing the maximum salary from 20% of the cap to 10% (14M to 7M)?
