After chewing on where both sides are...

A 10 yr deal seems to be the most likely solution to where both sides want to be...

A modification on the original:

Give the players a guarantee of salary for the first 3 or 4 yrs that they want... and the owners get their % in the latter yrs of the deal.

Yrs 1 - 5
Players get their $1.89 bil.
Increase annually at 2.9% (est inflation) each yr. we'll say 3% at yr for 4yrs.

Owner protection (in case revenue plateaus): the players' share caps at a max of 55% in yrs 3-5.
Players protection (in case revenue explode): The players' share floors at 48%.

Yrs 6-7
Players' share becomes linked at 51%

Yrs 8-10
Players' share becomes linked at 50%

...........

How does it look with the modest 5% annual increase:

Yr 1: $3.30, 1.89 bil - $63.0 mil mp, $71.0 mil cap (~57%)
Yr 2: $3.47, 1.94 bil - $64.7 mil mp, $72.7 mil cap (~56%)
Yr 3: $3.64, 2.00 bil - $66.7 mil mp, $74.7 mil cap (~55%)
Yr 4: $3.82, 2.07 bil - $69.0 mil mp, $77.0 mil cap (~54%)
Yr 5: $4.01, 2.13 bil - $71.0 mil mp, $78.0 mil cap (~53%)

Yr 6: $4.21, 51% - $71.6 mp, $79.6 mil cap
Yr 7: $4.42, 51% - $75.1 mp, $83.1 mil cap
Yr 8: $4.64, 50% - $77.3 mp, $85.3 mil cap
Yr 9: $4.88, 50% - $81.3 mp, $89.3 mil cap
Yr 10: $5.12, 50% - $85.3 mp, $93.3 mil cap
