What idiots!! Do they not see basketball everywhere during the season?

NBA $$$$$ >>>> NHL $ - ainec (yet the NHLPA can't see that)
You are calling other people idiots but then read what you put here

Great job there Adam Smith


The economics in the NHL and NBA are very similiar despite your claims and repeated use of the > symbol.

Do you know what percentage of revenue the NBA players got in the cba before this current one that they are on ? 57%

Did you know that before the NBA lockout the same number of teams were losing money and were having trouble making the cap floor?


If you actually read the reports out there the apparent holdup on a CBA is the owners reluctance to adopt a meaningful revenue sharing program.

The onus appears to be on the owners more than the players this time around.
