It was my understanding that a true "rollback" like we saw in 04 was never on the table. Where player contracts would just be immediately slashed a set percentage.

However with an immediate 50% split the players would be collecting their current contracts (based on 57%) all year and then have to give back 7% at the end via escrow. So essentially a cut but not a true "rollback".
